The Five Days of Milan were from 18 and 22 March 1848, the dates of the uprising that saw the region shake off the Austrian dominion. This monument was built to commemorate those days. To make way for it, the Porta Tosa that stood here had to be torn down. The monument is the design and work of Giuseppe Grandi, but it was officially opened in 1895, just after his death. It took him 14 years to carve the monument, which has allegorical female statues, each one representing one of the five days. A lion at the base of the obelisk rises against an eagle. Under the monument are the bones of those who died in the fighting; their names are inscribed on the obelisk.
