Il Duomo In The Morning

Il Duomo In The Morning via Instagram

The Duomo in Milan and it’s piazza are the living room of old town Milan. 

We saw it in nearly every time of day. Walking by for lunch. Strolling in the evening during Passeggiata and in this case, in the morning as the sun rises over it’s at spires. 

It looks different throughout the day and nearly every photo is different because of the way light plays On its ornate facade. I often liken it To a grand wedding cake created out of stone instead of frosting.

This store, the first in Italy, open last September, the day before we arrived for the Screenwriting Research Network conference. 
The store is a veritable coffee amusement park with typical Starbucks drinks and food as well as a full-service Italian “bar” with drinks and food and a very classy design.

I highly recommend you visit when you are in Milan. This was an amazing respite from the city but still within the city. Bring bug spray as the mosquitos were fierce but the views were gorgeous.

Where does this doorway lead? Sometimes you just have to follow it and see!

I collected many such pictures on our trip to Milan last September and have often done the same on past trips to Italy. They are always so fascinating especially when they give such tantalizing views of what lies beyond.

On our trip to Milan for the 2019 SRN Conference we had the time to visit the Museum of the Risorgimento so I could do some research on the Italian perspective of Giuseppe Garibaldi, the topic of my second Mentoris novel. It really helped me see him from several sides – and artwork like this highlighted the place he holds in world civilization.
