  Notes of art in Lombardy

A small and harmonious Renaissance church by the Cremonese architect Agostino De 'Fondulis, it houses a small cloister belonging to the ancient hospice of the friars of Santo Spirito, to whom the church was founded. Its beautiful front overlooking Piazza Trento and Trieste is characterized by a giant order. Tripartite of high pilasters with Corinthian capitals that support a high trabeation, is crowned by a tympanum. The terracotta of the façade is lightened and animated by the opening of the large oculus in the center, of the two side niches and by the volute decoration that stands out in the center of the pediment. The church's volume is dominated by the majestic octagonal drum that encloses the hemispherical dome inside.
