The area
Neighborhood: Stazione Centrale
Central Station represents a bridge towards the future. Impressive skyscrapers and new age buildings stretch the skyline with the majestic Unicredit Tower cutting through. Surrounding it are large towers that define Piazza Gae Aulenti, where the fountain and the Monumento Trombe leave one breathless. A famous building of the district is the Vertical Forest, where the innovative materials and trees planted on the terraces are a unique mix of nature and man-made construction. In the district, there is the Monumental Cemetery, known for its antique tombs with sculptures portraying angels of commemorative scenes many will find touching.

Huge plaza with that monument. Nothing extremely special, but possible to sit and rest. Also, it is possible to have photo next to monument.

It is a large White Apple when you leave the Milano train station. I just looked at it while I was rushing to my hotel.

It is a huge apple sculpture in front of the Milano Centrale Railway Station. The apple means the nature, the bite of the apple artificial means.

Just placed in the piazza della Repubblica in front of the central station of Milan this monument is called the "reintegrated apple" mela reintegrata made by the artist Michelangelo Pistoletto in 2015 seems to have the intention to restore the first bite given by Eva to the apple in the Paradise before being kicked out from the Paradise. The bite was restored with a steel made suture like the one used today in the surgery. This monument is a nice surprise out of the train station and offer a smile thinking just walking there.

Outside the Milano Centrale train station the Apple made whole again is a symbolic work opening itself up to the world, I am happy to go along with that.

A restored first bite of the apple.

This white apple is rather incongruous placed in the piazza outside the Central train station in Milan.

It is a popular photo opportunity.

This work of art by Michaelangelo Pistoletto is right outside the very busy Milan Central Train Station so you can easily spot it.

The plaza is a great place to sit/rest/let kids play while waiting for a train connection or a schedule since it is just right outside the station which is very busy inside/ crowded in the platform area.

A strange sculpture placed in a clear location, you can't miss it! It almost looks like an apple (like the iPhone) but with the bite sown back onto it.

Interesting piece of arts; 8 meters tall and weights eleven tons. Very central location, can’t be missed. No sure what the message is this apple tries to communicate.
