The cathedral of Milan holds over six centuries of history and the entire building is made of pink-hued white marble that comes from the quarries of Candoglia.
The Terraces on the Roof of the Cathedral are constructed of Candoglia marble too. It presented a unique innovation in the construction of cathedrals roofs. On 8,000 m² surface you can admire at close range the 135 tops.
You can go by stairs or elevator to the top.
When you reached there, you have different view of Milan including Italian and Swiss Alps if the weather was good.
Here you can see the "New Milan" behind one of more then 3,400 statues.

I like the mix of old and modern architecture. Great POV, what a pity that the sky was grey!
All the best,

Hi! Great urban and architecture picture where the highlights are the chosen pov, vertical format, soft colors and composition! Cheers, Neyvan

bella contrapposizione tra l'antica statua e le nuove architetture che si estendono sulla città.
Una bella idea ben realizzata.

The theme of this shot is quite interesting : Tradition vs modernity, history vs modern days. Quite nice as a matter of fact.
The framing and the composition are nicely balanced.

A good contrast of the old and the new, with shiny new buildings in the background. Nice light on the buildings.

nice idea and very original POV. I like the concept of contrasting old and modern architecture - it creates a lot of interest for me. Good proportions and accurate DOF. Very natural and well balanced colors.
Thanks for sharing
