Another very important stop of green Milan underground is the Cadorna FN stop.

The basic idea of sculpture is that of a train that enters an underground tunnel. The fact that the sculpture is divided into two parts ideally reunited underground, is a reference to the Milan subway, the means of rapid movement of the city: the thread has the same colors of the lines of the meter at the time of construction, in 2000. The masterpiece is a tribute to Milan’s industriousness and fashion, which has one of the world’s leading centers in Milan.
