I'm not someone who really appreciates modern art, I prefer traditional art, architecture and like the historical sights in a city. Milano as a city has a lot of history and some great sights. In this historical city is this bit of modern art, the significance of which some have questioned. I see the significance but didn't really like it.... More

Right at the exit of the subway station of Cadorna. A simple but strange sculptural work that frankly and I personally never understood. Needle and thread woven, a giant colorful sculpture that frankly has always aroused curiosity in me about its meaning. At first glance it's quite impressive.

Not much to say about this monument,representing an sewing needle with a bright colored line.Another distictinct piece is representing an assembly on a colored wire. Situated in Piazza Cadorna,in front of the homonym train station.The starting point if you want to go to Como.

Not really an attraction to visit but an interesting sculpture that you find as you wonder round the Piazzale Cardona.

After getting to the other side of the Castello Sforzesco, I saw the "Ago, Filo e Nodo" or "Needle, Thread and Knot" and decided to have a look - I was intrigued. It was only a short (5/10 minute) walk away from the Castello Sforzesco, in an area that has buskers and some shops/restaurants. It was cool to look at... More

Staying in Centro Storico

Neighborhood Profile
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.
