Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II


Vittorio Emanuele II Gallery is one of the most enchanting places of Milan, the Italian capital of fashion. It is a perfect combination between art and culture, and amusement and shopping: in fact, is is characterized by marble floors and a magnificent steel dome and it hosts high fashion shops and ateliers, luxury restaurants and elegant bars. Because of this, it is known as “the Milan lounge”.

The huge dome impresses the tourists for its charm and elegance; it frames four lunettes which represent the continents: Europe, Asia, Africa and America. The octagon located in its centre includes the Savoia’s family crest and a symbolic bull.

Vittorio Emanuele II Gallery is made of two vaulted glass arches and of an octagon which covers the street that connects Piazza del Duomo and Piazza della Scala: thus, it connects two of the most important monuments of Milan, the Duomo (Cathedral) and the Theatre alla Scala.

If you are in Milan, you should visit this beautiful gallery and admire it spectacular details. We suggest you to take a look to the dresses that are exhibited in the shops windows and immerse yourself in the scents coming from the kitchens of the restaurants. Speaking of restaurants: inside Vittorio Emanuele II Gallery there is Carlo Cracco’s restaurant: he is one of the most famous chefs of Italy.


Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II è uno dei luoghi più incantevoli di Milano, capitale della moda italiana. Si configura come una combinazione perfetta tra arte e cultura, e svago e shopping: è infatti caratterizzata da pavimenti in marmo e una magnifica cupola d’acciaio e ospita negozi di alta moda e ateliers, ristornati di lusso ed eleganti bar. Proprio per questo motivo è soprannominata “il salotto di Milano”.

L’enorme volta colpisce i turisti per il suo fascino e la sua eleganza; essa incornicia quattro lunette che rappresentano i continenti: Europa, Asia, Africa e America. L’ottagono posizionato al suo centro comprende invece lo stemma dell’antica famiglia Savoia ed un simbolico toro.

Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II è quindi formata da due archi a volta in vetro e da un ottagono che riveste la via che unisce Piazza del Duomo e Piazza della Scala: essa collega quindi due dei più importanti monumenti di Milano, il Duomo ed il Teatro alla Scala.

Se vi trovate a Milano, non potete non visitare questa bellissima galleria ed ammirare i suoi dettagli spettacolari. Vi consigliamo anche di dare un’occhiata anche agli abiti esposti nelle vetrine ed immergervi nei profumi provenienti dalle varie cucine dei ristoranti.
