Photographer's Note

Still inside the Morimondo Abbey, with a stitch of 2 images looking inside the cloister.
The Abbey was built in the 1134, but the cloister was built just in the middle of XVI Century, and the palace on the backside in the beginnings of the XVIII Century.
From the cloister there's the main door to enter in the Sala Capitolare, one of the first exemple of First Gothic style of the whole Europe.
The Sala Capitolare was a sort of HQ of the Abbot.
One of the most important Abbot of Morimondo was Giovanni de' Medici, then Pope Leo X (He is known primarily for his papal bull against Martin Luther and subsequent failure to stem the Protestant Reformation, which began during his reign when Martin Luther (1483–1546) published the 95 Theses and nailed them to the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg).
In this other image a view of the cloister from the top of the lateral building.
