Photographer's Note

Via Dante is an important and elegant pedestrian street in central Milan, Italy, connecting Piazzale Cordusio and Largo Cairoli. It is very near to Castello Sforzesco (seen here in the background) and is named after the Florentine poet Dante Alighieri. It is contains several theatres and a multitude of shops, restaurants, cafés, bars. As can be seen here, outside eating is available during the season.

The street is lined by numerous fine buildings, mainly from the 18th and 19th centuries, including Piccolo Teatro, (literally "small theatre").

Until 1958, it maintained several transport links including a tramway line; the street has been largely pedestrianised since 1996.
