Theft comes weeks after nearby relic heist21 March, 14:26
The painting, the value of which has not been released, was stolen from behind the altar at San Gregorio Magno, police said.
The work measured about 50 x 70 cm, or slightly less than 20 x 28 inches.
The theft comes a few weeks after a relic of St Anastasia was stolen from a different church in Milan.
Critics have complained that valuable works have been stolen from churches and even art galleries in Italy because of poor security.
