Milan is one of the leading destinations in Europe and the world, and many people visit the city every year. Most of them end up seeing the same places over and over again. Since our idea with Fotostrasse was always to bring excellent people to fantastic places, we decided to come up with this list of unusual places to visit in Milan.
There is one particular sculpture that caught my attention when I visited the Duomo di Milano for the first time. The piece is called St Bartholomew Flayed, and it was created by Marco d’Agrate back in 1562. And that skinless statue is so unusual that I had to research it and write this article with everything I know now about it.
When you cross the Piazza Affari in Milan, you will need to stop and take a picture of a huge middle finger statue in front of the Palazzo Mezzanotte. This provocative art piece is the work of Maurizio Cattelan. It receives the name of L.O.V.E., but the Italians decided to call it Il Dito.
When you are leaving the Saint Ambrose Church in Milan, you can see a white marble column that looks like it has seen better days. There are even two prominent holes at its base, and they are the reason why its name is the Devil’s Column.
