Observations

The Pusterla dei Fabbri was one of the smaller gates on the medieval track of the Milan walls. It was located along the road of San Simone, about where today Via Cesare Correnti ends. The Pusterla was demolished in 1900 to give room to real estate speculation, despite the fierce opposition of a group of Milanese intellectuals, including Luca Beltrami and Luigi Conconi. The remains of this old city gate are now at the Museum of Art in the Castello Sforzesco. The subject was replicated by Bianchi in his paintings. A painted version has been published by Biscottini in 1996, in his catalogo ragionato of the works by Bianchi (cat. no 555, with the title Tram a cavalli and dated circa 1888). Another painted version, even more precisely in relation to our drawing, is preserved at the Fondazione Balzan.
