The run-up to Saint Ambrose starts with Chiostro in Fiera

Milan welcomes the fall with three days dedicated to craftsmanship and art: from 5 to 7 October the Saint Eustorgio Cloisters will host the 19th edition of “Chiostro in fiera”, a fine craftsmanship fair that raises funds for the development of cultural and educational projects by the Diocesan Museum.

The event is a great chance to meet and exchange stories and useful advice on art and high craftsmanship.

This year, the spotlight is on women who make textiles, home decor items, jewelry, clothes, shoes, scarves, bags and many more fine and unique artisanal products by hand.

The three-day program also includes events dedicated to art: for example the “Lezione davanti al Capolavoro” (“Lesson in front of a Masterpiece”), presenting one of the wonders in the permanent collection – the 4th-century Reliquary chasse of Saint Nazarius – to a comfortably seated audience, in a space prepared for the occasion.

The famous “White Via Crucis” by Lucio Fontana will be showcased as well, next to the sketches this absolute genius of Italian 20th-century art had submitted for the fifth Door of the Duomo in Milan.
