Not a Museum

City of the Future

The Space Ship


I've kept these three photos separate from the last lot. They didn't really feel like the same city, but that's Milan all over, different area, different face. It would be unfair to seek beauty only in the parts tourists want to see.

It's easy to forget that the north of Italy is primarily concerned with industry and finance, and with these comes kilometres of warehouses. When I first came I found it depressingly industrial, but now I think it was perhaps my attitude which was wrong. The country is not a museum, no matter how much we visitors would like it to be one.
