Leonardo Da Vinci's Horse - Review
In 1482, the Duke of Milan Ludovico il Moro asked Leonardo Da Vinci to sculpt the biggest horse statue in the world. The famous artist never got around to completing it, finishing only the designs. It wasn't until 500 years later, in 1977 that Charles C. Dent, a United Airlines pilot, founded a non-profit dedicated to the creation of the horse. Twenty years later the statue was unveiled in front of Hippodrome de San Siro. It's a fine sculpture, 24 feet high, but there is nothing else to see here, so click your selfies and move on.

Leonardo Da Vinci's Horse, Milan Reviews
Magnificent horse! Too bad nothing much else around.
This place boosts the Biggest horse Sculpture I’ve ever seen Worth a look For Race track meetings you will need to confirm locally But just to get beside this magnificent beast and grab a photo can all be done with out entry fees and is very close to SAN SIRO STADIUM
What a magnificent piece of art and collaboration of the ages. I'm sure Leonardo would be so proud of the effort put into making his vision a reality.
This is a gorgeous statue. Definitely worth a visit.
Outstanding piece of Leonardo's work that was rendered from Da Vinci's sketches (as it was never made during his time). It is worth the walk along the graffiti covered walls of the Ippodromo di San Siro. It is truly magnificent. The size and detail are amazing. A duplicate can be found at the Da Vinci Science Center in Allentown Pennsylvania USA. Read more in the inspiring Wikipedia article.
