Milan, Italy 20123


La Borsa di Milano è l'unica borsa in Italia ed è sempre stata la borsa più importante del Paese anche quando erano presentiin ordine cronologicole borse di Venezia (1630), Trieste (1775) e la Borsa di Roma (1802). Oggi a Milano ha sede Borsa Italiana, la società che si occupa della gestione e funzionamento del mercato finanziario italiano.StoriaDalla nascita ai primi 50 anniLa borsa valori di Milano è nata nel 1808 per volontà del napoleonico viceré del Regno d'Italia Eugenio di Beauharnais e venne inizialmente collocata presso il Palazzo del Monte di Pietà. Sebbene le contrattazioni fossero ridotte, lo spazio era troppo ristretto e così già nel settembre del 1809 si decise di trasferire gli scambi in Piazza Mercanti presso il Palazzo dei Giureconsulti, oggi sede della Camera di Commercio di Milano e che ospitò la Borsa di Milano per quasi un secolo.

Porta Romana
Milan, 20135

Porta Romana is a former city gate of Milan, Italy. In its present form, the gate dates back to the 16th century Spanish walls of Milan; its origins, anyway, can be traced further back to the Roman walls of the city, which had a corresponding "Roman Gate" roughly in the same area.The name "Porta Romana" is used both to refer to the gate proper and to the surrounding district, part of the Zone 4 administrative division of Milan, located south-east of the city centre.The gateHistoryThe Roman walls of Milan already had a gate facing in the same direction as Porta Romana; yet it was located much closer to the city centre, in a place that corresponds to what is now Piazza Missori. In the Middle Ages (12th century) the walls were enlarged, and the gate was moved outwards in the direction of modern Corso di Porta Venezia. In the 16th century, a third system of walls was built under the Spanish rule, and the gate was moved further away from the centre to its current location. The construction of the gate was completed by 1596, on the occasion of Queen Margaret of Spain visiting Milan. For two centuries, Porta Romana was the most sumptuous gate of Milan.Location and structurePorta Romana is located at the centre of a city square called Piazza Medaglie d'Oro, about 2 km south-east of the city centre. It is placed at the conjunction of several major streets, namely Corso Lodi (to the south east), Viale Montenero (to the north east), and Corso di Porta Romana (leading north west, towards the Duomo).

The Ospedale Maggiore, traditionally named Ca' Granda, is a building in the centre of Milan, northern Italy, constructed to house one of the first community hospitals, the largest such undertaking of the fifteenth century. Commissioned by Francesco Sforza in 1456 and designed by Antonio Filarete, it is one of the first examples of Renaissance architecture in Lombardy.Some of the relics of its long-established medical and sanitary history can still be found in the original buildings of the Ospedale Maggiore, which today house the University of Milan.HistoryIn 1456 the Duke of Milan, Francesco Sforza, founded the Magna Domus Hospitalis (Ca' Granda), a hospital dedicated to Annunciata (a municipality of the province of Brescia, Northern Italy). He did so primarily to gain the affection of its people, who were followers of the Visconti family of Milan, even though the Duke was married to Bianca Maria Visconti at the time.Entering Milan victorious on 25 March 1450 (the day of Annunciation), the Duke decided to dedicate a charitable institution to Annunciata. It was then that the new foundation became the Spedale della Nunciata. Designed by the renowned architect Filarete and built by the engineer Guiniforte Solari (responsible for the courtyard of the Certosa di Pavia, a monastery complex in Lombardy, Northern Italy), the hospital formed part of the completion of the reform of hospitals started by the Archbishop Rampini in the years of the Golden Ambrosian Republic.

The Torre Velasca is a skyscraper built in 1950s by the BBPR architectural partnership, in Milan, Italy.ArchitectsBBPR is an acronym from the name of its designers: Gian Luigi Banfi, Lodovico Barbiano di Belgiojoso, Enrico Peressutti and Ernesto Nathan Rogers. At the time of the construction of the Torre Velasca, Banfi was already dead (in 1945 in an Internment camp in Gusen).DescriptionThe Velasca Tower is part of the first generation of Italian modern architecture, while still being part of the Milanese context in which it was born, to which also belongs the Milan Cathedral and the Sforza Castle.The tower, approximately 100 metres tall, has a peculiar and characteristic mushroom-like shape.It stands out in the city skyline, made of domes, buildings and other towers. Its structure recalls the Lombard tradition, made of medieval fortresses and towers, each having a massive profile. In such fortresses, the lower parts were always narrower, while the higher parts propped up by wooden boards or stone beams.As a consequence, the shape of this building is the result of a modern interpretation of the typical Italian medieval castle. At the same time, BBPR in this building satisfied the functional needs of space: narrower surfaces on the ground, wider and more spacious ones on the top floors.

The church and monastery of San Vittore al Corpo were an ancient monastery of the Olivetan order built in the early 16th century. The site once had a 4th-century basilica and mausoleum that once held the burials of the emperors Gratian and Valentinian III. The basilica was enlarged in the 8th century to house the relics of the saints Vittore and Satiro. A Benedictine monastery soon was attached to the church. In 1507, the monastery was transferred to the Olivetans, who began a major reconstruction.During the Napoleonic wars, the site became a military hospital, and afterwards became barracks. It suffered damage during the bombardments of 1943. The monastery now houses a museum of science. Reconstruction of the church was begun in 1533 by Vincenzo Seregni, and completed in 1568 by Pellegrino Tibaldi. La façade remains incomplete. The dome was frescoed in 1617 by Guglielmo Caccia (called "il Moncalvo"). In the chapel of St Anthony is a 1619 canvas by Daniele Crespi (Death of St Paul the hermit). In the transept on the left, is an early 17th century cycle of canvases of the Stories of San Benedetto, by Ambrogio Figino while the right transept has an altarpiece by Camillo Procaccini.

As it was the second broletto to be built in Milan, it is also known as the Broletto Nuovo .The palace is decorated with a relief representing Oldrado da Tresseno, and the bas relief of the scrofa semilanuta, which has been object of much controversy among scholars of the foundation and origins of Milan.HistoryThe building was constructed between 1228 and 1233 for podestà Oldrado da Tresseno. It maintained a central role in the administrative and public life of Milan until the late 18th century. In 1773, under Empress Maria Theresa, it was restored and enlarged, to serve as legal archives. The structural changes were designed by architect Francesco Croce, who added a new upper floor with large round windows and restyled the whole building based on Neoclassic canons. Other major modifications of the buildings were done in 1854 by architect Enrico Terzaghi; these included glass panes that closed the ground floor ambulatory, which was reopened between 1905 and 1907.

The Basilica of Sant'Eustorgio is a church in Milan in northern Italy, which is in the Basilicas Park city park. It was for many years an important stop for pilgrims on their journey to Rome or to the Holy Land, because it was said to contain the tomb of the Three Magi or Three Kings.Probably founded in the 4th century, its name refers to Eustorgius I, the bishop of Milan to whom is attributed the translation of the supposed relics of the Magi to the city from Constantinople in 344. In 1764, when an ancient pillar was removed, a Christian burial was discovered, housing coins of emperor Constans, the son of Constantine the Great.The church was later rebuilt in Romanesque style. In the 12th century, when Milan was sacked by Frederick Barbarossa, the relics of the Magi were appropriated and subsequently taken to Cologne. It was only in 1903/4 that fragments of the bones and garments were sent back to Sant'Eustorgio's. Nowadays they are in the Three Kings altar nearby the empty Three Kings sarcophagus. Still today, in memory of the Three Kings, the bell tower is surmounted by a star instead of the traditional cross.

The Basilica of San Lorenzo Maggiore is an important place of catholic worship located in Milan, within the ring of canals, originally built in Roman times and subsequently rebuilt several times over a number of centuries. Located close to the mediaeval Ticino gate, it is one of the oldest churches in Milan. It is near the city park called Basilicas Park, which includes both the Basilica of San Lorenzo and the Basilica of Sant'Eustorgio, as well as the Roman Colonne di San Lorenzo.HistoryOriginsThe basilica was built between the late fourth and early fifth centuries. The exact date is uncertain, as are the name of who commissioned it and the circumstances of its foundation. According to some scholars San Lorenzo was erected to coincide with the “Basilica Portiana”, which was built by the “Augusto of the West” (Valentinian I or Valentinian II) to please the Bishop of Milan Aussenzzio (355–372) of the Arian faith. If this were to be true, San Lorenzo would have preceded the foundation of the four Ambrosian basilicas. Supporting this proposition is the fact that the Basilica Portiana, cited in many sources that were quoting the struggle of Ambrose to remove it from the Arians, has never been identified with certainty by archaeologists.A second proposition gives the date of the foundation of the church to a later period, between 390 and 402, and attributes its commissioning to Theodosius I or Stilicho. Evidence for this proposition comes from archaeological investigations carried out between 2002 and 2004. Supporters of this view are divided as to the function of the building; for some it is an imperial basilica that would have confirmed the role of Milan as the imperial capital of the West, in rivalry with Rome and Constantinople; for others it is a mausoleum for the Theodosian dynasty.

Dal 1993 ha preso il nome di Tempio centrale Hechal David u-Mordechai.

The first name of the church was in fact Basilica Martyrum.When St. Ambrose arrived in Milan, the local churches were in conflict with each other over the conflict between Arianism and the Nicene Creed as well as numerous local issues. He was firmly in support of the Nicene side of the conflict, and wanted to make northern Italy into a pro-Rome stronghold. He did this through both preaching and construction. He built three or four churches surrounding the city; Basilica Apostolorum (now San Nazaro in Brolo), Basilica Virginum (now San Simpliciano), and Basilica Martyrum (which was later renamed in his honor). A fourth church, Basilica Salvatoris (now San Dionigi) is attributed to him as well, but may not actually be from the 4th century. These churches were dedicated with anti-Arian language and as symbols of the wealth and power of the pro-Nicene faction in Milan.In the centuries after its construction, the edifice underwent several restorations and partial reconstructions, assuming the current appearance in the 12th Century, when it was rebuilt in the Romanesque style.Initially, the basilica was outside the city of Milan, but over the following centuries, the city grew up around it. It became a center of religious life and a community of canons developed in the church. In 789, a monastery was established within the basilica grounds. The canons, however, retained their own community and identity instead of fading away. Two, separate, distinct religious communities shared the basilica. In the 11th century, the canons adopted orders and became Canons Regular. There were now two separate monastic orders following different rules living in the basilica. The canons were in the northern building, the cloister of the canons, while the monks were in the two southern buildings.

The church and monastery of San Vittore al Corpo were an ancient monastery of the Olivetan order built in the early 16th century. The site once had a 4th-century basilica and mausoleum that once held the burials of the emperors Gratian and Valentinian III. The basilica was enlarged in the 8th century to house the relics of the saints Vittore and Satiro. A Benedictine monastery soon was attached to the church. In 1507, the monastery was transferred to the Olivetans, who began a major reconstruction.During the Napoleonic wars, the site became a military hospital, and afterwards became barracks. It suffered damage during the bombardments of 1943. The monastery now houses a museum of science. Reconstruction of the church was begun in 1533 by Vincenzo Seregni, and completed in 1568 by Pellegrino Tibaldi. La façade remains incomplete.

Piazza Fontana bombing

Milan, Italy

La strage di piazza Fontana fu conseguenza di un grave attentato terroristico compiuto il 12 dicembre 1969 nel centro di Milano. Da molti è stata considerata «la madre di tutte le stragi» e ritenuta da alcuni l'inizio del periodo passato alla storia in Italia come anni di piombo. Per tanti aspetti si può parlare d'un prima di piazza Fontana e d'un dopo piazza Fontana. La strage della Banca dell'Agricoltura non fu la più atroce tra quelle che hanno insanguinato l'Italia. Ma fu una sorta di freccia avvelenata che colpì la società italiana, perché diede avvio al periodo stragista con simili gesti di cieca ferocia. Dei tossici che entrarono in circolo il Paese non riuscì più a liberarsi. Essi attizzarono tutte le polemiche, consentirono tutte le recriminazioni e alimentarono la mala pianta del terrorismo.Le indagini si susseguiranno nel corso degli anni, con imputazioni a carico di vari esponenti anarchici e neofascisti; tuttavia alla fine tutti gli accusati sono stati sempre assolti in sede giudiziaria (peraltro alcuni sono stati condannati per altre stragi, e altri usufruiranno della prescrizione, evitando la pena). In contemporanea in Italia scoppiarono altre bombe, provocando 16 feriti, a Roma: una alla Banca Nazionale del Lavoro in via San Basilio, due all'Altare della Patria.Da Milano il prefetto Libero Mazza, su segnalazione dall'Ufficio affari riservati del Viminale, avvisò il Presidente del Consiglio Mariano Rumor: «L'ipotesi attendibile che deve formularsi indirizza le indagini verso gruppi anarcoidi». La sera stessa della strage, intervistato da Tv7, Indro Montanelli espresse dei dubbi sul coinvolgimento degli anarchici, e vent'anni dopo ribadì quella tesi affermando: «Io ho escluso immediatamente la responsabilità degli anarchici per varie ragioni: prima di tutto, forse, per una specie di istinto, di intuizione, ma poi perché conosco gli anarchici. Gli anarchici non sono alieni dalla violenza, ma la usano in un altro modo: non sparano mai nel mucchio, non sparano mai nascondendo la mano. L'anarchico spara al bersaglio, in genere al bersaglio simbolico del potere, e di fronte. Assume sempre la responsabilità del suo gesto. Quindi, quell'infame attentato, evidentemente, non era di marca anarchica o anche se era di marca anarchica veniva da qualcuno che usurpava la qualifica di anarchico, ma non apparteneva certamente alla vera categoria, che io ho conosciuto ben diversa e che credo sia ancora ben diversa...».

La Pinacoteca Ambrosiana è un museo di Milano.StoriaVenne fondata da Federico Borromeo nel 1618 nei pressi della Biblioteca Ambrosiana, istituita già nel 1609. L'istituzione nacque per assicurare una formazione culturale gratuita a chiunque avesse qualità artistiche o intellettuali. Alla Pinacoteca fu infatti affiancata, fin dal 1621, un'accademia di pittura e scultura, con calchi in gesso del Laocoonte e della Pietà di Michelangelo provenienti dalla raccolta di Leone Leoni. Il primo docente di pittura fu il Cerano; unico allievo di una certa importanza fu Daniele Crespi.Una "Seconda Accademia Ambrosiana", riformata in senso classicista su impulso del pittore Antonio Busca e dallo scultore Dionigi Bussola, fu attiva tra il 1668 e la fine del Settecento.DescrizioneLa Biblioteca Ambrosiana e la Pinacoteca sono strettamente collegate. Anche la prima raccoglieva infatti una serie di dipinti con dotti e sapienti del mondo classico e della cultura cristiana e conteneva al suo interno disegni e codici miniati: nel 1637 furono donati da Galeazzo Arconati i manoscritti di Leonardo oggi all'Institut de France (attualmente, dopo le razzie di Napoleone resta in loco il solo Codice Atlantico). Un altro tesoro della Biblioteca è il manoscritto con l'opera di Virgilio già appartenuto a Petrarca (e da lui glossato) con una miniatura di Simone Martini.
