Stars and successes for AlessandroRosso Group. The company, together with Seven Stars Galleria – the most exclusive boutique hotel of MIlan, that recently added to its spaces new events areas and a pharaonic suite - has in fact announced the created of a touristic itinerary on the rooftops of the Galleria Emanuele II of Milan.

The route, which will be inaugurated in April - just before the beginning of Expo 2015 - has a total surface of about 550msq. All restorative works and regularisation will be carried out under the control of the Council of Milan and upon approval of the Superintendance. Thus, on the 138th year from the demise of the Architect Mengoni - who designed the Galleria - his grand work will be completed with the restauration and the opening of the "third passage" which is that carried out on the rooftops of the same Galleria, from Piazza Duomo to Piazza della Scala: from the heigth of a breathtaking view. The promoter is Alessandro Rosso, successful businessman commited in the promotion of Expo 2015 and active in the hotel sector with the Seven Stars Galleria and the hotels TownHouse in Milan and Torino, and in tour operating with the brands Best Tours and Kuoni Italian. All the brands are part of the AlessandroRosso Group, one of the largest travel and incentive groups. The project of the opening of the rooftops walk found support from Architect Alberto Artioli, the Councillor of the metropolitan, house and property areas Daniela Benelli, the Public Works and Urban furnishings Councillor Maria Carmela Rozza and in the Mayor of Milan himself, Giuliano Pisapia. 

The Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II is 196 metres long and 14.5 metres wide and the passage-way on the roof will cover 250 straight metres allowing to observe, in total safety, even thanks to some rest areas. Access will be through two fast lifts found within a courtyard in Via Silvio Pellico 2, next to Piazza Duomo. Opening hours will run from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., thus allowing to observe the Galleria from dawn till dusk.
