People, architecture, sound and mood of the largest railway stations in Milano: Centrale and Porta Garibaldi

Advertisements

The metropolitan area of Milano includes 23 train stations. The largest one, simply called “Centrale”, is a monumental building with spectacular arches and large halls adorned with sculptures, mosaics, and huge advertisement installations. Its architecture is a blend of Liberty and Art Déco but someone has defined it as Assyrian-Milanese, a mix of Babylon, Gotham City and ancient imperial Rome style. Thousands of people pass through Centrale every day. They are travelers or daily commuters, but also illegal immigrants and all sort of people wasting their time.
