Storia

Le origini della chiesa si ascrivono al 1577 quando l’allora arcivescovo di Milano,Carlo Borromeo decide la costruzione di una parrocchia nel villaggio rurale di Calvairate, appena fuori dai bastioni spagnoli di Milano, dedicata al culto di santa Maria Nascente.

Nel 1873, con l’annessione del borgo di Calvairate al comune dei Corpi Santi e poi a quello di Milano con la conseguente espansione della metropoli e l’aumento della popolazione anche nel quartiere stesso, la chiesa si trovava ormai in pessimo stato, cadente e quasi inutilizzabile e non in grado di accogliere tutti i fedeli. Passarono altre trentadue anni e nel 1896 l’arcivescovo Andrea Carlo Ferrari decise la costruzione di una nuova chiesa nel quartiere, con una nuova ubicazione rispetto alla precedente ma sempre all’interno dell’area. La chiesa venne dedicata il 31 ottobre1896 dallo stesso cardinal Ferrari a Santa Maria del Suffragio.

Descrizione

Esterno

La facciata principale della chiesa, che prospetta su corso XXII Marzo, è a salienti. Essa, con paramento murario in blocchi di pietra chiara ed inserti in mattoni rossi, presenta, nella parte inferiore, tre portali ogivali strombati, con lunette musive. In quella centrale, è raffigurata la Madonna in trono col Bambino. I portali bronzei, opera di Ercole Franz De Vecchi, sono stati realizzati nel 1996 e, nello stesso anno, inaugurati dall’allora arcivescovo di Milano Carlo Maria Martini. Il portale centrale raffigura Storie della vita di Maria, quello di sinistra lAnnunciazione e quello di destra la Sacra Famiglia. Al centro della facciata, in corrispondenza della navata centrale, si apre il grande rosone circolare.

Interno

L’interno della chiesa è a croce latina, con tre navate e profondo coro absidato.

Le tre navate, di tre campate ciascuna, sono coperte convolta a crociera e sono divise da due file di archi a tutto sesto poggianti di pilastri polistili in mattoni rossi. Sulla crociera, si eleva il tiburioottagonale, illuminato da trifore romaniche.

Gli affreschi delle pareti laterali del presbiterio realizzati da Aldo Carpi de’ Resmini (noto soprattutto per le vetrate del duomo), rappresentano la Resurrezione e la Crocefissione (1946), che riflettono l’esperienza del maestro nei lager nazisti.

Nel transetto di destra, entro un’abside rettangolare convolta a botte, si trova il moderno battistero. Al centro dell’area sopraelevata, vi è il fonte battesimale, di Ercole Franz De Vecchi, in marmo di Carrara con inserti in bronzo raffiguranti la Samaritana al pozzo, il Sacrificio di Isacco, il Cieco nato e la Resurrezione di Lazzaro.

Il presbiterio occupa interamente lo spazio del coro e dell’abside poligonale. I moderni arredi sacri che lo compongono – altare, ambone e sede – sono stati realizzati inmarmo di carrara e bronzo nel 2006, in occasione dei 110 anni della consacrazione della chiesa. L’antico altare maggiore, invece, è in stile neoromanico, in marmi policromi, con decorazioni a bassorilievo sul paliotto e sull’alzata e rilievi di Leone Lodi spostato nel 2006 nell’adiacente cappella di San Proto. L’ancona accoglie il Trittico dell’Addolorata, diEugenio Cisterna, con predella su sfondo oro.

Alla destra dell’abside, si apre la cappella di San Proto, costruita nel 1933 per accogliere le reliquie del santo martire e ristrutturata nel 1984. L’ambiente, a croce latina con transetto poco sporgente ed abside semicircolare, ha un moderno presbiterio con arredi in legno, e grande crocifisso.

La bella statua in alabastro Mater Misericordiae, il grande candelabro Cero pasquale in marmo e la statua sempre in marmo dedicata a Sant’Antonio sono di Leone Lodi. La statua di Santa Monica, in terracotta patinata, è di Valerio Pilon.

Alcuni affreschi furono eseguiti nel 1946 da Aldo Carpi e da Raffaele Albertella.

Organo a canne

Sulla cantoria a ridosso della parete fondale del transetto sinistro, si trova l’organo a canne Tamburini, ricostruito nel 1988 riutillizando il materiale fonico del precedente strumento (1950,opus 286), a sua volta riforma dello strumento opus 36, del1909, originariamente a ridosso della controfacciata della navata centrale.

L’organo, a trasmissione mista, meccanica per i manuali e il pedale, elettrica per i registri e le combinazioni, ha tre tastiere di 61 note ciascuna e una pedaliera concavo-radiale di 32 note.

History

Church origins dates back to 1577 when the then Archbishop of Milan, Carlo Borromeo, decided to build a parish in the rural village of Calavaro, just outside the Spanish boulevards of Milan, devoted to the cult of Santa Maria Nascente.

In 1873, with the annexation of the village of Calvairate to the commune of the Holy Corps and then to that of Milan with the consequent expansion of the metropolis and the increase of the population even in the neighborhood itself, the church was now in a state of weakness, falling and almost useless and unable to accommodate all the faithful. Thirty-two years passed and in 1896 Archbishop Andrea Carlo Ferrari decided to build a new church in the neighborhood, with a new location compared to the former but always within the area. The church was dedicated on October 31, 1896 by the same Cardinal Ferrari to Santa Maria del Suffragio.

Description

External

The main facade of the church, which looks onto XXII March, is salient. It has a masonry block in light stone blocks and red brick inserts, and at the bottom there are three oblique gabled doors, with lunette mosaic. In the central one, the Madonna on the throne with the Child is depicted. Bronze portals, by Franz De Vecchi, were created in 1996 and, in the same year, were inaugurated by then Archbishop of Milan Carlo Maria Martini. The central portal depicts the Stories of Mary’s Life, the Left of the Annunciation, and the Right of the Holy Family. At the center of the facade, at the central nave, the large circular rose window opens.

Internal

The inside of the church is Latin acrid, with three aisles and a deep aisle chorus.

The three aisles, three in each, are covered with cruciate convolutions and are divided by two rows of six-sided arches resting on red brick polystyle pillars. On the cruise, the tiburio-ottoman is raised, lit up Romanesque dates.

The frescoes on the side walls of the presbytery by Aldo Carpi de ‘Resmini (known especially for the cathedral windows) represent Resurrection and Crucifixion (1946), reflecting the master’s experience in the Nazi lagers.

In the right transept, in a rectangular apse, which is convulsed by barrel, is the modern baptistery. At the center of the elevated area, there is the baptismal font of Ercole Franz De Vecchi, marble of Carrara with bronze inserts depicting the Samaritan at the well, the Sacrifice of Isaac, the Heavenly Heaven and the Resurrection of Lazarus.

The presbytery occupies entirely the coronal space of the polygonal apse. The modern sacred furnishings that make it – the altar, the ambience and the seat – were made of marble and bronze in 2006 in the occasion of the 110 years of consecration of the church. The ancient altar, on the other hand, is in neo-Romanesque style, in polychrome marbles, with bas-reliefs on the pediment and lifts and reliefs of Leo Lodi moved in 2006 to the adjacent chapel of San Proto. The ancona welcomes the Trotsky of the Addicted, of Eugenio Cisterna, with a predella on a gold background.

To the right of the apse, opens the chapel of San Proto, built in 1933 to welcome the relics of the holy martyr and restored in 1984. The environment, with a Latin cross with a little protruding and absidesemicircular transept, has a modern, wooden furniture, and a large crucifix.

The beautiful statue in alabasterMater Misericordiae, the large marble Easter candlestick and the ever-marble statue dedicated to St. Anthony are by Leo Lodi. The statue of Santa Monica in coated terracotta is by Valerio Pilon.

Some frescoes were executed in 1946 by Aldo Carpi and Raffaele Albertella.

Pipe organ

On the chorus near the bottom wall of the left transept, the Tamburini canal organ was rebuilt in 1988, re-utilizing the sound of the previous instrument (1950, opus 286), in turn reforming the opus 36 instrument of 1909, originally behind the back of the central nave.

The mechanical, manual transmission and pedal, electric drive, registers and combinations have three keyboards of 61 notes each and a concave-radial pedal of 32 notes.
