History

Dating back at least to 1500, this maket is one of Milan's oldest traditions still alive. Legend says that in 1511, the Franciscan friars who lived next to the Sant'Angelo convent were assaulted by bandits. Their prayers were answered, and an armed angel came down from the heavens to protect the brothers. This tradition is celebrated with the market.
