Ciao, ragazzi e ragazze! I am happy to share with you today my first look from Milan Fashion Week. Did I tell you how much we enjoyed Milan during Fashion Week? Italy’s capital of fashion is wonderful, with its unique style of combining chic with modern, is an internationally accepted arbiter of taste in fashion and design and a serious sense of history and place. Milan’s centerpiece is its magnificent gothic cathedral the “Duomo”, which is the third biggest church in Europe. The cathedral lies at the geographical heart of this one-time Imperial Roman capital, and expresses the love of beauty and power that still drives the city today. Art collections old and new, unparalleled shopping, one of Europe’s biggest trade-fair complexes, sparkling nightlife, the prestige of opera at La Scala, the mark of Leonardo da Vinci’s genius, a religious addiction to il calcio and endless opportunities to eat the best of Lombard and Italian food make Milan much more than the puritanically work-obsessed city it is often portrayed as.
There are so many things you can do in Milan that you need at least one week to do them all. You can visit Teatro alla Scala, The Last Supper, Villa Necchi Campiglio, some classic art galleries as Pinacoteca di Brera or Pinacoteca Ambrosiana, Museo del Novecento, Castello Sforzesco, Sant’Ambrogio church, shopping in Golden Rectangle, take a tour of the Duomo, take a ride with the old trams, lunch with the locals at Luini, navigate the Navigli waterways and of course, enjoy the magnificent shows during the Fashion Week 😀
We’ll definetely come back in September to this beautiful city. Enjoy the photos and see you next week with a new look! Ciao!
