Tradition tells us that Milan’s conversion to Christianity began with St. Barnabus from what is now the church of Sant’Eustorgio. The complex is also renowned for the presence (today, only partial) of relics held to be of the Three Magi, which made the church particularly dear to the city’s devoted. With time, the church became the object of interest of many noble Milanese families, who built and decorated side chapels, such as the Portinari Chapel, one of the Milanese spaces that best preserves its original Renaissance decoration, here the work of Vincenzo Foppa and of the Tuscan Giovanni di Balduccio of Pisa.
