milan feature

Milan is a concoction of flavours, fashion trends, architecture and industry.  The city is truly a product of  its inhabitants – considered some of the best artisans, architects, chefs and fashion designers on the planet.

Italians possess a detail-oriented capacity to work and create, which is what makes the Mediterranean country a world leader in creative design and innovation. Few other places do this fact more justice than the artistically chaotic and urban city of Milan.

The historical centre of Milan is the beating heart of these traditions, which fan out in all directions from the Piazza del Duomo. Milan offers it all, without ever deviating from its traditional retro-chic stamp, striking a perfect balance with its fashionista industriousness, all within the embrace of ruins from the 19th and 20th century.
