L'Art Nouveau, der Jugendstil, der Secession, the Floral Art, el Modernismo all different names according to its place of origin: in Milan this particular architectural style is named Liberty.

Let's open the doors to a Liberty route in Milan to discover mansions, big and small buildings, factories and monuments! They are all distinguished by this particular style that in Milan was influenced by the rational mentality acquired by local culture during the long Austro-Hungarian domination and tends to the Eclectiscism.

During the private guided tour you will be surprised to see so many rich concrete decorations with high-relief female faces dominated by wrought-iron gates and balustrades, or façades that stands out for their sophisticated natural motifs and gorgeous floral relieves, puttos. . . . . . .
