Piazza de Castello: Beauty in Symmetry (Sophisticated Milan Series 14)

Piazza de Castello
Beauty in Symmetry
Sophisticated Milan Series 14

Just in front of Castello Sforzesco is
the semi-circular Piazza de Castello-

…surrounded by a radial street layout of neoclassical 
buildings built symmetrically on each side of the piazza.

The centerpiece of Piazza de Castello is a very
beautiful fountain- the Fontana di Piazza Castello.

It was built in 1936 for the visit of Mussolini,
and also called wedding cake for its shape.

The Piazza de Castello’s organized symmetry,

...serves as a beautiful prelude-

... to the priceless treasures housed 
at the massive Castello Sforzesco.
