The Diocesan Museum is one of the cultural centres of Milan: located in one of the most important monument of the city, it is characterized by the history, the location and the collections. It's close to the Darsena, the area near the historic Navigli, restored during EXPO and certainly among the most interesting areas in the city. It is located in the cloisters of S. Eustorgio, the complex which includes the Basilica, founded in the late Romanesque and the Domenican convent. The museum, inaugurated in 2001, develops in the second cloister, restored after being damaged in World War II. The museum's permanent collections, made up of about 1.000 works from the second to the twenty-first century, those closely connected to the Diocesi and the figure of St. Ambrogio and the art of Lucio Fontana. Conferences, dinners, concerts, shows and private events can be organized in the hall of the Arciconfraternita (250 square meters) and the enchanting cloister, which has a total space of over 2,000 square meters of which 600 of porch and 1,400 of well-kept lawn. The cloister is the ideal location for receptions and dinner, especially in summer as tables and furnishings interact with the sequence of double columns that support the arches of the porch, cleverly illuminated. In the cloister it’s possible to install a tensostructure in case of non optimal weather conditions. Any type of event, from ten to a thousand people, can be organised in a setting precious and exclusive, in a place full of great charm and culture, the bridge between past and present.
