The Victoria and Albert Museum of London collection features a famous drawing of the project for the façade of a church. It is catalogued as “Design for the façade of the Church of Santa Maria presso San Celso, Milan”, and dated 1570. It is attributed to “Galeazzo Perugino”. If on the one hand the subject has been unanimously recognized as exact, the date and the attribution have not, and this issue has sparked an interesting debate among scholars of Milanese and Italian architecture of the Cinquecento. Published for the first time by Wolfgang Lotz, the drawing was initially attributed to Cristoforo Lombardo, and further studies supported this thesis. Redrawings of the plans and sections, and 3D reconstructions of the project have been recreated; they can be helpful tools in the continuing studies on it and can suggest new interpretations. The project reveals some incongruences, especially in terms of the correspondence between the façade and internal space. Through the analysis of the drawing, it is possible to discern two different “souls” in it: a more expressive and decorative one, and a more classical and puristic one. This reinforces the hypothesis that the drawing had been made by Cristoforo Lombardo, who had been the protagonist of a complex transition phase in the Milanese architectural scene after Bramante’s departure from the city.
