So much more than a shopping arcade, the neoclassical Galleria Vittorio Emanuele is a soaring iron-and-glass structure known locally as il salotto bueno, the city's fine drawing room. Shaped like a crucifix, it also marks the passeggiata (evening stroll) route from Piazza di Duomo to Piazza di Marino and the doors of La Scala.
