Abstract

The Cloisters of Sant’Eustorgio are located in one of the most significant places for the Ambrosian Church. The ancient complex comprises the church of Sant’Eustorgio with the Museum of the Basilica, the early Christian burial ground and the Portinari Chapel, as well as the Carlo Maria Martini Diocesan Museum. Through many suggestive pictures, this volume traces the history of such an important monument for the city of Milan: from the Basilica, with its magnificent sculptures and paintings, to the stunning Portinari Chapel, a true gem of Lombard Renaissance. The most significant works at the Diocesan Museum tell the story of Lombard art through the ancient collections of Milanese Archbishops, as well as of knowledgeable local collectors.
