  • Description: The house of Cambiago took shape in the 13th century as a community of women following the Augustinian Rule and affiliated with the Humiliati; in the 14th century it split into two monasteries that were not reunited until the 16th century; this reflected political divisions within the commune of Milan; the women of Cambiago had some spiritual ties with the Milanese Dominicans even before the split; much of the economy of these houses was dependent on the wool trade, proceeds of the nuns' work going into the purchase of real estate.
