Piazza Fontana

Just a short walk from the landmark Duomo Cathedral, Piazza Fontana is one of central Milan’s prettiest piazzas, and a tranquil alternative to the bustling squares of nearby Piazza della Scala and Piazza del Duomo. Tree-lined gardens and shaded benches line the plaza, but the dramatic centerpiece is its namesake fountain - a Neoclassical design by Giuseppe Piermarini, sculpted out of pink granite and inaugurated in 1782.

Despite its peaceful surroundings, the piazza hit the headlines for all the wrong reasons back in 1969, as the location for the notorious bombing of the National Agrarian Bank, a terrorist attack that saw 17 people killed, and a plaque has been erected in their honor.
