Milan Art
Arte Milano

The name Milano comes from 'Mediolanum', probably referring to the ancient Celtic name Midland, or, according to other opinions, to a bas-relief featuring a sow half covered by wool (lana) that means “halfwoollen” (mezzalana) and then Mediolanum.

Although Milan is often thought as the capital of fashion and therefore for its activity and business supremacy, the endless cultural attractions and historical witnesses of Milan are often forgotten. In the historical centre, but not only there, in any place, you will find out a monument, a square, a church to stare at.

Maria delle Grazie, has seen several museum centres springing up: the peculiarity of the museum organization of Milan is today underlined by the variety and capillarity of the public and private collections, belonging to the State, the town, the Church or foundations.
