Strolling in the time of King Umberto I

An itinerary starting from piazza Cordusio sets out to draw participants' attention to the numerous buildings constructed in Milan at the end of the 1800s. Along via Dante and in Piazza Castello one notes a consistent architectural style, inspired by the past while at the same time meeting contemporary commercial needs. 

After the Castle, we continue down via XX Settembre, the principal axis of one of the most exclusive neighbourhoods in town. In this area we can admire the elegant facades of the buildings, and especially the Liberty-inspired facades by Ulisse Stacchini, most well known in Milan for being the architect who designed the Milano Centrale railway station. We conclude this fascinating walking tour in piazza Niccolò Tommaseo, another entirely nineteenth-century square, characterized by towered villas and the impressive Neo-Baroque facade of the church of Santa Maria Segreta.
