The ‘Chapel of the ballet dancers’ houses an installation of ex-voto offerings by Mimmo Paladino, a Transavantgarde (Neo-expressionist) artist, alongside works by Sean Shanahan.
The Chapel owes its name to the ballerinas from Teatro alla Scala, who until the1980s used to leave flowers here in front of the 14th-century fresco of the Madonna of the milk
on the night of their debut.
Of great interest along this section of the tour are also the imposing Sacristy
, carved in wood by the Taurino brothers in the 17th century, and two works found in the vestibule to the Sacristy: The Crowning of the Virgin
Mary by Ambrogio Figino
and the Transfiguration of Jesus
by Bernardino Campi.
