- Historic Abbys in Milan:
There are many historic Abbys of Cystercian, Umiliati and Olivetani orders, built between 12th and13th
centuries, that played important roles
in Milan's history.
Located in the subbarban zone, they have maintained the Roman and Gothic characteristics
of the original buildings.
Inside the monastic complex one can find a large church, once completely covered by
beautiful frescos by Lombard artists. Many do still remain today, well-preserved
closters sorrunded by loggias, and
agricultural courtyard with barns and stables.
The Museum Science and Technology,
one of the most important museums in the world, contains 28 individual galleries dedicated
to all aspects of science and technology.
It contains a spectacular collection of the technical inventions of Leonardo da Vinci.
Some of the wooden models have been reconstructed for the first time in 1990's by local Milanese
artists using original Leonardo
drawings and computer stimulations. These can be seen working and they give
outstanding insight into creative power of his mind.
- Art and Architecture
Your personal guide you will walk with you through a unique collection of
Milan art that reaches back over the centuries to the early Renaissance.
It is here that you can admire Leonardo's frescoes, which
have been restored to their original glory.
- Christian heritage:
Churches are monuments, religious buildings of great importance not only for art,
history or sacred Christian architecture but also for the continuation of social events,
traditions and development of religious thinking. The artifacts (frescos, paintings, furnitures,
silver and gold utencils) used during religious celebrations and
collected over the centuries bring us enormous insight into how
people lived, worked, dressed and celebrated holidays, sacraments and funerals
- Roman roots of Milan
There is not much left from the Roman days of Milan because the stones of Roman
bulidings were scavenged and used to
built later buildings.
The remains of Roman buildings, however, are claerly visible in the construction or churches,
palaces or public buildings.
Milan's Roman amphitheatre, built between the first and second centuries B.C.,
is one of the most imposing buildings built by the Romans.
During festivals and special events around 35,000 people came
together to watch Gladiators, wild animal fights
or other bloody spectacles so admired by the ancient citizens.
Milan's Public Gardens, covering 160,000 square meters, were
built in typical Italian style with inseparable small lake stocked with geese and fish and
a hill of faux rock, gardens with many valuable statues, fountains,
arches, gazebos, fake ruins and other elements of garden
architecture worth seeing. In a summer many of the parks host classical music
concerts and select opera performances.
