From outside you’d never guess what the Rotonda della Besana really is. Surrounded by a perimeter of bricks hiding its inner interior, it was designed at the beginning of the 18th century as a cemetery for the nearby Ospedale Maggiore (Main Hospital).

Along the years it has been used as a barrack, a barn, a warehouse and today is a public garden and museum. Its unmistakable shape (go and find it on the artwork of our instameet!) today includes the deconsecrated Church of San Michele ai Nuovi Sepolcri, which was turned into the children’s museum (Museo dei Bambini).
