San Giuseppe is a Baroque-style Roman Catholic church in Milan, region of Lombardy, Italy.

Construction was begun in 1607 and completed in 1630. The architect was Francesco Maria Richini.[1] The right side of the church overlooks Via Andegari, after a family with this name. It seems that the title of the street comes from the name of a family known as the "Andegardi" or "undegardi".
