Expo Gate

Milan from the Window of Tram n. 1

Milan (Italy). This photograph demonstrates – if necessary – that in every moment of the day there is an opportunity to capture an image (and how useful and handy is the Ricoh GR camera, which perfectly fits in my raincoat pocket and is ready to use in every moment).

Yesterday I was on my way home back from the office and I jumped on the tram n.1. It is definitely a very old but characteristic coach, which dates back around 1920 – 1930 but is now fully operating after a complete and renovation work. When I was sit on one of its wooden benches, I was thinking about how watching a city from the window of a tram is an amazing experience. If in Lisbon, the famous tram n. 28 crossing the Alfama district is one of the most popular touristic attractions, why it cannot be the same here in Milan? Not to mention how nice and interesting can be photographing life from and inside trams! I’m developing a specific project about it…

Here, the tram is crossing Largo Cairoli, moving from Foro Bonaparte to Via Cusani; through the window I can see the Expo Gate and the Sforza Castle in Piazza Castello.

Time to Say Goodbye – La Demolizione dell’Expo Gate

Milan (Italy). Expo Milano 2015 ended exactly one year ago, and the Expo Gate demolition has just begun. This large structure connecting Piazza Castello and Largo Cairoli was built to symbolise an access door to the Expo event and to the many initiatives related to it.

I photographed the Expo Gate several times (for example here, here and here) and all things considered I think it’s enough… it’s time to say goodbye, and to return watching the Sforza Castle without the futuristic frame of the Gate’s Pyramids.


Milano. Expo Milano 2015 è finito da esattamente un anno ed è finalmente in corso la demolizione dell’Expo Gate, la struttura che collega Piazza Castello con Largo Cairoli realizzata con l’intento di rappresentare una porta di accesso all’evento e alle numerose iniziative ad esso correlate.

L’ho fotografata diverse volte (ad esempio qui, qui e qui) e tutto sommato penso che tutto sommato può bastare così… E’ tempo di salutarlo, e di ricominciare a vedere il Castello Sforzesco senza la futuristica cornice delle piramidi di Expo Gate.
