Tempio della Vittoria - Sacrario dei Caduti

In Piazza Sant'Ambrogio, near the eponymous basilica, lies the Tempio della Vittoria dedicated to the Milanese war casualties. It was built between 1927 and 1930 based on a design by Giovanni Muzio, who collaborated with the architects Gio Ponti and Tommaso Buzzi. The monument, which is inspired by sixteenth century architecture, is the sum of various styles of funerary and monumental art, from the mausoleum of Teodorico in Ravenna to the Tower of Winds in Athens.The various sculptures are a sample of the aesthetic tastes of the '30s.
