Photography of Milan cathedral in the late nineteenth century and early twentieth century. Crowned king of Italy in 1805, Napoleon Bonaparte began the fulfillment of the facade of the Dome, the project was finished in 1814 by Giuseppe Zanoja. In the nineties of the 1800s he came up with the idea of giving a coherent facade of the building with the International Gothic style. Only thanks to the legacy of Aristide De Togni, was banished the international competition for the reconstruction of the cathedral. The winning design was by Giuseppe Brentano, but the sudden death of young and overcome feelings of romantic culture were decisive elements which led to the abandonment of the initiative in 1904. Only with the unification of Italy was opened the big square in 1865-1874.

This archival image we can see on the left side of the entrance bronze portal of the cathedral stands the historian of Livorno distillery Arturo Vaccaro. Stands the written Amaro Salus.
