The area
Neighborhood: Centro Storico
The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch expedition into a royal experience. Head to the rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.

The name and the statue didn't tell me anything, so I had to do some research. The man who means a lot to an Italian isn't well known for other nationalities. Now I know, that he was a great philosopher, writer, scientist, and leader during the Cinque Giornate of Milan when the Italians rebelled against the Habsburgs. This monument commemorates him who was so dedicated to the federal republic. The memorial is on Via Santa Margherita, surrounded by a flowerbed.

This monument to this learned man sits in an island, surrounded by plants at the junction of two roads. The statue shows him standing with a book in his right hand, with his right foot forward. The statue rests atop a pedestal, which has 2 bronze plaques affixed to it. One is an allegory to Liberty and the other shows him during the peace after the Five days of Milan. It was inaugurated on the 100th anniversary of his death in 1901.

This monument is better than some of the others I came across while walking around Milan. I will one day research these men and it will be more meaningful because I was actually there. Here Carlo Cattaneo is standing and the statue is imposing. If you are in the area check it out.

Important statesman and other great history write ups below, but not really eye catching. If walking by take a look but I wouldn’t seek it out
