Rotonda della Besana

Local nameRotonda della Besana
LocationGuastalla, Milan, Italy

The Rotonda della Besana is a late baroque building complex and former cemetery in Milan, Italy, built between 1695 and 1732 and located close to the city center. The complex comprises a lobate hectagonal colonnade portico enclosing a garden and the deconsacrated church of San Michele ai Sepolcri. The portico was designed by architects Francesco Croce and Carlo Raffaello Raffagno, while the church was designed by Attilio Arrigoni. Although originally a cemetery, over time the Rotonda has been adapted for a number of other uses; today, it is a leisure area and a venue for cultural events.

The complex covers an overall area of 7,100 m² and owes its current name to its location, at number 15 of Via Enrico Besana.
