Where you’ll be

Milano, Lombardia, Italy

The apartment is located in front of the Columns of San Lorenzo, the famous monument of the city of Milan; These are sixteen columns, about 7 and a half meters high, in Musso marble, with Corinthian capitals that support the entablature. They come from Roman buildings dating back to the II or III century, probably a pagan temple located in the area of ​​today's Piazza Santa Maria Beltrade [1].

The columns were transported to their current location to complete the later basilica of San Lorenzo. The capitals come from two different buildings; they are in fact different in style and size. A lower brick thickness has been added to the lower capitals to level them with the others. The assembly that can be seen today was carried out in the Middle Ages, between the eleventh and twelfth centuries, to which the brick parts that complete the architrave date back, with the arch surmounted by the cross in the center of the colonnade. Leaning against the basilica there are other bodies, among which the chapel of St. Aquilino with Roman mosaics is noteworthy.

Until 1935, in the current square that rises between the Columns and the Basilica of San Lorenzo there was an entire block formed by old popular buildings; this complex was demolished to give greater coherence and monumentality to the basilica, in keeping with the principles and urban planning of the time. The new square was subsequently occupied by the tram tracks, which in the nineties was moved beyond the Columns, on interpenetrating tracks. From 1937 is the bronze statue of Constantine Emperor, tied to Milan for the promulgation of the famous edict of the year 313, modern copy of a late antique original preserved in Rome.

The Columns still have a particular emotional meaning for the Milanese, visibly testifying the history of the ancient Mediolanum, somehow surviving the destructive fury of the Goths, Barbarossa and the bombings of the Second World War.
