#The Green Park at the End of Milan

Facing Porta Venezia is the Indro Montanelli Public Gardens (Giardini Pubblici Indro Montanelli), one of the two largest urban parks of the center of Milan.

The Indro Montanelli Park is a wonderful park full of trees, greenery and flowers, with wonderful lawns, lots of benches and a lake in the middle. It has many statues and has climbing facilities for children.

On Sundays, it operates electric carousel facilities, bumper cars, and the like. Space lovers are also invited to visit the Nature Museum and the Planetarium.

Indro Montanelli, after whom the park was named, was one of the greatest Italian commentators. He was a historian and humanist, a rightist who was one of the few right-wing Italians who tried to prevent Silvio Berlusconi's election as prime minister of the Italian Republic as the right-wing leader in the country. The man suffered many persecutions in his life and attempts at assassinations, which stemmed from his courage to write his opinions, against strong and threatening forces.
