In order to see the graveyard of Cimitero Monumentale, you will need to move slightly to the north of Milan. The huge complex Cimitero Monumentale is rich in historical and architectural monuments. The central building of the cemetery was designed by architect Maciachini and built between 1860 and 1897. The building mostly features the neo-medieval style, but traces of the Tuscan and Venetian styles are clearly visible in its architecture. A large number of chapels and tombs have made this cemetery a kind of an open-air museum with a focus on contemporary Italian sculpture and architecture. The entrance to the cemetery is free.
La Scala Theatre.
Teatro alla Scala is one of the most famous opera houses not only in Italy, but also around the world. Performing on the stage of the theatre is a huge honor for any opera singer. The interior of the building has more in common with the interior of a cathedral, rather than a concert hall. Actually, the theatre was built on the site of Santa Maria delle Scala Church between 1775 and 1778. The theater was badly damaged during the Second World War, but in 1946 it was re-opened to the public. The building was under restoration from 2002 to 2004. Theater season opens each year on December 7, the day of St. Ambrosius, the patron saint of Milan.
