I have thought about this monument for a while and I still don’t know what it means. It looks a little hideous but at the same time it’s thought provoking. Therefore the artist has accomplished his goal, I think?
We came across this rather strange monument on our walk towards Duomo.
It's very strange-looking site, supposedly have to do with a local militia who fought for Italian freedom and unification.
But it's not very pretty nor clear tribute, so one can not be absolutely...More
To tell you the truth I'm not too sure just what this monument is about........
We passed it on the way from our hotel to the Duomo, It is rather striking on both sides and looks like it has had a recent clean up.

The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch expedition into a royal experience. Head to the rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the
view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.
