In order to fight any further diffusion of Covid-19, people are advised to be very cautious when meeting others. A distance of a meter or so must be kept - and a face mask (better if surgical) worn when being indoor - in case of any personal encounters.
.:. Though Milan and Lombardy are still at risk, some behaviours are allowed. Not only shops are at work, and bars and restaurants may serve, but also museums, theaters and cinemas operate again. Starting from Friday, August 6, however, entrance to many indoor venues is allowed only to people who can provide one of the COVID-19 green certifications, in paper or digital format, issued in order to certify they got an anti-SARS-CoV-2 vaccination, healed from COVID-19, or passed a fast or molecular antigen test with negative result for the SARS-CoV-2 virus performed within the last 48 hours. Curfew suspended.

No need to introduce it. Everybody knows it's the first Opera House in the old continent. The acoustics of this theater - which you may have a chance to see while visiting the Museo Teatrale alla Scala - are even more legendary than its history.
The building dates from 1776-78, though it was effectively restored - extremely well, thank to the determined efforts of Milan's citizens - in 1945-46, after bombing during the Second World War.
From January 1 2002 to December 7 2004 the Teatro alla Scala was closed down for major refurbishment. Performances were held at the Teatro degli Arcimboldi.

Right in front of the Scala you find the City Council's headquarters, namely Palazzo Marino.

Looking at Palazzo Marino from the Scala, on your right is the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele. On your left is instead the Banca Commerciale, with, beyond it, the imposing but somewhat secluded Palazzo Belgiojoso.

Yet another important building close to the Scala is the small 17th century church of San Giuseppe, beside the theatre.
