Monumental Cemetery of Milan Guided Tour

The Monumental Cemetery of Milan is not just a cemetery, but a genuine open-air museum. Designed by the architect Carlo Maciachini in 1864, it is characterised by an eclectic style, harmonising Byzantine and Gothic elements with a prevalence of the Romanesque style. If you really want to get to know Milan, visiting the Cimitero Monumentale is a must. All those people who played a role in the city's history rest inside it, from Manzoni to Toscanini, from Hayez to Marinetti, from Alda Merini to Giorgio Gaber. The cemetery is an ideal place to discover the evolution of Milan's artistic trends between the XIX and XX century. During the tour, your expert guide will give you an artistic/historical introduction on the cemetery, then you'll visit the Famedio and the crematory temple, one of the first ones to be built in Europe. You will also be able to discover the history of about 15 selected graves, that either have artistic significance or are the final resting place of famous people.

Beneath the scarlet sky of Milan - a day in the footsteps of Pino Lella

The life of Pino Lella, only recently revealed and narrated in the book "Beneath a scarlet sky", by the American writer Mark Sullivan, sounds like the script of a war movie. Yet it is all true. With our tour, you will walk in the footsteps of this Italian hero during the most dramatic years of Milan, following his adventures in the wounded city occupied by the Nazis. With us, you will visit some of the most fascinating highlights of Milan: the imposing cathedral, Duomo, where the body of cardinal Schuster, a key figure for Pino, was buried; the medieval Sforza Castle, in whose courtyards many people suffered a horrible death; the Monumental Cemetery, an open air museum of funerary art; the Memorial of Shoah, an emotional testament to the persecution of the Jews; piazzale Loreto, home of the most tragic memories of the city. We will end the tour on a happy note: with a drink at Diana Hotel, where Pino celebrated the end of the Nazi occupation. Some public transport will be used.

Tasting Milano _ Architecture, Design & Food

Chances to organize a TAILOR-MADE TOUR in Milan; architecture, aesthetics points of view enriched with anecdotes about design or urban history of the city and a "food pit-stop" somewhere like taverns, clubs or similar, always trying to offer a taste of "a pure Amarcord style" of italian design. The options are different, the city offers many ideas and adapts to different moods; I would like to understand your expectations in time so that a suitable experience can be tailor-made. But alternatively I can take care of everything. I am an architect, a photographer and a traveller and I have a strong passion for private courtyards, secluded streets, gardens, improvised moments of light, spaces that are more or less describable but accessible. Milan is rich in treasures.. and if you wish you can have some shopping meanwhile!
