Tour description provided by Viator

Go hunting for sculptures in the streets of Milan. Plastic forms of mysterious elegance dominated the squares and open spaces of all of Milan. This tour will give you an unusual opportunity to observe works and artists in the streets and squares of Milan, but also an opportunity to tell how public art has changed in the last two hundred years. With the twentieth century, the meanings have changed, as the idea of the square as a public place has changed and politicians, intellectuals or heroes proud of the Risorgimento have added monuments that are less and less easy to understand, often obscure references to the complexity of our time. An example is the obscure Mère Ubu in front of the Palazzo del Senato, the monument to the Minguzzi Carabinieri weapon in Piazza Diaz, the Pomodoro Sole in Piazza Meda or the "invisible" sculptures of the Consagra in via Mercanti, up to -Discussed Cattelan's middle finger in Piazza Affari, a clear sign of a provocation.

Rectangular in shape, with an overall area of 17,000 m2 (about 183,000 sq ft), the piazza includes some of the most important buildings of Milan (and Italy in general), as well some of the most prestigious commercial activities, and it is by far the foremost tourist attraction of the city.Pass By: Edificio per uffici di Piazza Meda, Milan, LombardyPiazza Filippo Meda20121 Milano MPass By: Monumento Ai Carabinieri, Milan, Lombardymonumento ai carabinieriPass By: Palazzo del Senato, Milan, LombardyThe Palazzo del Senato is a Baroque architecture palace in central Milan.
