Milan is beautiful also because of its understatement: it is made of secret gardens and courtyards and so the city becomes magic.
Wander the narrow streets of the historic Milan and among the wonderful jewels which can be found in Milan, you will bump into an unexpected place: Casa Ucelli di Nemi, at number 5 in via cappuccio.
The fifteenth-century cloister with double loggia, amazingly simple, is the last track of the Santa Maria Maddalena al Cerchio, a Monastery of the "Umiliate" order. Carla and Guido Ucelli, founders of the Museum of Science, bought it in 1914, saving it from destruction and restored it with care and attention.
The charm of this special place continues going on the back of the building where you will discover gardens with old trees, remnants of the great monastic gardens that occupied the area until 1700. A delicate and poetic gift for the Self.
