The Archdiocese of Milan (Latin: Archidioecesis Mediolanensis) is a metropolitan see of the Catholic Church in Italy. It has long maintained its own rite: the Ambrosian rite. It is led by the Archbishop of Milan who serves as metropolitan to the dioceses of Bergamo, Brescia, Como, Crema, Cremona, Lodi, Mantova, Pavia, and Vigevano.

The Church in Milan was established in the 1st century as a small diocese; according to legend by the Apostle Barnabas[1] on his way from Rome back to Cyprus. It was elevated to the rank of an archdiocese in the 4th century.
