What you can see (thanks to re-positioned camera) il called "La Madonnina" (=the small Lady) not for the size (4.16 metres) not for the position (108 hight) but because was visible from everywhere in the city of Milan where a law was limiting every other construction to be lower than La Madonnina (to obey to this rule every building higher then it has a copy of same statue on the top).
Nice to see the webcam view re-positioned so we can see La Madelina on top of the Duomo. Milan is calling it's time to visit again.
Must have been a special celebration going on at Piazza del Duomo today. I really enjoy our visits to Milan and am looking forward to a next visit
18apr19--Kiki, I agree in thanking the business bringing views like here " View over the Milan Cathedral, the Galleria and the equestrian statue of Vittorio Emanuele II " How cool. Countries main capitol squares are my favorite. Connected to the Whirled. SkylineWebcams brings us - we the viewers - in your face - reasons why. EnJoy EnJoy
2am Milan time.They are taking the sculpture away and how they take it apart is fascinating. The round brown ball comes apart into 2 pieces, very cool.
Thank you Glamour Apartments. Your hosting has inspired art debate! Personally my favorite debate, the effect of art, be it what it may. The people I work for say Milan is a banking city, conservative. I have never been there. But other cities I have visited, that are maybe considered "conservative" have amazing and edgy public art installations. I have noticed, no expert just a fan of free art/music/performance.
Capture sam nice to see your still entertaining us with your own Tosh, as for Musk's automobile in space it is nothing more than Fly Tipping and he should be fined for it have a nice day
Yes , Jim , Others said the same about my HAND outlines in the caves 100,000 years ago. Nice to see you've joined that CLUB. Musk's automobile in space is in the same boat too, right? EnJoy EnJoy ROTFLMAOSTFD
That thing there looks absolutely revolting in front of the cathedral
An admirable sculpture for sure, but totally out of place in this setting
11apr19--An armchair stylized as a female torso, pocked with arrows and under attack by wild animals. It sits inert, chained to a spherical ottoman. Search for ' Maestà Sofferente by Gaetano Pesce ' and read about the protests. EnJoy EnJoy
PMM yes, them too! he he
... well Shauna - if you cover up the ‘front’ half it reminds me of two ‘sensitive’ parts of the male anatomy! (Don’t imagine this comment will be passed by the moderators! ;)
Here's my opinion on the sculpture. It is a "whiskery" women's torso. The breasts are the head support and the belly is the seat.Can someone explain the whiskers? Seriously or humorously would be appreciated.
Just looked at the designers famous arm chair . If you have ever been through Schiphol Airport you have seen his arm chairs, the red one's with a red ball foot stool attached that are all over the lounge area's of Amsterdam airport.
Thank you Glamour Apartments for hosting this great cam! Well. hmmm. At first I thought maybe it was a frog's head and we were looking at the back of it.
