Designed in 1800 by Pietro Carrera, this shopping arcade is perfect for those who love antiques, art and second hand book shops. While ambling around the shops, you’ll also be able to admire the architecture of the building, which has influences from the Renaissance and baroque periods, while encompassing the Parisian Art Nouveau style. During the 19th century, leisure and entertainment spaces like these were appearing all over Europe as dedicated spaces in which the Bourgeoisie could spend their spare time socialising. The discovery of iron at this time also influenced architecture, and allowed architects to break away from the limits of small timber structures and instead create vast open spaces made up of iron and glass. The centre of Galleria Subalpina demonstrates this, with a light-filled tunnel where you can sit and enjoy a coffee after a busy day browsing the shops.
