Milan Cathedral and Galleria Vittoria Emmanuele II


   Milan Cathedral

 

In 1386, Archibishop Antonio da Saluzzo started construction. It took nearly six centuries to complete it.

  The statues look lonely.
 
 The statue seems to ponder the divine wisdom creating this world.
  Spikes everywhere.
 
   Galleria Vittorio Emmanuele II

Galleria Vittorio Emmanuele II is the first modern shopping mall, which comprises two square buildings plus an arch between the two. Shopping malls are copied throughout the world.
