  • Festa del Perdono

Festa del Perdono or Annunciation is celebrated every year on March 25th, in even years in the Cathedral and in odd years at Ca' Granda.

  • Lunedì dell'angelo

On the Monday following Easter Sunday there is a fair, now generic but once dedicated to flowers and cage birds. According to tradition, on that day the children had to caress the column of Sant'Ambrogio to obtain protection against the evil of worms.
