Unexpected treasure inside Sant’Ambrogio
Do you know what the nuggets of light created in the bowels of the Earth are? What if we told you they are also known as the stars of the Earth? They are precious stones, so-called in ancient times. And behind its tidy, almost austere brick façade, the Basilica of Sant’Ambrogio in Milan holds a masterpiece of ninth-century Carolingian goldsmithing and stars of the Earth: the golden altar. Embellished with stones and tiles embossed in gold, it contains the sarcophagus holding the relics of saints Ambrogio, Gervasio, and Protasio. Let’s continue the discovery on a golden itinerary through the museum, which houses monstrances and altar panels and takes us to the dome of San Vittore in Ciel d'Oro
