In order to fight any further diffusion of COVID-19, public and private meetings are strongly discouraged in all the country.
People must stay at home. A distance of a meter or so is kept in case of any personal encounters. Webcams have temporarily become the default communication tool.
Shops, bars, restaurants, museums, exhibitions, theaters, concert halls and cinemas are closed till Monday, April 13 at least; so are schools and universities. Supermarkets, pharmacies, tobacconists and computer shops are allowed to make exceptions to the rule. Sport events have been suspended at all. More official news here.

Behind the cathedral and to its left there is Corso Vittorio Emanuele II, flanked entirely by modern porticoes. This is one of the streets with the greatest number of stores and movie-houses in the city, and it is the second largest pedestrian precinct in downtown Milan.

Along this street, at the height of no. 13, there is an ancient Roman statue that was once dear to the Milanese, but is today somewhat neglected. Ahead, to the left, there is the 19th-century church of San Carlo.

Corso Vittorio Emanuele ends in Piazza San Babila.
