IL MONUMENTALE

Some people get bored in Milan (I have no idea  how it is possible) and don’t know what to do and where to go. I would suggest to visit open air museum, which is the Monumental Cemetery of Milan.

This place is really impressive, espessialy if you go there in dark rainy day, but I had no depressive feelings about, maybe because I’ve been there in a nice a sunny day.

There are so many different and beautiful sculptures, so it’s almost impossible sometimes to consider as a cemetry!

What a piece of work is a man, how noble in reason, how infinite in faculties, in form and moving how express and admirable, in action how like an angel, in apprehension how like a god. William Shakespeare

If you are interested to visit, you need to know that they close the gates 30 minutes prior to closing time and Monday is a day off. Opening hours from 8 a.m. till 6 p.m. For me less than 1 hour was enough, but I’d like to come back.
