Photographer's Note

It is not possible not to take a photo of the magnificent glass dome of the Gallerio Vittorio Emanuele II when you visit Milan. Here is one from my POV.

The Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II is the oldest shopping mall in Italy, housed within a four-storey double arcade in central Milan. The Galleria is named after Vittorio Emanuele II, the first king of the Kingdom of Italy. It was originally designed in 1861 and built by Giuseppe Mengoni between 1865 and 1877. The structure is formed by two glass-vaulted arcades intersecting in an octagon covering the street connecting Piazza del Duomo to Piazza della Scala The central octagonal space is topped with a glass dome.
