Telling you more about Milan, by Hotelcompany

By: Mitchel Geerts

Milan is one of the most famous city's of Italy and is famous because it's the artistic centre of Italy. This city has a lot of landmarks like the Duomo, it's a very large cathedral (the second largest in he world) and it is the largest gothic church. There is a golden Madonna on the top called the little Madonna and that is Milan's symbol. The city is founded around 400BC by the Celtic people and was declared capital of the western Roman Empire. The name is called after Medelhan meaning the middle of the plain in Celtic. Milan has a subtropical climate and has a comfortable Mediterranean climate. There are a lot of famous firms in Milan here are some of them:

?Alemagna

?Alfa Romeo

?Giorgio Armani

?Arnoldo Mondadori Editore

?Banca Intesa

?Bugatti

?Corriere della Sera/RCS

?Dolce & Gabbana

?Ferrovie Nord Milano

?Fiera Milano

?Gaggia

?Mediaset

Some famous food of the region is coletta alla Milanese and that is a fried veal also known as Wienerschnitzel. Another great dish is cassoeula what is stewed pork.

And there is salame Milanese, that's a very nice salame with a very thin part of grain and what I like most from this region is the gorgonzola cheese.

But back to Culture and art, Milan is also famous for it's opera lirica that's called Teatro alla. This theatre is opened in under the name Nuovo Ducal Teatro alla Scala but it was destroyed by a fire in 1776 and reopened under the new name in 1778. Scala also was a galary and a casino with many gamblers. In Milan there is also the Basilica of Sant'Ambrogio one of Italy's most ancient churches and was built in about 380 by Bishop Ambrose. The first name of this building is Basilica Martyrum. The hut-like look is typical for the Lombard architecture from the medieval time.

Now I'll talk about religion, because religion is very important in Italy. Most people in Italy are Roman Catholic and the minorities are Muslims. The rite of Milan is different then the Catholic one and is named Ambrosian Rite. One of the differences is the music the Gregorian chant is completely unused and the Milan region, because they use there own Ambrosian chant.

Believe me Milan is really a great city to visit, that is also great for a mix of shopping, culture, religion and much more. I can tell you a lot more about it but I think the best thing is that you go look for yourself. Almost 4 million people will welcome you in the province of Milan. And when you visit make sure to write an article that describes the trip, so others can also get to know Milan more. That would make me very happy. I Thank u for reading my article and browse around because there are much more great articles to read on this website.
