Milano Piazza Duomo


Contributor uploaded this marvelous nighttime drone video of Milan's great Cathedral (Duomo) and the adjacent public square (Piazza).  Completed in the early 19th century after more than 500 years of construction, it's the largest church in Italy proper (which excludes Vatican City) and the third-largest in Europe.  Dedicated to the Nativity of Mary, the Duomo was the subject of Mark Twain's classic 1869 travel book, Innocents Abroad; it was later similarly featured in Henry James' travel book Italian Hours (1909)
