  Notes of art in Lombardy

On the ancient road that led from Cremona to Bergamo, is located, not far from the southern gate of S. Giuseppe, the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie. Sober architecture made of bricks, has the main gabled front, tripartite by a pair of pilasters, with a rosette and a beautiful portal in the middle. The sumptuous and important decoration of the interior contrasts with the simplicity of the exterior collection. Enchanting and elegant are the pictorial cycles, in tempera and fresco, adorning the surfaces of the walls and vaults by Giulio Campi, Bernardino and Francesco Carminati and the son of Francesco Scanzi. The rich clay frame that makes up the precious frieze, once entirely colored, is the work of the plasticist Gian Antonio Pezzoni, a native of Soncino.
