Basilica of St. Ambrose – The four chessboards

0
At the walls of Basilica of St. Ambrose you can see something bizarre: four chessboards. Two of 7x7 squares are on the left wall, the others of 8x8 squares are on the façade between two columns and at the nartece. The meaning? Nobody knows. Somebody claims that they were made by Templars, famous for their secret codes difficult to break, who stayed at the Basilica for some time.
