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.

Who works here? What do they do? Where does this doorway lead?

I found myself asking these questions every time we passed an entry like this. 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.

We had visited this interesting store the day before but I returned to get some photos. This gentleman provided the perfect accompaniment to my photo as I snapped away.

Memories of a solo lunch in Milano via My Instagram

When we go somewhere for the annual SRN Conference, I always end up with a day or two on my own. On this day I visited a Leonardo exhibit and then had lunch at this restaurant recommended by our cousin Orazio. It was great and I had a wonderful conversation with the owner who was surprised I spoke some Italian. It was a quintessential Italian experience.

Omenoni (Big Men), Milan

Omenoni (Big Men), Milan via My Instagram

Spotted one of our many strolls about Milano. This home is quite near La Scala Opera House. Yet another of the amazing scenes from our September 2018 visit. 

Casa degli Omenoni is a historic palace of Milan, northern Italy, located in the eponymous street of Via degli Omenoni (number 3).[1] It was designed by sculptor Leone Leoni for himself; he both lived and worked there. It owes its name to the eight atlantes decorating its facade, termed “omenoni” (“big men” in Milanese), which were sculpted by Antonio Abondio,[1] most probably on a design by Leoni.[2] Lions (a reference to the “Leoni” family)[3] are a recurring theme of its decorations; in particular, a large relief placed under the cornice depicts two lions tearing a satyr into pieces. The overall style of the palace and the decorations have been noted to include several references to the art of Michelangelo.[4] The internal courtyard, modified in 1929 by Piero Portaluppi, has a colonnade with metopes and triglyphs. — Wikipedia
