A day in Milan: San Maurizio

The Church of San Maurizio is some kind of Milan's own "Sistine Chapel", with almost 4000 square meters of renovated frescoes in the Benedectine Monastery, painted by some of Milan's and Lombardy's most famous 16th-century artists, like Bernardino Luini. Discover the history of the Abbess who led the Monastry and its wide religious community and what does Leonardo Da Vinci have to do with all that.
