  • Beautiful and underestimated this high monument (which altogether measures 22 metres) with whom Giuseppe Grandi wanted to tell the story of the five days that in 1848 saw the Milanese (nobles and people, States) battling with makeshift weapons against the Austrian field marshal Radetzky; and win. By a large granite pedestal of Sweden stands a bronze Obelisk surrounded by allegorical figures (which are also in bronze) – shaped by true-that take place in a spiral movement: a lion, five women, an eagle. The lion wakes up and ROARs is a symbol of the people rising against tyranny. The first woman, puissant, sinuous shape, with the naked back, her hair in a long braid, strikes a Bell where it is written in Latin, "even though I'm now motionless, I speak" and started to revolt, recalling that the 18 March 1848 all the bells of the city played in hammer-represents the first day. The second woman (the second day) covers his face with his hands while crying the fallen of the insurgency. The third woman, larger than the others, is standing, with arms outstretched, his hair disheveled, his forehead wound a bandage, and calls to the fight: represents the collected popular that characterized the third day. The fourth and fifth woman are wound together like a flag: the first shows the feeling of hope for victory, the other plays the trumpet to celebrate the victory. The Eagle with outstretched wings lifts off is the symbol of liberty conquered. On the Obelisk are carved the names of 141 casualties, while in the crypt under the base include the bones of the fallen, which until 1895 were lying in the crypt of the Church of the Annunciation of the CA Granda/Ospedale Maggiore (now University). The crypt, which is opened only between 18 and 22 April every year, is a very interesting, although bare and not in good condition, especially for commemorative plaques/signs, bearing witness to a Renaissance spirit, still very much alive in the late 1800s (the monument was inaugurated on March 18, 1895). The placement of this monument could only be the place where once stood Porta Tosa, i.e. the place where the Milanese had overwhelmed the last resistance of the Austrians in the fifth day of the uprising. Unfortunately, however, it is considered little more than an embellishment of a flowerbed median: hard to get up the pitch, if you walk (the most you'll pass), hard to watch it if you are in the car. A real shame for a Large monument which has spent more than ten years of life (from 1883 to 1894) with a fussy, borders on obsession; and that he did not see the inauguration.

  • Piazza Cinque Giornate, located at porta Vittoria (formerly porta Tosa), features a monument to the Five days of Milan, a tribute to the fallen of the five days of Milan in Milan. Was erected at the place where the popular forces had overwhelmed the last resistance of the Austrians in the fifth day of the uprising.

  • Classic monument erected on the remains of martyrs who participated in the uprising of the people, that our boys now ignore, for the independence of Italy. The satatuario complex.
