Milan – Stazione Garibaldi, Lombardy

by david

Here are some fotos taken from the windows of my tenth floor room. Milano is the economic capital of Italy. Many buildings going up. Everything is very expensive.

As is my habit, I walk from the hotel and take fotos as I go. I hope you enjoy the walk!

The brass tubes: On my way into the grand castle of Kafka, I came upon this sculpture. There is an explanation in Italian in the stone work at its base. On my way back, I asked an elderly couple to translate for me. These tubes run down to various levels of the complex. They allow one to speak into each end, sending the sounds all about the complex. The voices of the people being shared, heard throughout the plaza. Wonderful!

Here are the fotos of the couple who translated for me.

At this point in my walk (it was cold out), I ducked into a beautiful bookstore to change my frame of reference.
