Porta Sempione is a city gate of Milan, Italy. The name Porta Sempione is used both to refer to the proper and to the surrounding district, a part of the Zone 1 division. The gate is marked by a triumphal arch called Arco della Pace, dating back to the 19th century. A gate that roughly corresponds to modern Porta Sempione was already part of Roman walls of Milan and it was called Porta Giovia and was located at the end of modern Via San Giovanni sul Muro. At the time, the gate was meant to control an important road leading to what is now Castelseprio, in the Middle Ages, part of the Roman walls in the Porta Sempione area were adapted as part of the new walls. The gate itself was moved north, in a place that is now occupied by the Sforza Castle, the Castle itself was completed in the 15th Century, under Duke Filippo Maria Visconti, and the gate itself became part of the Castle. In 1807, under the Napoleonic rule, the Arch of Peace was built by architect Luigi Cagnola and this new gate marked the place where the new Strada del Sempione entered Milan.
This road, which is still in use today, connects Milan to Paris through the Simplon Pass crossing the Alps, at the time, the gate was still called Porta Giovia. When the Napoleonic Kingdom of Italy fell and Milan was conquered by the Austrian Empire, the gate was not yet completed, and the construction was abandoned for a while. The construction of the Arch was resumed, again by Cagnola, in 1826, for Emperor Francis II, when Cagnola died in 1833, his project was taken over by Francesco Londonio and Francesco Peverelli, who brought it to completion in 1838. The gate was the scene of prominent events in the Milanese history of the 19th century. On 22 March 1848, the Austrian army led by marshal Josef Radetzky escaped from Milan through Porta Giovia after being defeated in the Five Days of Milan rebellion. On 8 June 1859, four days after the Battle of Magenta, Napoleon III, the Simplon Gate is located at the center of a wide round square known as Piazza Sempione. It is adjacent to the Simplon Park, the city park of Milan.

Porta Venezia is one of the historical gates of the city of Milan, Italy. In its present form, the dates back to the 19th century, its origins can traced back to the Medieval. The name Porta Venezia is commonly used to both to the gate proper and to the surrounding district, part of the Zone 3 of Milan. The name Porta Venezia was formally given in 1862, possibly in the hope that Venice would soon join Milan in the newly born Kingdom of Italy, the gate was mostly called Porta Orientale, with Porta Renza being another widely used name. Stendhal, who lived in Milan, uses a variation Porta Rense, the origin and meaning of former names of Porta Venezia are disputed. Furthermore, it has to be noted that Milanese gates are not, in general, named after cardinal directions, as a consequence, some scholars argue that Porta Orientale might actually be a corruption of Porta Renza, rather than the other way round, as some have suggested. As Renza has no meaning in Italian, this is usually regarded as a popular corruption of another name.
Other candidates to be the form of Porta Renza are Porta Argentea and Porta Fiorenza. The name Porta Argentea, in turn, is derived from the name of a settlement in the area of Gorgonzola or Crescenzago. A gate whose location and direction roughly correspond to those of modern Porta Venezia was already part of the Roman walls of Milan and it connected Milan to eastern Brianza and Bergamo. Over time, the walls lost their purpose, and so did the gates. During the Austrian Empire rule, between 1783 and 1786, the walls in the Porta Venezia area were redesigned, and avenues and city parks were created in the area, yet the gate itself remained. The renewal of Porta Venezia was commissioned to architect Giuseppe Piermarini, who is responsible for a part of the renewal of Milan. Piermarini made plans for the renewal of the gate in neoclassic style, piermarinis work was continued by his student Luigi Cagnola, who built a first temporary triumphal arch to celebrate the visit of Eugène de Beauharnais. He proceeded to the design, which was still incomplete in 1825 when Emperor Francis II visited Milan.
The gate was completed between 1827 and 1828 with the addition of customs offices designed by Rodolfo Vantini, the neoclassical bas-reliefs and statues were added in 1833. Until recently, they were covered by advertising posters, in 2004 these posters were removed. Each building has doric porticos on three sides, bas-relief-adornated architraves, and a set of four niches each hosting a statue, bas-relief and statues, coherently with the building structure, are of classical taste, and reproduce Roman deities and subjects
The Gestapo, abbreviation of Geheime Staatspolizei, or the Secret State Police, was the official secret police of Nazi Germany and German-occupied Europe. The force was created by Hermann Göring in 1933 by combining the various security agencies of Prussia into one organization. Then from 27 September 1939 forward, it was administered by the Reichssicherheitshauptamt and was considered an organization to the SS Sicherheitsdienst. This gave Göring command of the largest police force in Germany, soon afterward, Göring detached the political and intelligence sections from the police and filled their ranks with Nazis. On 26 April 1933, Göring merged the two units as the Geheime Staatspolizei, which was abbreviated for a stamp and became known as the Gestapo. He originally wanted to name it the Secret Police Office, and its first commander was Rudolf Diels, a protégé of Göring. Diels was appointed with the title of chief of Abteilung Ia of the Political Police of the Prussian Interior Ministry, Diels was best known as the primary interrogator of Marinus van der Lubbe after the Reichstag fire.
In late 1933, the Reich Interior Minister Wilhelm Frick wanted to integrate all the forces of the German states under his control. Göring outflanked him by removing the Prussian political and intelligence departments from the interior ministry. Göring himself took over the Gestapo in 1934 and urged Hitler to extend the agencys authority throughout Germany and this represented a radical departure from German tradition, which held that law enforcement was a Land and local matter. In this, he ran into conflict with Heinrich Himmler, who was chief of the second most powerful German state. Frick did not have the muscle to take on Göring by himself so he allied with Himmler, with Fricks support, Himmler took over the political police of state after state. Concerned that Diels was not ruthless enough to counteract the power of the Sturmabteilung, Göring handed over control of the Gestapo to Himmler on 20 April 1934. Also on that date, Hitler appointed Himmler chief of all German police outside Prussia, named chief of the Gestapo by Himmler on 22 April 1934, continued as head of the SS Security Service.
Himmler wanted to free himself entirely from Roehm, who he viewed as an obstacle, roehms position was menacing as upwards of over 4. Several Nazi chieftains, among them Goering, Joseph Goebbels, Rudolf Hess, both the SD and Gestapo released information concerning an imminent putsch by the SA. Once persuaded, Hitler acted by setting Himmlers SS into action, on 17 June 1936, Hitler decreed the unification of all police forces in the Reich and named Himmler as Chief of German Police. This action effectively merged the police into the SS and removed it from Fricks control, Himmler was nominally subordinate to Frick as police chief, but as Reichsführer-SS, he answered only to Hitler
