Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The Milanese basilica of San Simpliciano is one of the most fascinating and best preserved monuments in the city. The presence of intricate construction phases, mainly dated in the late IV-XII century range, configures it as a real program of late ancient and medieval ecclesiastical architecture. Regarding the construction sequence, whose early Christian walls highlighted by Wart Arslan in the middle of the last century are preserved for over twenty meters in height, the most enigmatic aspect is perhaps constituted by the division into naves of the large longitudinal hall, conceived in the project initial as a large open space flooded with light from the perimeter windows. The contribution focuses precisely in this direction and wants to relate the old studies, as well as the scarce documentary evidence and the findings of sporadic materials, to the new data that emerged from the analysis of the vestments of the pillars and the wall structures preserved in the attic that seem to converge towards the attribution of the intervention to the Longobard royal client.
