Arco della Pace - Arch of Peace, Milan: 13 reviews and 25 photos
The impressive Arco della Pace (Peace Arch), made in 1807 by Luigi Gagnola was supposed to be the gate through which Napoleon would have made his entrance to Milan.
But Napoleon did not succeed in celebrating its completion and the arch was inaugurated by Ferdinand I of Austria on 10 September 1838.
As one of the best examples of Milanese Neoclassical art, the arch is decorated with bas-reliefs and scenes illustrating the many events before the fall of Napoleon.
