Milan, Italy

Posted in Milan on 22 October 1976.
Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II

This is a glass-vaulted arcaded shopping street in Milan, or rather two intersecting streets forming a cross.  It links the opera house with the cathedral.  Where the two streets intersect, there is an octagonal dome.  The gallery is four stories high and contains many shops selling luxury goods, as well as restaurants, bars and cafés.  It looks absolutely amazing.  There are Passages in Paris but they have nothing on this splendour.

  1. Hi,
    My husband is from Milano and I lived there with him for almost a decade. The Galleria is one of my favourite places and I have a large print of it hanging in my living room.
