The church was built from 1500 to 1507, when Amadeo was at the climax of his fame. Amadeo had previously built the tambour of the Milan Cathedral and had been invited by Cardinal Ascanio Sforza, brother of Duke Ludovico Sforza, to direct the construction works in the Pavia Cathedral.
For Santa Maria di Canepanova, Amadeo adopted the so-called ad quadratum style, influenced by his master Guiniforte Solari, and which had already been used in the Cappella Colleoni in Bergamo. The church is centrally planned and has a cubic form, over which rises an octagonal tambour with four small bell towers at the corners.
The interior is decorated by Camillo Procaccini with works depicting the Women of the Bible.
