This monument stands in tribute to Giuseppe Parini, a 19th century Neoclassical poet during the Italian Enlightenment. I can’t say I know much about Italian poetry, but he must have been good as he occupied several prominent positions Literary academies in Milan and Rome. The monument is a bronze sculpture of Parini dressed as a 19th century gentleman, but much of his clothing is hidden underneath a toga that he is wearing around the shoulder and waist, and held up with his right arm. The sculpture is okay. It’s located in a prominent location on Piazza Cordusio, close to the Duomo di Milano.

In Piazza Cordusio you will find the statue of poet and satirist Giuseppe Parini. I doubt many people who live in Milan know who he is. Given the area was a traditional financial centre, a statue of a satirist would not be the first thing to spring to my mind.

When I headed to the old Post building in Piazza Cordusio, I noticed a rather Impressive statue. Out of curiosity, I went closer to have a proper look, but sadly I have to confess, that the name, Giuseppe Parini, didn't ring the bell to me. Probably if I would be Italian I would know about him, but I was born in Hungary, and I think, not too many Italian would know about for example Tompa Mihály. Now I already learned that he was a writer and a poet, and most probably famous in his homeland. With its central position, the statue attracts the attention and fills up the quite big empty piazza. It isn't a must.

You will likely walk past this statue if you are heading to The Duomo. It's not an area that people congregate, though, it is surrounded by high-end shopping. Compared to the Vittorio Emanuele II monument, this is almost boring unless you enjoy poetry and know who Giuseppe Parini was - I don't.

This statue stands in Piazza Cordusio, a short distance from the Duomo Milano. It is a rather large monument. The bronze figure rests atop a marble plinth, with two curved stone railings to both side and a wrought iron fence completing the ellipse. It was inaugurated in 1899 on the centenary of his death.
