San Gioachimo Square

The church was built in 1881-85 in honour of Vincenzo Goacchino Pecci (Pope Leon XIII). Its cruciform layout, topped by a cupola with octagonal cupola base, is evocative of Albertine and Bramantesque architecture. More eclectic and forced than the nineteenth century style is the renaissance style of Pastro, who restored the decor (1929-31) and the glasswork (1930-36).

More About Milan

Italy’s and perhaps the world’s capital of fashion and design, Milano is home to the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, which is possibly the world’s oldest shopping mall. The city is currently undergoing an architectural renaissance, which will culminate in a new skyline for the Expo 2015, which will be hosted in Milano. Visitors can take advantage of an extensive public transportation system, which includes metro, buses, trolleys and trams.
