The area
Address
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.

Cavour’s monument with a lover of sculptor
Jun 2021 • Solo
Next to the homonymous square there’s this beautiful monument dedicated to a protagonist of the Italian Risorgimento , made in 1865.
At the basement of the bronze sculpture there’s another bronze sculpture depicting a half-naked woman, the gossips of the time thought she was the lover of one of the sculptors.

The prelude...
Sep 2019
...or introduction to the vast park, Giardini Pubblici Indro Montanelli, beyond and to the northeast. It is situated on a small triangular plot of land, a garden that is rather unkept.

He may have been a statesman, but no one is listening to him now. Maybe if they cleaned up the garden.

Very famous statesman
Jan 2018 • Couples
Cavour was a famous statesman of Italy and was the first Prime Minister of Italy. He has streets and squares named after him. This is an imposing statue sited on the eponymous Piazza Cavour near the entrance to the Indro Montanelli park.
A female figure is seated at the base of the statue in the act of inscribing Cavour's name on the base.

An important statesman
Aug 2017 • Couples
The elegant bronze statue of the Count of Cavour, the first Italian prime minister and one of the most famous Italian politicians was designed by Odoardo Tabacchi in 1865. Antonio Tantardini is the author of the statue of History (signing the Cavour’s name on the granite base at his foot). It is a beautiful, well-placed monument of a very important statesman.
