Milan is many cities, one for each person who traverses its history and its many stories. There is creative Milan, which hosts international designers and opens doors for new talent, and then there is sporty Milan, in the stands of San Siro and the Arena Civica.
There are the art itineraries to enable voyages between the ages, meeting Leonardo da Vinci or maybe Giorgio Fontana along the way and, of course, there are the shopping streets, the historic palazzi which form a magnificent backdrop to the designer fashion shows.
We have traced some points on the map of a city in flux to share with you: special places to discover and diaries to fill with not-to-be-missed opportunities, for all year round or just for a season of the year or a special occasion.
Each frame of this page is an entryway to one of the many possible types of Milan; an enhanced exploration for those who live the city each day, and a conduit for those arriving in the city for the first time.
