About Galleria Vittorio Emmanuele II


It took me a visit to Galleria Vittorio to understand why many shopping malls and arcades in other parts of the world are called galleria. Named after the first king of United Italy, Galleria Vittorio is formed by two glass-vaulted arcades intersecting in an octagon which is topped with a glass dome. Below this dome is the centre mosaic shield of the mall.

To the west of this design it was suggested that I have a spin with my right heel on the mosaic bull “attributes,” one of the 102 glass designs that make up the pavement of the Galleria’s splendid central octagon. I learnt that taking a spin was once a gesture to ward off evil. I was not surprised then that a deep hole has formed on the pavement.

After taking a tour round the elegant shops, cafes, bars and restaurants at the Galleria, I had more than enough beautiful souvenirs in my “custody”.
