Borletti Chapel, Monumental Cemetery

1929-1931 Milan

Client
Borletti

Participant
Libero Andreotti

This is a small work, one of Ponti's favourites. He described it as his first step away from an architecture d'apres I 'architecture. He liked the two angels on the facade, a high relief by Libero Andreotti. The building is faced, inside and out, with marble; bronze doors, travertine altar, gold mosaic ceiling.
