Pinsteps. Needle, Thread and Knot, Milan
Places to visit in Milan. Languages: en, he, ru

In the year 2000, this part of the city was touched by the hand of modernity. In front of you is a monument called the Needle Thread and Knot. It has a lot of symbolism. The thread curving around the needle resembles a blue snake - depicted on the coat of arms of the Visconti clan - an old ducal clan that laid the foundation for Milanese statehood. The needle is a symbol of the diving and rising metro that permeates the entire city. Three colors of threads - three metro lines, each marked with its own color. The theme of cutting and sewing is a tribute to Milan's world-famous fashion and style, and the location of the monument tells us that we are close to the famous train station of the city, which we will talk about at the end of the walk.
