“I’ve always had an innate curiosity for everything…
The Internet has greatly facilitated and speeded up my thirst for knowledge.
Before the internet became in fact the main source of information for all my needs, to understand the news, events and the city that hosted me, to grasp the particularities and the most intriguing stories, I informed myself on magazines, TV, I asked the most varied people for information and news about that place, about that basilica, about how old that wall or that castle was.
Now you can directly search for this or that information that had intrigued me or information on that particular topic.
It was a very pleasant evolution that I welcomed with pleasure. Then I realized that there was the other side of the coin.
I realized that I could search and get anything on the internet, but that most of the information, the valuable ones, was not easy to find.
I understood that there was information manufactured directly by software, by algorithms programmed for this purpose and that where they could not find that information or answer to the question … They would have invented it.
Milan my magical city
I was interested in stories of the ancient city, what of the city had survived and what had been rebuilt, because in some cases there was talk of an imperial seat in Milan and precisely at the time when Constantine cleared Christianity from the persecutions that had characterized it for centuries and which traditions and customs had remained intact from before this period.
I wondered how it was possible that in the last 600 years the procession of the Three Kings had been organized without any interruption with such determination or why on top of the basilica of Sant’Eustorgio (which was the first Duomo in Milan) there was a comet instead of the Cross.
I realized that many people actually found themselves having the same curiosity. You know what?
Some of these people have gathered in an association based in the Basilica and have begun to collect and publicly give access to all this information, historical documents, photos and access to public events that put together give a picture that would seem almost magical if it were not that it is intertwined with the history of the city and that often manifests itself in documents, traditions, paintings, art and archaeological finds that start again from Milan in large part but that we find all over the world.
Stay up to date.
