Description

Milan is the city of the Madonnina and the Duomo with its soaring Gothic pinnacles, the city of the crowded, lively Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II and the prestigious Teatro alla Scala, the city of world-famous museums, from the Poldi Pezzoli to the extraordinary nucleus of institutions housed in that imposing fortress that was once the Castello Sforzesco. And again: Milan the city of basilicas, monasteries and convents, and churches like the marvelous Santa Maria delle Grazie, home of a masterpiece by Leonardo as fragile as it is precious: the celebrated and recently-restored Last Supper. But Milan is also a city of history and tradition, the city of Saint Ambrose, once its bishop and now its venerated patron saint, titular of the majestic Basilica di Sant'Ambrogio; and it is the city of the Visconti and Sforza families, of the Borromeo's and many other patrons of the arts, of the Pinacoteca Ambrosiana and the Pinacoteca di Brera, authentic treasure-chests filled with incomparable artistic jewels. What is more, Milan is the city of Leonardo and the Museo Nazionale della Scienza e della Tecnica, which takes its name form the great genius from Vinci; it is the city of the present and the future, open by its every nature to the new and the innovative as we see in the well-endowed Galleria d'Arte Moderna. Because Milan is the modern city par excellence: modern in its art, in its economy, in its new and spectacular urban planning- and the picturesque navigli. And it is the city of industry and work, of technology and progress. This is Milan. That Milan we will discover in this book, with its photographs, its texts, and its thousand curiosities. This illustrated large-format book on Milan from Bonechi will inspire you to plan your next vacation in Northern Italy and Milan, wil provide you with fond memories of your last trip to Milan or makes the perfect souvenir gift for those who stayed home and did not get a chance to see the treasures you will remember for a lifetime.
