Rivers and canals
Milan is not a city built around the path of a river. To make up for this lack, in the past, artificial canals called Navigli were built. In the Lombardy photo collection there are images of the Naviglio Maggiore, the Villoresi Canal and the Ticino river that flow a few kilometers away from the city.
Lake Maggiore, partly fed by the Ticino river, is partly located in the Lombardy region. The photo collection includes images of boats and the monastery of Santa Caterina del Sasso.
Busto Arsizio is a Lombard city in the province of Varese. In the past, it housed numerous fabric factories. Today in Busto Arsizio there is an interesting fabric museum located inside an old factory. Inside the museum there are the machines used for drawing, weaving and finishing.
Varese is a city on a human scale, full of parks and green spaces. The main attractions are the Park and the Villa Estense, now the municipal seat and several buildings built during the Fascist period, such as the Palazzo delle Poste, the Chamber of Commerce, the Civic Tower.
