what is this building called?

this is little info about the building, it called "Galleria Vittorio Emanuele" it is in reality a covered street. The gallery has a Latin cross plant, and connects the Piazza Duomo with Piazza della Scala ,The Gallery was constructed at the end of the 19th century. Its author, Giuseppe Mengono, copied the idea from Paris and London where these galleries where very popular. Inside the Gallery you’ll find many shops and cafes. A legend says that stepping on the Tauro’s "parts" brings good luck. :)
