The Statue of Liberty
Did you know that in Milan there is an exact same copy of the Statue of Liberty? Check this link to know where it is and why Milan has its own Statue of Liberty.
The 9/11 memorial
The city of Milan has dedicated a street to the victims of the 9/11 terrorist attack. It is called “Largo Vittime dell’11 settembre” (Victims of the 11th of September square). The largo features a sculpture by artist Bernard Roig which pays tribute to all the victims of terrorism. It was officially inaugurated on the 11th of September 2012 and in that occasion the US Consul General said:
“This moving gesture by the city of Milan demonstrates that, after that tragedy, the friendship between Italy and the United States has strengthened”
The US Consulate
The US consulate of Milan is just a few steps from Piazza Stati Uniti d’ America (United States of America square). Hosted since 1985 in the Montecatini Building designed by world famous Italian architect Gio Ponti, the Consulate General of the United States has been for a long time in the city of Milan. A document dated 1879 states that the Consulate was located, even at that time, in via Principe Amedeo in the heart of Milan. The current Consulate building overlooks Piazza Stati Uniti d’America, rededicated by the municipal council in memory of the victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. This square also features the headquarter of Radio 105 one of the most important radio in Italy.
The American food
It might sound weird but if you are willing to enjoy some good American food while in Italy ( I know…you are in Italy for Italian food but…you never know…) there are some good restaurants in the city that offer courses that New Yorkers will enjoy. Check this link for American food in Milan.
Milan has always been the capital of the Italian entertainment industry. While in town you can enjoy one of the performances of US musicals that have crossed the Atlantic Ocean. The Jersey boys, Wicked and many others have been applauded by the Milanese audience.
