The Church of Santa Maria Rossa in Crescenzago is another sacred building with very ancient origins, but little known to the general public. Located in the north-eastern outskirts of Milan, it was originally located in a small country village.

The construction of the Church of Santa Maria in Red Crescenzago, subject to arbitrary restoration several times, dates back at the end of the twelfth century, shortly after the establishment of the rectory of St. Mary of crescenzago.

The church overlooks a small square of a small street that has preserved the atmosphere of times gone by. The facade, as well as the whole church, is built with red bricks. As a whole rake, the facade possesses as decorative elements groups of colored ceramic bowls. The facade can not unfortunately be considered relevant in terms of history, as its present state is the result of a heavy restoration work carried out around 1922.

Inside, the church is characterized by a basilica plan with three naves (the middle one has a greater height). Devoid of the transept, the bottom has three semicircular apses. The building was erected in Lombard Romanesque style with a gable roof.

Recent renovations have made it possible to bring to light various frescoes of great value, particularly those of the greater apse, of the fourteenth century, with the blessing Christ in the center, those in the presbytery, dedicated to Mary and characterized by Byzantine influences, and those of the first left chapel, dedicated to St. Catherine. It must be said that originally the entire apse was covered with frescoes.
