Visitors arriving for the first time on Piazza del Duomo can not fail to be hit by the magnificent architectural ensemble formed by the cathedral, Palazzo Reale and the palace Arengario on the right and the gallery Vittorio Emanuele II on the left. The equestrian statue (1896) of the first king of Italy unified throne indeed in the middle of Piazza. After being the seat of the various governments of the city over the centuries, Palazzo Reale is today the main exhibition centre in Milan. The Arengario for him, a fine example of rationalist architecture, hosts the Museo del Novecento. As for the beautiful Galleria, it was one of the first in Italy to be covered with a glass dome when it was built in 1867.
