Here we pretend to build a guide about things to do in Milan, with a cultural and entertainment perspective. In each place, you will find famous architecture and different interior design styles with a lot of history, glamour and fashion.
Duomo. 500 years in the making, the spiked gothic cathedral has an imposing interior that contains some magnificent treasures. Suggestion: climb the 150 steps to the roof. Here, “you can admire some of the 3,600 statues and 135 spires, many carved from pink Candoglia marble – and get a closer view of the famous gilded copper ‘Madonnina’ atop the tallest spike”.
Museo del Novecento and Gallerie d’Italia – both inaugurated since 2010. The Museum of the Twentieth Century houses “20th-century Italian and international artworks, by everyone from Modigliani to Matisse.” The Gallerie d’Italia “displays masterpieces by the likes of Canova and Hayez in a sumptuous series of frescoed palazzi, opposite La Scala opera house”.
Pinacoteca di Brera contains one of the most important art collections in Italy.
Teatro Alla Scala: Typically Milanese. Discreet, with neo-classical façade, this theatre has an opulent interior that turns its performances more impressive– featuring acres of red velvet and gilded balconies.
10 Corso Como: opened in 1990, in a rambling converted garage, is a whimsical fashion and design emporium – with bookshop, café, restaurant, B&B and gallery. It has become an essential port of call for anyone with the vaguest of interests in the fashion industry. Owned by former Vogue Italia editor Carla Sozzani, its interiors feature swirling, organic furnishings and monochrome abstract patterns that add up to a magical take on fashion land.
With its glass-and-iron dome, magnificent mosaics and marble floorways, the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele arcade is one of the world’s most glamorous shopping malls. Did you know that some visitors come to spin their heels in the famous bull’s testicles, part of a floor mosaic? It’s said to bring good luck.
