Traditional Ambrosian Rite is the form of the Ambrosian Rite used before the changes that followed the Second Vatican Council and the Liturgical Movement.
The Ambrosian Rite is a Latin Catholic liturgical Western Rite used in the area of Milan.
Nowadays the Traditional Ambrosian Rite is mainly used on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation in the church of San Rocco al Gentilino in Milan, using the Ambrosian Missal of 1954, as permitted by Cardinal Archbishop of Milan Carlo Maria Martini on 31 July 1985. Another celebration on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation was authorized from 18 October 2008 onward in the town of Legnano. The Traditional Ambrosian Rite Mass may be said according to the Motu Proprio "Summorum Pontificum" thus any permissions allowing the above mentioned Masses should be considered obsolete for such permissions from the bishop are no longer required.
