In fifty stops

· ​A virtual guide to discover the lesser-known churches in Milan on the occasion of the Expo 2015 ·

On the occasion of the Expo 2015, the Archdiocese of Milan has organized a guided virtual tour of 50 churches built after 1950. In this way those who visit the city will be able to learn about these churches in a simple and immediate way.

Beginning on 1 May, visitors can use their cellphones to listen to the history of the church they are currently visiting. In addition to this virutal guide and the programme's website, the Archdiocese has also organized a concert series which will be held in places which aren't typically visited. The very existence of these 50 churches on the tour is due to the Archbishop of Milan, who became Paul VI who, in the middle of last century, launched a special plan in the diocese, which was then continued by his successors. The last leg of the tour will be the church dedicated to St Gianna Beretta Molla a Trezzano sul Naviglio, which will be consecrated on 25 April. The initiative aims at strengthening the bond between contemporary history and the roots of the city. (Silvia Guidi)
