Milan and Lake Como, March 2010

This is a shot of the roof of the original "Galleria" in Milan. I know it looks a lot like the Galleria in Cambridge, but they differ in lots of ways. This galleria doesn't have a Macy's, but does have gelato. It does share one characteristic with the American mall - McDonalds. It is as ornate as the Galleria and features hostesses in fashionable uniforms. Very Italian. It also has a Borsalino Shop which is the source of the large black hats worn by ultra-orthodox Jews. Clearly multicultural despite being a couple of hundred years old. If you would like to view a slide show of my photos of Milan and Lake Como click on ITALY
