Church of San Nazaro in Brolo
The church was built by St. Ambrose starting from 382 on the road that connected Milan (then Mediolanum) to Rome. It was originally dedicated to the Apostles, and thus known as Basilica Apostolorum.
The University of Milan (Italian: Università degli Studi di Milano) is a higher education institution in Milan, Italy. It is one of the most important and largest universities in Europe.
Milan Cathedral (Italian: Duomo di Milano) is the cathedral of Milan, Italy. Dedicated to St Mary of the Nativity (Santa Maria Nascente), it is the seat of the Archbishop of Milan. The Gothic cathedral took nearly six centuries to complete. It is the largest church in Italy (the larger St. Peter's Basilica is in the State of Vatican City) and the fifth largest in the world.
Vittorio Emanuele II Gallery
The Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II is one of the world's oldest shopping mall. Housed within a four-story double arcade in central Milan, the Galleria is named after Victor Emmanuel II, the first king of the Kingdom of Italy. It was designed in 1861 and built by Giuseppe Mengoni between 1865 and 1877.
Theatre and Square Alla Scala
Piazza della Scala is named after the renowned Teatro alla Scala opera house; the building actually includes both the opera house and the Museo Teatrale alla Scala (La Scala Museum), dedicated to the history of La Scala and opera in general. On the opposite side of "La Scala", is the facade of Palazzo Marino, Milan's city hall. Most of the architecture of the square is due to architect Luca Beltrami. The centre of the square is marked by the monument of Leonardo da Vinci by sculptor Pietro Magni (1872).
Merchants Square or Piazza Mercanti or Merchants Square is the true center of Milan. It was created from the middle of the thirteenth century (it is therefore older than Milan Cathedral) with a rectangular plan, and it was originally greater than what it is now. There were six openings toward it, corrisponding to the six parts in which the city was divided. The surrounding streets were named after the various activities carried out.
The Borsa Italiana was established by Eugène de Beauharnais, viceroy of the Napoleonic Kingdom of Italy, through decrees dated 16 January and 6 February 1808. It is Italy's main stock exchange and is also informally known as Piazza Affari ("Business Square"), after the city square of Milan where its headquarters (the Palazzo Mezzanotte building) is located.
