Pinsteps. Piazza Della Scala, Milan
Places to visit in Milan. Languages: en, he, ru

We went to the square in front of the Teatro La Scala from the most common side. That is the way most tourists come to this square from the Dome Cathedral. In the middle of the square is a monument. It depicts a sullen man who, as it were, bowed his head in front of the most famous theater in Europe. This is a monument of Leonardo Davinci. It was his famous Last Supper that made Milan one of the most famous museum cities in the world. The square, like the monument and the whole modern center of Milan, is the creation of the architect Luca Beltrami and the sculptor Pietro Magni. They were both born in Milan, they knew the center of art and culture of the 19th century, Paris, and both supported Garibaldi in creating a new country - a new Italy. If you look closely, Leonardo’s face is not so gloomy. He is thoughtful and proud. Just like the awakening of Italian national self-determination in the nineteenth century. Like ancient symbols, which from now on are not an impersonal world heritage, but a heritage that has a nation - the Italians.
