Milan: Leonardo da Vinci’s Basin

A canal system that criss-crossed Milan designed by Leonardo

1 Comment

The Porte Vinciane (Da Vinci’s Gates) are one of Da Vinci’s places in Milan:

a canal system that criss-crossed Milan, designed by Leonardo himself, which was very important for communication and trade in the past.

Today, Da Vinci’s gates represent a symbol for Milan, to demonstrate how much the city owes to the water and how the Navigli could be used for business, trade and leisure even nowadays.
