Gallerie di Piazza Scala

Milan, Italy

The Gallerie di Piazza Scala is a modern and contemporary museum in Milan. Located in Piazza della Scala in the Palazzo Brentani and the Palazzo Anguissola, it hosts 195 artworks from the collections of Fondazione Cariplo with a strong representation of nineteenth century Lombard painters and sculptors, including Antonio Canova and Umberto Boccioni. A new section was opened in the Palazzo della Banca Commerciale Italiana in 2012 with 189 art works from the twentieth century.

The Palazzo Anguissola construction began in 1778, and its Neoclassical facade, designed by Luigi Canonica, was added in 1829 (as well as the facade of adjacent Palazzo Brentani).

In love with every corner of this gallery. When I came, there was no audio guide (probably because of the pandemic, it's just newly opened so they havent prepared). However, the museum guide was nice to me and he explained to me the details of the paintings when I ask. I like how the exhibition is structured, and also the architecture of the building itself is awesome! I will come back again to further explore Italian art!

Incredible attention to detail. Absolutely my favorite part of Madrid, stumbled upon it and wow was I amazed. Everywhere in Italy is amazing but this was just so special, all the detail work in the walls and ceilings, the art pieces just everything is stunning. 10/10 recommend when you go and visit Teatro Alla Scala

Some very beautiful paintings. Unfortunately felt like there wasn't enough to see.

Frösö Runestone

Frösöstenen is the northern-most raised runestone in the world and Jämtland's only runestone. It originally stood at the tip of ferry terminal on the sound between the island of Frösön and Östersund. The stone dates to between 1030 and 1050. It has now been relocated to the lawn in front of the local county seat due to the construction of a new bridge, between 1969 and 1971, on the original site.

Frösö runestone inscription means: Austmaðr, Guðfastr's son, had this stone raised and this bridge built and Christianized Jämtland. Ásbjörn built the bridge. Trjónn and Steinn carved these runes.
