Art exhibitions and spirituality meetings, concerts and services for people in need: all this describes San Fedele in Milan, a reality of the Society of Jesus known at local and national levels as an open space for cultural and artistic discussions, for socio-political reflection, for profound spiritual experience and for the practice of solidarity and justice. The Jesuits and lay people who work here, keeping alive the legacy of Ignatius of Loyola and following the style of Carlo Maria Martini, promote events where questions concerning the men and women of today are fully addressed. A short clip is being produced in Italian and English to promote this activity.

Ever since the arrival of the Jesuits after the Second World War (1948), the Cultural Centre and the San Fedele Gallery have been - together with the Parish - the nucleus of San Fedele, with prospects of development within artistic, musical and cinematographic fields. Since 1950, this nucleus has been flanked by Aggiornamenti Sociali, a magazine and think tank that delves into the most important social, political and ecclesiastical issues, from the perspective of the Christian faith and justice. Since 1994, these realities have merged into the San Fedele Cultural Foundation, now considered a leading cultural centre in Milan and Italy.

The most recent innovative event took place in 2015, when San Fedele Museum was founded – Here, art and faith programs are organised and the public can enjoy the extraordinary artistic heritage of the Foundation which coordinates and supports the network of the present associations working directly with the civil society of Milan. Service is offered to prisoners (Sesta Opera), in the field of health and immigration (Assistenza Sanitaria) and in the formation of young couples (Centro Giovani Coppie). It also hosts and collaborates with the Carlo Maria Martini Foundation and the Jesuit Education Foundation. Info www.sanfedele.net
