Archeological news: in this little ancient church in the outskirts of Milan, called the Nosedo Church, have been found roman age tombs!

The simple plain exterior:



Hiddens an historical treasure:



In year 2013 it's still possible to find this kind of heritage!

Milan seems built and designed by the same architect respects your style and so it is a continuation, I hope that the new buildings even if not how are you, follow a parameter for that in future such uniformity is maintained as beautiful city.

thank you for your opinion, even if I would say that Milan's strenght point is the historical stratification that occurred along its 26 centuries of history. It has excellent monument and masterpieces from virtually everyone of his century of life, starting from the celtic street network around what used to be a sacred forest in San Fedele area, proceeding until roman era, imperial roman era, paleochristian era, romanesque era, gothic era, renaissance, baroque, neoclassicism, ecleptism, liberty/art nouveau, art deco, modern and now trendy brand new skyscrapers...this city has monument from each one of the styles mentioned above, and often very good ones. In no other city in the world (except Instanbul and Naples maybe?) you can find roman architecture and world class skyscrapers in a row. The problem is that with such a complete mix the city may seem somewhat lacking of coherence, but hopefully we're working on it!
