Mark Twain said the following of the Duomo in Milan in his work, Innocents Abroad: What a wonder it is! So grand, so solemn, so vast! And yet so delicate, so airy, so graceful! A very world of solid weight, and yet it seems ...a delusion of frostwork that might vanish with a breath!...The central one of its five great doors is bordered with a bas-relief of birds and fruits and beasts and insects, which have been so ingeniously carved out of the marble that they seem like living creatures-- and the figures are so numerous and the design so complex, that one might study it a week without exhausting its interest...everywhere that a niche or a perch can be found about the enormous building, from summit to base, there is a marble statue, and every statue is a study in itself...Away above, on the lofty roof, rank on rank of carved and fretted spires spring high in the air, and through their rich tracery one sees the sky beyond. ...(Up on) the roof...springing from its broad marble flagstones, were the long files of spires, looking very tall close at hand, but diminishing in the distance...We could see, now, that the statue on the top of each was the size of a large man, though they all looked like dolls from the street... They say that the Cathedral of Milan is second only to St. Peter's at Rome. I cannot understand how it can be second to anything made by human hands. from my daily photo blog at www.stuckincustoms.com

Jannis Kounellis was born on March 23, 1936 in Piraeus, Greece. He studied in art college in Athens until 1956 and at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Rome. In 1963, the artist introduced found objects in his paintings, among them live animals but also fire, earth, burlap sacks, gold. He replaced the canvas with bed frames, doorways, windows or simply the gallery itself. In 1967, Kounellis joined the Arte Povera movement of Germano Celant. In 1969, he exhibited real horses in the galleria l’Attico. Gradually, Kounellis introduced new materials in his installations (propane torches, smoke, coal, meat, ground coffee, lead, found wooden objects, etc.). The gallery environment was replaced with historical (mostly industrial) sites. October 2009 finds many Kounellis' works presented in various sections of the Tate Modern Gallery in London, UK. On the 5th floor, there is a room dedicated to his work. Jonathan Jones of the Guardian newspaper notes : dry-stone walling, sacks of grain and rice, and a painting that includes part of the score of St John Passion by JS Bach bring a sense of real life, organic and ancient, into the museum. Like the Kiefer installation, this is another of the Artist Rooms acquired from the collection of Anthony d'Offay. On the 3rd floor, one of his works is matched with that of an Italian artist of the same artistic movement.

Duomo di Milano

Duomo di Milano
Made by Fabrizio ♣
The Gothic cathedral took five centuries to complete and is the fourth-largest church in the world. The cathedral of Milano is often described as one of the greatest churches in the world.The ground plan is of a nave with five aisles, crossed by a transept and then followed by choir and apsis. The height of the nave is about 45 meters, the highest Gothic vaults of a complete church (less than the 48 meters of Beauvais Cathedral that was never completed). The roof is open to tourists (for a fee), which allows many a close-up view of some spectacular sculpture that would otherwise be unappreciated. The roof of the cathedral is renowned for the forest of openwork pinnacles and spires, set upon delicate flying buttresses. The cathedral's five wide naves, divided by 40 pillars, are reflected in the hierarchic openings of the facade. Even the transepts have aisles. The nave columns are 24.5 metres (80 ft) high, and the apsidal windows are 20.7 x 8.5 metres (68 x 28 feet). The huge building is of brick construction, faced with marble from the quarries which Gian Galeazzo Visconti donated in perpetuity to the cathedral chapter. Its maintenance and repairs are very complicated. From Wikipedia HOLGA+Polaroid Back. 2 shots on 1 photo

Visitors are allowed to walk on the roof of The Cathedral, Milan, Italy. Milan Cathedral (Italian: Duomo di Milano) is the cathedral church of Milan in Lombardy, northern Italy. It is the seat of the Archbishop of Milan, currently Dionigi Tettamanzi. The cathedral is famous throughout the world for its significance in the promulgation of the Christian faith, for its role in the establishment of Catholic traditions of worship, its outstanding musical heritage and the splendour of its Gothic architecture. Built from the late 14th well into the 19th century (and in a sense, never completed as work continues), the Duomo di Milano is one of the world's largest churches, being second in size within Italy only to Saint Peter's Basilica in Rome, and being the second largest Gothic cathedral in the world, after the Cathedral of Seville in Spain. The interior height of its central nave is surpassed only by the remaining choir of Beauvais Cathedral in France. (Wikipedia)

Milan Train Station at Midnight

Milan Train Station at Midnight

If you want to see how I made this (and how you can too!), visit my HDR Tutorial. I hope it gives you some new tricks! I had a super-long day in Milan. I was tired and just wanted to go back to the hotel to have a cappuccino in the bar and edit photography on my laptop. But I remembered the really pretty train station and how I wanted to get a shot with nobody around. I went in around midnight, found the perfect spot, and then shot away. The HDR process always takes that slick concrete and makes it extra-reflective. Reflective ground is always great for photography. Also, people always think that I colored the lights up at the top, but I did not. In fact, I never paint on my photos. Any color that you see in them was actually there, except in the cases when I apply a texture treatment. from my daily photo blog at www.stuckincustoms.com

Era una di quelle giornate in cui tra un minuto nevica. E c'è elettricità nell'aria. Puoi quasi sentirla... mi segui? E questa busta era lì; danzava, con me. Come una bambina che mi supplicasse di giocare. Per quindici minuti. È stato il giorno in cui ho capito che c'era tutta un'intera vita, dietro a ogni cosa. E un'incredibile forza benevola che voleva sapessi che non c'era motivo di avere paura. Mai. Vederla sul video è povera cosa, lo so; ma mi aiuta a ricordare. Ho bisogno di ricordare. A volte c'è così tanta bellezza nel mondo, che non riesco ad accettarla... Il mio cuore sta per franare. Ricky Fitts, American Beauty (S. Mendes, 1999) lo so è un giornale, non è una busta. ma mi ha dato la stessa frana intima che Ricky descrive in poche parole in quel film. io, in una piazza Duomo a contare il ghiaccio e i passi di qualche vecchio passante invernale.

Scatto rubato in piazza duomo durante i festeggiamenti per lo scudetto interista. E' bello vedere come per qualsiasi motivo ogni persona che ci circonda in un modo o nell'altro finisca per attirare la nostra attenzione. Non si muoveva una foglia quel giorno e nella bolgia che si era venuta a creare vedere i capelli di questa ragazza svolazzare al vento è stato come vedere una persona che d'estate va a mare col cappotto. Non ho avuto neanche il tempo di pensare se non quello di alzare la fotocamera e scattare. Un solo scatto.

Un classico ... View large on black Il Duomo di Milano , monumento simbolo del capoluogo lombardo, è dedicato a Santa Maria Nascente ed è situato nell'omonima piazza nel centro della città. Per superficie, è la quarta chiesa d'Europa, dopo San Pietro in Vaticano, Saint Paul a Londra e la cattedrale di Siviglia. La sua storia è lunga, incomincia nel 1386... vi preciso solo che nel 1805, su istanza diretta di Napoleone, Giuseppe Zanoia avviò i lavori per il completamento della facciata, in previsione dell'incoronazione a re d'Italia. Il progetto venne finalmente concluso nel 1813 da Carlo Amati. Tra gli scultori che vi lavorarono nei primi anni dell'Ottocento, si può ricordare Luigi Acquisti.

Duomo di Milano, Milano. Milan Cathedral is the cathedral church of Milan in Lombardy, northern Italy. Dedicated to Santa Maria Nascente (Saint Mary Nascent), it is the seat of the Archbishop of Milan, currently Cardinal Dionigi Tettamanzi. The Gothic cathedral took nearly six centuries to complete. It is the fourth largest cathedral in the world. Milan's layout, with streets either radiating from the Duomo or circling it, reveals that the Duomo occupies what was the most central site in Roman Mediolanum, that of the public basilica facing the forum. Saint Ambrose's 'New Basilica' was built on this site at the beginning of the 5th century, with an adjoining basilica added in 836. When a fire damaged both buildings in 1075, they were later rebuilt as the Duomo.

Ed il cielo è sempre più blù.... Il Duomo di Milano è l'opera più importante dell'architettura gotica in Italia. In marmo bianco la costruzione maestosa si estende su una lunghezza di più di 157 metri. Con le sue cinque braccia è sopraffacente di grandezza. La luce attraversa le bellissime finestre di vetro colorate ed illumina l'interno. Il Duomo di Milano fu iniziata nell'anno 1386 e sperimentò numerosi architetti. La facciata, iniziata dall'anno 1567, fu costruita nello stile classico-barocco. Nell'anno 1805 furono conclusi i lavori di facciata, mentre continuarono le creazioni delle piccole e piccolissime torri per tutto il novecento. Per il lungo periodo di costruzione vari stili influenzarono l'estetica dell'opera.

The Adventure of the Yellow Face, one of the 56 short Sherlock Holmes stories written by British author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, is the third tale from The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes. It was first published in Strand Magazine in 1894 with original illustrations by Sidney Paget. One of Doyles's sentimental pieces, the story is remarkable in that Holmes' deduction during the course of it proves incorrect. (Nevertheless, the truth still comes out.) According to Dr. Watson: ...where he failed it happened too often that no one else succeeded... Now and again, however, it chanced that even when he erred the truth was still discovered. ...taken amongst the scaffoldings in Piazza Duomo, on a rainy wednesday night... Milan, Italy...

San Bartolomeo

San Bartolomeo
Made by brunosky
The Duomo of Milan's most famous sculpture is the figure of the martyr apostle San Bartolomeo by Marco D'Agrate, 1562. He was born in the first century in Galilee and died in the first century in Syria, and was famous for his healing powers. The martyrdom of San Bartolomeo has been documented in many legends. He was sentenced to the so-called Persian death penalty: skinned alive and then crucified. What you can see around his neck, shoulders and hips is his peeled off skin. Inspired by , whose author is one of the most talented photographers here on Flickr.
