The horse sculpture is impressive in size and in details. The interesting fact is that Leonardo did design of the horse sculpture in the 15th century and the sculpture was created in the 20th century. We glad that we saw Leonardo's Horse in Milan. To get to the sculpture (a) take metro Red line to Lotto, go to the left... More

If you are in the area it is well worth a look, right next to the san siro stadium it is a very outstanding piece of art.

We were on a tour of Italy and visited Milan. One of our stops was to see this horse that was designed by Leonardo DaVinci. It is 24 feet tall and was impressive but was not made by Leonardo. He did design work on it but was not able to build it. A gentleman from Allentown, PA, USA took Leonardo's... More

If you are not a horse person this is a waste of time. Sculpture would have been more interesting if actually done by DaVinci. Unless you are already familiar with Milan's outskirts this horse is difficult to find and a long walk from the metro station. If you still want to see the horse, bring snacks as restaurants are difficult... More

In 1482 the Duke of Sforza commissionned the largest equine statue ever conceived, Leonardo worked on the project for 17 years but when the project was ready, a war prevented bronze - precious in warfare - from being used for statues. Nearly 500 years later, Charlie Dent decided that Leonardo and Italy should have The Horse , as a gesture... More

My wife is a show jumper and i am a farrier so know horses quite well, but both couldnt believe how anatomically perfect it is let alone the... More

I'm an artist and my husband is an architect. We obviously have learned quite a bit about Leonardo Da Vinci. We had NOT learned about Leonardo's Horse until my youngest daughter did a report on it in the 5th grade. Beautiful story but an even more beautiful sculpture. Yes, it's in a normal residential neighborhood (NOT the fashion district) and... More

Originally, made of Clay, this Bronze model is a replica. It is in cultural park, near San Siro, Football Stadium, Milan. We had to walk... More

the location is ugly, but the horse is impressive, and it's a good reconstruction of how the original monument by Leonardo da Vinci was.
