Lesson 7:


Milan is a cultural, modern, and lively city that is rich in beauty and artistic masterpieces. It is the second-largest city in Italy. The Cathedral, with its luminous, marble façade and late-Gothic style, is its monumental symbol. From its heights, visitors can enjoy a unique panoramic view dominated by the church’s 135 pinnacles pointing towards the sky and reigning over the entire city.

In the heart of the city, is the Royal Palace, the headquarters of the Local Government of Milan. Next to the palace is the modern 20th Century Museum, which mostly contains Italian artworks from the 1900s. Close by, another of the city’s well-known icons, the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II: a pedestrian street intersection covered by glass-vaulted arcades. The gallery hosts historic restaurants, bars and fashion boutiques, as well as its stylish mosaic flooring.

Milan also has an important and long-standing tradition: theatre. For centuries, some of its theatres and opera houses have hosted performances of some of the best opera singers, composers, musicians, dancers, playwrights and actors. The most famous theatre is La Scala: visitors can experience superb performances on stage and the exquisite atmosphere of Milan’s musical jewel.
