The Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II is considered with all rights Milan’s drawing room.
The Galleries were designed by Menegoni and realised in the 19th century. At present, the galleries host inside numerous luxury shops, seat of the international fashion mark Prada, various fast-food chains and expensive restaurants.
There are also numerous exhibitions, manifestations and public meetings taking place here every week with a rich calendar.
On the lateral floor under the main dome, a Bull, symbol of the city, is represented.
Tradition has it that the visitor must turn on himself leaning his right heel on the bulls’ genitals, something which will bring him good luck.
For the construction of the gallery a thousand workers were necessary, for a total seven hundred thousand work days! A real work of art open to visitors.
