Arco della Pace

Arco della Pace stands in the middle of the Sempione Park . It has been adapted to various historical functions through the years. It was begun by Luigi Cagnola in 1807 to celebrate the victories of Napoleon. It was officially unveiled by the Emperor Ferdinand I of Austria the 10th September 1838. The most spectacular part of the richly decorated arch, which is 25 metres high, is the bronze chariot with six horses, by Abbondio Sangiorgio.
