Although I have been to Milan several times, I hardly feel I know it. I wanted to see the Brera, so walked.
First stop was the military headquarters in the Via del Carmine, with its intriguing brutalist sculpture:-
The officers’ mess is in Ruggeri’s Palazzo Cusani (1719) next door:-
I liked the bombast of this late nineteenth-century house in the Via Borgonuovo:-
Then, I headed south to see the Torre Velasca, by BBPR, which was apparently criticised by the CIAM Congress in 1959 and regarded by Reyner Banham as representing the ‘Italian retreat from Modern Architecture’. Looks pretty modern to me:-
Last stop before a long, hot march into the suburbs was S. Nazaro. I never did find the Trivulzio Mausoleum:-
