Photographer's Note

The Galleria Vittorio Emanuele is the pride of Milan. Built during the heady days of Italian unification, around 1870, it was the first building in town to have electric lighting. Its art celebrates the establishment of Italy as an independent country. Around the central dome, mosaics symbolize the four major continents. The mosaic floor is also patriotic. The she-wolf with Romulus and Remus honors Rome, the national capital.
A favorite is the "torino"...or "little bull". While it represents the city of Torino, for locals... it's a source of good luck. They can't resist stepping on his little testicles. Locals claim it works better if you give it a spin...


(Milano'daki Galleria Vittorio Emanuele'nin tam ortasındaki kubbenin altında dört kıtayı ve İtalya'nın dört büyük şehrini temsil eden mozaik süslemeler mevcuttur. Torino'yu temsil eden boğanın testisleri üzerinde yapılan 360 derecelik dönüşün uğur getirdiğine inanılır.)
