The Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II in Milan links Piazza Duomo and Piazza della Scala, and with two side exits allow access to Via Silvio Pellico and Via Ugo Foscolo. It was designed by architect Giuseppe Mengoni and built in 1865. The gallery is known as "The Milan salon" and is the traditional meeting place for citizens and tourists thanks to the presence of prestigious shops, and famous cafes and restaurants. On the floor of the central octagon there is a mosaic of the coat of arms of the House of Savoy. On the sides, always in mosaic, are represented the arms of the four cities that at different times were capitals of the Kingdom of Italy: Milan, Turin, Florence and Rome. In the lunettes around the ceiling are represented allegories of the four continents: Africa, Asia, Europe and America.
