A plaque commemorating Constantine’s edict on religious freedom is in the Palazzo San Giorgio in a church on via Torino which was built on the ruins of an ancient imperial palace in Milan. Oasis will have its headquarters in Milan; the foundation was founded in Venice in 2004 by Cardinal Angelo Scola. The objective is to promote an understanding between Christians and Muslims, to create spaces for dialogue, and to document the cultural importance that Christianity has had in the history of Islam. And vice versa, a hot topic in Milan, the city where the relationship between Christians and Muslims is not always easy. The opening took place on Monday, April 29 at 6:30pm in Piazza San Giorgio.
