Today was filled with museums and churches. First we went to the national Science museum. Here there were many displays of Leonardo da Vinci’s career and interactive displays. There were displays on food, telecommunication, television, music broadcasting, mining, recycling, robotics, Faucault’s pendulum, chemistry, gum and rubber. I thought that this was a very interesting museum and one of my favorites so far on the trip. Our next stop was the church called San Lorenzo. Here is the largest dome in Milan. The church is a round plan not a basilica plan like we have been seeing so far this trip. The church has a Byzantine and Roman style. Also in the church is an upside down pillar that we were looking for. The upside down pillar represents something about what was on the land before the church was built. Next we walked towards duomo Milan to get some lunch at Galleria Vittoria Emanuelle II. Which has the symbols of the fours cities on the floor including Milan, Rome and Florence. If you turn your heel on the Milan symbol it is said to bring symbol it is said to bring you good luck. Of course I did it and so did others. Right next to the Galleria was a smaller piazza called Piazza alla Scala where there is a sculpture of Leonardo di Vinci in the center. Next we walked across the street Teatro alla Scala and theater museum. Here we got to see the opera stage area were everything is performed and tour the museum including lists of names of people in the plays and many little things like musical interments and a lock of hair from someone. Next went to Castello Sforzesco. Which was gothic and later Renaissance. It had many different museums inside including an Egyptian museum and a furniture museum. The museums included the last and unfinished Rondanini Pieta by Michelangelo. Our last stop for the day my favorite was Santa Maria delle Grazie. This church has Da Vinci’s last supper frescos in it. They only let 20 people in every 10 minutes. The painting is not exactly in the church but in the monastery complex right next to the church. The paint was huge and perfect. Even the door that took out Jesus’ feet that was put in for a door to the kitchen was there. Of course everyone wanted pictures of it but everywhere we go is “NO PHOTO”. Big and little Steve tried to take a picture of it, and he left the flash on! Of course he was going to get caught. The people ran over and made him delete the photo he just took. Matt also tried to get a picture of it on his phone and was also caught by the people running the place. After that I definitely was not going to try to take and pictures. For dinner we did not have any specific plans and Ryan, Rachel, Emily, Patrick and I went to the store to pick up some pasta, bread, meat, and sauce to make a pasta feast. It was fun to make the dinner and was delicious. After dinner made the final plans for our trip to Venice tomorrow!
