What’s the Arch of Peace?
The Arch of Peace is one of Milan’s most iconic monuments. Built in 1807, under Napoleonic rule, this new gate marked the place where the new main road entered Milan. This road, still in use today, connects Milan to Paris through the Simplon Pass, crossing the Alps. When the Napoleonic Kingdom of Italy fell, and the Austrian Empire conquered Milan, the gate still needed to be completed, and the construction was abandoned for a while. The construction of the Arch was resumed in 1826, for Emperor Francis II, who dedicated the monument to the 1815 Congress of Vienna and brought it to completion in 1838. The gate has been the scene of several prominent events in Italian history ever since.
