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.

If Carlo Porta would be able to see his statue, probably would be satisfied with the placement. Trees, shrubs, and churches are surrounding the poet who wrote his works in the Milanese dialect. As I looked at the statue's face, I found it so characteristic that I'm not sure it's not a caricature? To make this judgment, I need to know what Carlo Porta looked like? Since he mainly wrote satires, it is possible that the sculptor somehow tried to make a hint about Carlo Porta's character.
God gave the poet talent but didn't a long life. He passed away when he was 46 years old.
