I think it's cool to use a lesser-known highlight - for Boston FUDcon
'08 when we first started using the 'landmark' artwork, we used the
prudential tower in boston. If you don't live in Boston you might not
know anything about it, but it's something you'd recognize in the
skyline if you are in the city. Similarly, if the Duomo is a landmark in
Milan, people who actually attend the conference will probably come
across it while there, even if they don't know about it beforehand.

Also, aren't these other monuments folks are talking about outside of
Milan? I think it's better to focus on Milan.

I think you're right and let me explain to you guys about the italian monuments, here in Italy the majority of the monuments are church or religious art pieces, it is cause here in Italy we have the Vatican and the Pope for a long time (and we still have) so it's not only a religious thing but a cultural's one.
In the past the a lot of commitment are religious and artists work for them.
I think use the colosseum alone it's not right 'cause the colosseum is in Rome and it's geographically wrong use it alone talkin about an event in Milan, it's like use the Empire State Building for an event in Buffalo, yes they're in US too, but in different state.
For me the best solutions is use the second logo with some italian monuments, so we can show a taste of italy but with something correct (the Milan's Duomo).

Just my 2 cents.


Just my stupid opinion.
