12/29.- Milan, Leonardo Memorial


You can see here Leonardo da Vinci’s sculpture. Leonardo is one of the biggest genius of all times. He was the personification of the Renaissance: artist, scientific, inventor and writer. But what brought us here is not this monument but the Teatro della Scala (which sits at our back, sorry no photo). This is probably the most famous opera theater in the world. Giuseppe Piermarini designed the theater, which can hold up to 2,000 spectators, in 1776-1778. In la Scala you can hear the world’s most famous divos and divas sing, and remember the times when Maria Callas sang here. Next to the Scala sits the 'Museo della Scala', with an interesting collection of opera objects.
