During the XVI and XVII centuries Milan suffers from foreign rule, plagues and droughts. During this dramatic period two cardinals, Carlo Borromeo and his cousin Federico, bring a new light to the city. They renovate the interest in cultural studies across the city, founding famous cultural institutions and providing answers to the needs of the city.
Both of them promote the building of new places of worship, designed following the strict instructions of the Concilio di Trento, making the heart of Milan shine from the new Baroque shapes.
