trivia:

…If you wish to return to Milan, the tradition suggests that you have a spin with your heel on the mosaic bulls “attributes”, one of the 102 glass designs that make up the pavement of the Galleria’s splendid central octagon. Once a gesture to ward off evil, it has become part of the Milanese tradition and has such a following that a deep hole has formed in the pavement. The Galleria also offers shelter to its guests from sudden rain or the hot sun, welcoming them underneath its elegant ceiling of iron and glass – similar to those of the Parisian train stations. click here
