Portaluppi Churchyard - Milan Cathedral Square

Floor slabs made of LASA BIANCO® for the forecourt of the third largest church in the world

The "Sagrato del Duomo", the square in front of Milan Cathedral, was redesigned as early as 1926-1929. It was the architect Piero Portaluppi (*1888 - †1967) - one of Milan's most famous architects and urban designers in the first half of the 20th century - who created the template for the paving of the square with granite and marble with his geometric patterns specially devised for the parvis of Milan Cathedral. In 1996 and 1997, the cathedral square was completely renewed on the basis of the existing design. For all the white floor elements of the patterns designed by Portaluppi, Lasa Marmo supplied the corresponding laying elements and floor slabs.
