From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Lorenzo Binago (1554 - 1629) was a prominent Late Mannerist/ Early Baroque architect in Milan. He was by vocation, also a Barnabite monk.

One of his pupils was the future architect Francesco Maria Richini. His major work is the influential church of Sant'Alessandro in Zebedia, begun in 1601. The bell-towers to this church are a late addition.
