Viale Maino is one of the most upscale streets to live in in Milan, and it is worth a walk just to stare at the buildings that fringe this street.
Right off the corner with corso Buenos Aires, a recent building has a very interesting gate with geometric shapes cutout and a funny gecko handle.
A (rather well-off) acquaintance of mine lives in a building that sits a but further on on viale Maino, in her building’s courtyard I found this extremely funny mushroom-shaped something, probabily an air intake or vent. Oviously, the same function coud be accomplished with a plain tube, but this whimsical metal mushroom is much nicer and fits much better.
Milanese hidden gardens always hold surprises.
