I nodi della memoria.
Concezioni e pratiche della memoria nel periodo borromaico

The theme of memory is currently of great interest in different areas of the human sciences. We live in a historical time dominated by the hypertrophy of the present: the recognition of the importance and of the functions of memory can help us find a balanced relationship with both the past and the future and therefore to re-establish a more human experience of temporality in everyday life.

The other faces of the Ambrosiana

The most magical and ancient places of Milan: the ancient Forum where Constantine, St. Ambrose, St. Augustine and Theodosius walked, and the lower Church of Santo Sepolcro, built by the Crusaders… as well as a colossal statue of St. Charles Borromeo on Lake Maggiore; a Museum-Home at the Sacro Monte of Varese; a Foundation dedicated to the promotion of young artists: this is also the Ambrosiana!
