The parish of San Martino in Greco, Milan, accompanied by the priest Don Giuliano Savina, visited the Al-Wahid Mosque of Via Giuseppe Meda 9, Milan, directed by imam Yahya Pallavicini, president of the Italian COREIS (Religious Islamic Community). Imam Yahya Pallavicini introduced them to the sacred space of the Mosque and gave a great insight into Islam as a religion. After this introduction, Catholic believers had the possibility to ask questions and receive from the Imam and from different members of the Muslim community extensive answers about Islam.

In the past, the Islamic community was welcomed at the parish of San Martino in Greco during a series of meetings dedicated to Patriarch Abraham, Ibrahim in the Qur’an, where the reading of verses and the reflections by Imam Yahya Pallavicini alternated with a musical performance of the Sukun Ensemble.
