Tinted lithograph. Sheet size: 290 x 380mm (11˝ x15").
A fine view of the Porta Sempione, the city gate of Milan, Italy. Many pedestrians can be seen in the Piazza Sempione in front of a landmark triumphal arch called Arco della Pace (Arch of Peace), dating back to the 19th century, but its origins can be traced back to a gate of the Roman walls of Milan. It was the scene of several prominent events in the Milanese history of the 19th century, including the occasion in 1859, four days after the Battle of Magenta, when Napoleon III and Victor Emmanuel II of Italy triumphally entered Milan through the gate. After Philipe Benoist (1813-1880), with titles in French and Italian.
