The Old Vineyards

Old Vineyards

An old print realized in 1656 by Federico Agnelli on commission of Card. Alfonso Litta, the archbishop of Milan represents in detail all the area comprised between Sacro Monte and Santa Maria Maggiore. The black and white paper documents the first conformation of the Monastery and the presence of wide vineyards on the slopes of Sacro Monte.

To notice are certainly the representations of the cultivated fields, of the stone quarries, of the actual First Chapel, of the vegetable garden, of the cellar and of the wine press.
