A walk to discover the “new Milan”, the one of Skyscrapers to then land to the “ancient Milan” of the historical center. How not to stop and observe what was designated, in 2015, the most beautiful skyscraper of the world? This is the now famous Bosco Verticale by the architect Boeri. From here we will land in Piazza Gae Aulenti, where stands the Unicredit Skyscraper, the heart of the new area and of the redevelopment of the areas surrounding the districts of Garibaldi, Isola and Varesine. This square is attended at all hours, by the most varied public; it is a meeting point, a departure for a long walk, an almost all pedestrian square, up to the historic center. We will end the visit with the Salita sui Tetti (Climb up to the Roofs) of the Galleria to admire the suggestive glimpses of the old Milan.
From our boat we will be able to see small corners of the old Milan with a picturesque and dreamy flavour. We will admire the church of San Cristoforo, composed of two coupled churches, dating back to 13th and 15th centuries. We will immerse ourselves in the atmosphere of the new Darsena, a precious corner of Milan, finally returned to its citizens.
The refectory of the Dominican convent, adjoining the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie, houses one of the world’s most celebrated works of art: Leonardo Da Vinci’s “Last Supper”.
Commissioned by Ludovico Il Moro between 1494 and 1498, it is a remarkable examble of “a secco“ painting.
