The Church of San Sepolcro: upper church and crypt

The church of San Sepolcro stands in the place where the forum was located in Roman times: it is built on two levels and although its foundation dates back to 1030, the dedication to the Holy Sepulcher dates back to the time of the crusades, when the archbishop of Milan Anselmo from Bovisio celebrated the anniversary of the Lombard expedition to the Holy Land.
The church was then heavily remodeled to give it the appearance of the Holy Sepulcher of Jerusalem, but over the centuries it underwent numerous reconstructions, among which the heaviest ones were carried out at the behest of Carlo Borromeo, who totally modified the interior and placed alongside the church the Ambrosiana complex, which today houses some works from the church,
like the fresco with the Pietà by Bramantino.
The crypt, also remembered in some drawings by Leonardo da Vinci and still cloaked in timeless charm, is covered with marble slabs from the Augustan era that come from the ancient flooring of the Roman Forum and retains some frescoes, the beautiful sarcophagus of the Campesian school of the fourteenth century which contained some relics of Terrasanta.
