This sculpture is outside the train station and has the different colours for the railway lines. The needle is thread is impressive with the size. I particularly liked this sculpture.

A tourist attraction outside of Cadorna Railway Station, representing fashion in Milan. Worth a visit - near to the entrance of the Sempione Park.

This is a cute statue. It's a great place for a picture, but nothing terribly exciting. Not worth a trip across town.

One of the most impressive modern art installations in Milan. You can find it if you come to Cadorna Metro station and was made in 2000 by famous Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen. Have a look at the pictures.

I personally do not like modern compositions in the classical environment, but this sculpture in front of Cadorna station provoked positive feelings. It is different than the usual things in Milan, but it is worth seeing.
