Everything is magnificent in Milan: the widespread wealth, the number and the elegance of the palaces, the friendly nature of its people; the quiet life; the beauty of the place, among the double circle of its walls; and, the people's passion, the Circus, and the great arcades of the Theater; the Temples, the Palatine palace and the wealthy Mint; the overcrowded fence of the Hercules Thermal baths; the peristyles decorated by marble ornaments; and the walls, surrounded by a moat like a fortification. Everything competes in beauty and opulence, so that even comparing it to Rome, don't diminish it.
With such words the roman poet Decimus Magnus Ausonius described Milan in 4th Century AD. Seventeen centuries have passed, and our intent now, with "Milano da Vedere" project, is to let us discover, or rediscover, the artistic and historical treasures that Milan is hiding, often even to itself. Down the streets of the town, often inside the area once circled by "Navigli"canals, the traces of a glorious past are willing to, and must tell those stories, that should be known again, both by the born and bred Milanese, as well as by the tourists. We propose a virtual itinerary, using the tools that internet provides nowadays, and then its realization thanks to a series of Tours in streets, palaces and churches of Milan. A set of itineraries that goes beyond the classical postcard picture; take for instance Duomo, the Castle, the Last Supper Church, Brera: even if those are astonishing locations, they are only a small part of what we will discover with our Tours. They will be only a symbol of the greater beauty of Milan.
