More info

A few people know that San Siro racecourse was an amazing 1920 Art Noveau building and even less people know that there’s a 7,20 meters high, 8 meters long and 8 tons heavy bronze horse next to the racecourse.

Its creation lasted 500 years, and it was designed by Leonardo da Vinci at the instance of Ludovico il Moro in 1482, who couldn’t see any kind of results, except for a clay scale model. In fact, the project execution started in 1977 and Leonardo’s dream came true thanks to an American sponsor.

The bronze horse was established in San Siro in 1999.
