Body and Soul

December 30, 2021

A few days ago my son and I had contact with a Covid19 positive person and were booked a test at a large Hospital, Ospedale San Carlo di Milano.

We were left in a queue for about 4 hours and after being tested we had to wait another two hours for the result, standing outside by 5°Celsius, which is not too bad for the period.

What is most important, thank God we tested negative and could get back home with the happy news.

Before driving back home we decided to visit the Hospital’s Chapel, designed by Giò Ponti in the early Sixties as part of the Complex.

The Chapel is impressive, for its design, dimension, and, in this particular occasion, quiet emptyness.

Despite the need for maintenance, the Church is very welcoming, suggesting the Hospital has fewer problems taking care of the souls of its community members, rather than their bodies.
