Some pictures and images from great photographer Stefano "Gusme" Gusmeroli:

The 'Ciribiciaccola' bell tower of Abbey of Chiaravalle, a masterpiece built between 1135 and 1221, full of frescoes, a visit is very recommended:



Statues above the Duomo cathedral, and the majesty of the Alps behind them:



Piazza Castello and Foro Bonaparte, with the Duomo and the dome of the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele behind: many superficial tourist used to think that there were only those attractions in Milan: how wrong they were!

San Francesco d'Assisi al Fopponino church, near Santi Giovanni e Carlo al Fopponino church.

This one is from great architect Gi˛ Ponti:









the gorgeous interiors. In Milan art is really everywhere, inside palaces, inside churches and above the ground, You just can't escape from history and artistical inspiration.
