The neo-classical triumphal arch at the northern end of Parco Sempione was designed by Luigi Cagnola to hail Napoleon's entry into Milan.
.:. Its completion, however, was achieved only in 1838 by order of the Austro-Hungarians.
.:. It is in Corinthian order, and made of granite brought from the Lake Maggiore area. The arch is decorated with sculptures and surmounted by a coach-and-six in bronze, with Peace - to which the monument is dedicated - holding the reins.
