Map of Hamnbukt – Porsanger for Rotonda della Besana The Giardino della Guastalla, laid out in 1555, leads through to Milan’s main synagogue, and lies behind the Ospedale Maggiore. Four blocks east, past the monolithic Palazzo di Giustizia law courts and the city’s main hospital, stands the peaceful Rotonda della Besana, the Ospedale Maggiore’s cemetery, opened in 1695 and designed by Francesco Raffagno. At the centre, the Greek-cross chapel of San Michele ai Nuovi Sepolcri, built in 1713, was turned into the hospital laundry in the early nineteenth century. Now deconsecrated, the tranquil space is used for temporary exhibitions, while the surrounding grass and cool arcaded porticoes make a perfect spot for a picnic. Corso Porta Ticinese Past the chain stores of Via Torino, leading southwest away from the Duomo to the canals, the city takes on a different, slightly more alternative air. The main thoroughfare, Corso Porta Ticinese, is a fashionable and popular area lined with small boutiques and bars. The area really comes into its own at aperitivo time, especially during summer when people spill onto the pedestrian streets from the numerous bars and caf s. The neighbourhood also boasts two of Milan’s most important churches and most rewarding sights San Lorenzo Maggiore and Sant’Eustorgio. The Ticinese district has always played an important role in the history of the city. Map of Hamnbukt – Porsanger 2016.
