Soul of Milan

In the Heart of a Metropolitan City

| | | Milan — the driving force of Italy, a dynamic metropolis, the world capital of fashion and design — has always strived towards the future and change. It is a symbol of modernity and openness to the latest trends in every field. With its innate beauty and a thousand-year history, Milan expresses itself in an exceptional richness of artistic and architectural works — churches, monuments, and buildings that convey extraordinary stories.

Galleria and Corso Vittorio Emanuele II

| | | The so-called “Salotto di Milano” (Milan drawing room), is the shopping arcade that connects Piazza Duomo (Duomo Square) with Piazza della Scala (Scala Square). Built in neo-Renaissance style in the 19th century, it is considered one of the finest examples of iron architecture. It is home to some of the city’s most prestigious boutiques and restaurants. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II, on the other hand, is one of Milan’s most important shopping streets and connects Piazza Duomo with Piazza San Babila (San Babila Square) and the Quadrilatero della Moda (Milan Fashion District).

A Lifestyle of International Importance

| | | Art, culture, fashion, haute-cuisine, shopping, publishing, design; Milan has always been a dynamic and magnetic city that offers the best of any environment. Within walking distance from the Duomo, there is the famous Quadrilatero della Moda (Milan Fashion District), where you can find jewelers, boutiques as well as showrooms of the most famous designers and exclusive furniture brands. Near the Milan Cathedral, moreover, you can enjoy refined delicacies of renowned Michelin-starred restaurants other than the historic establishments for classic aperitifs and happy hour.

Piazza Affari

| | | Piazza degli Affari (literally Business Square) is one of the main squares of Milan, adjacent to Piazza Cordusio (Cordusio Square) and a few steps away from the Duomo. Not only is it a symbol of the Milanese economy, but it is the core of the Italian financial activities. The square is mainly known for the presence of the national financial market headquarter, the Milan Stock Exchange.
