The Gallery Vittorio Emanuele II in Milan is a covered walkway (or shopping arcade) that connects Piazza Duomo and Piazza della Scala with each other and with two streets (via Pellico and Via Ugo Foscolo) with two short arms perpendicular to the main axis. It was designed by Giuseppe Mengoni and was built in 1865 in an eclectic style, with grotesques, caryatids, moons and pilasters, typical of the second half of Milan. The statues that decorate it are the Milanese sculptor Pietro Magni.

Gallery hosts many brands shops , as well as famous cafes, restaurants, a luxury hotel and fast food. It is considered, with Via Montenapoleone and Via della Spiga, one of the seats of the Milanese luxury shopping.

La Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II di Milano è un passaggio coperto (o galleria commerciale) che collega piazza della Scala e piazza Duomo tra loro e con due strade (via Silvio Pellico e via Ugo Foscolo) tramite due corti bracci perpendicolari all'asse principale. Fu progettata dall'architetto Giuseppe Mengoni e venne realizzata a partire dal 1865 in uno stile eclettico, con grottesche, cariatidi, lunette e lesene, tipico della seconda metà dell'Ottocento milanese. Le statue che la decorano sono dello scultore milanese Pietro Magni.

In Galleria hanno sede numerosi negozi di griffe e marchi prestigiosi, oltre che famosi caffè, ristoranti, un hotel di lusso e un fast food. È considerata, con Via Montenapoleone e Via della Spiga, una delle sedi dello shopping di lusso meneghino.
