Meaningful May, a meaningful place This is the church where I grew up, in Milan. The architecture is elegant and majestic at the same time. On the façade (picture 1) you can see many statues that represent scenes of the Passion of Christ. Inside, over the altar, there is a large fresco of Mary crowned. This is why is called Santa Maria della Passione: Saint Mary of the Passion. It was built starting in 1486 and it survived for more than five centuries. It improved its charm despite wars, political changes, and robberies! It makes me wonder to think how many talented artists, generous donors, and simple devotees, spent their time and energies to make this place the way it is today.
