Milan is fashion, culture, theatre, design. Milan is all of this and something else besides. The second largest Italian city in terms of population, with almost 1.5 million inhabitants, it is a real European metropolis that excels in various important sectors, driving the national economy.
A point of reference for business people, designers, photographers, artists – it represents, for Italy, the perfect place to be able to do something unique and different. The centre is dominated by the marvellous gothic Duomo and the superb Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, a magnificent example of European Belle Epoque in glass and wrought iron. Sforza Castle is the historical and military symbol of the city, a place of institutions and exhibitions, while the Teatro alla Scala is the temple of opera and classical music, one of the most famous theatres in the world. And then there’s contemporary Milan, the Milan of the twentieth century, an extraordinary century to be retraced through a visit to the Museum of the same name, one of the most interesting in Italy. The Milan to be explored on foot in the bars of the poor neighbourhoods sung about by Gaber, the Milan of the Teatro Strehler and the Teatro Piccolo, of the literature of Manzoni and Dario Fo. Not to mention the canals and the dockyard, brought back to life and now a focal point of Milan’s nightlife.
