Piazza del Duomo, 12, 20122 Milano, Italy

The gallery is located in the Palazzo Brera, a Baroque palace built over the remains of a Jesuit monastery that previously occupied the site. It was officially re-used officially in 1809 as an art gallery. Their purpose was to help the art students of the Accademia di Belle Arti, founded about 25 years ago, to learn more about the creation of art through the study of the masterpieces of other artists. Today, the gallery has a huge collection of these masterpieces. This is mainly due to Napoleon, who wanted to equate it with the French Louvre and therefore sent all the paintings he confiscated from here. Despite their fame, the gallery is usually not that full. When you come in winter, you can enjoy the pictures in peace.

The Middle Finger

Piazza degli Affari, Milan 20121, Italy
Designed by Maurizio Cattelan, this sculpture is a jewel of controversial art installed in front of the Italian Stock Exchange. If you look closely, you will notice that the other fingers are not bent but cut off. This is to symbolize the fingers of ordinary people who have been "cut off" by the entrepreneurs working there. The author most likely suggests that if they make a profit, the fraudsters divide it among themselves, whereas if they lose money, they divide the debt between small and other investors. The name of this statue is LOVE, which stands for Libertà, Odio, Vendetta, Eternità (freedom, hate, revenge and eternity). The author has never commented on the true meaning of this sculpture, but people assume that it could be a fascist greeting if it were not for the severed fingers. While it was only there for a few weeks, the local government decided to keep it there indefinitely. The nearest metro station to this sculpture is Cordusio (line 1).

It was built to celebrate tranquility, which is also symbolically represented by one of the statues at the top driving a carriage drawn by six horses. While originally commissioned by Napoleon to celebrate his victories, work on the Arch ended only on orders from Emperor Franz Josef I of Austria, Napoleon's adversary, and one of the men ultimately responsible for his defeat.
