The Basilica of Sant’Ambrogio is a world-known monument in the heart of Milano, founded by the bishop of Milan Ambrogio between 379 and 386 AD. in a holy area dedicated to the burials of christian martyrs. Even if it has been modified and restored many times in its history, the building is considered to be the most interesting example of lombard romanic architecture and a jewel preserving masterpieces of art.
The Oratorio della Passione, next to the Basilica, is an oratory of the XVth century, a hall with a quadrangolar apse and a groin vault once all painted with frescoes by the milanese painter Luini with the history of the Passion of Christ. Part of the fresco decoration were unfortunately teared away from the walls at the end of the XIX century and sold on auction (3 pieces are nowadays in the Victoria&Albert Museum) but the integrity of the place is still preserved.
