Beautiful Milano

by Hot_Fudge

"Cooling off between jobs"


Milan is a metropolis and so it is rich in events dealing with the most
different themes, all year round.

As a fashion capital, Milan organizes many parades in which world-
famous fashion designers are present. Moreover the Milanese parades
attract many well-known personalities of the showbusiness and so they
become society and cultural events for the city itself.

Milano is also the capital of design and of the ?made in Italy?objects,
that are exported all over the world. Therefore you can find many fairs
and exhibitions dealing with this field (the International Furniture Show,
for example) and attract many tourists but, above all, many experts.
Moreover, we remind you the numerous art exhibitions, that are always
interesting and various and are organized both in Palazzo Reale and in
the Arengario, in various periods of the year.

"Milan History"

Mediolanum, Milano?s old name, was founded by the Celts
and it seems that the town?s name derives from a peculiar kind of
animal, a sow, which was half-covered by wool (medio lanae), and
seemed to live in the same place where the centre was built.
Milan has always been a very lively city, even if it underwent
numerous attacks, as the one in 222 B.C., when it was occupied
by the Romans, who transformed it in a flourishing urban centre and
then in the seat of the Roman Empire.

In 450 A.D. it was sacked by the Huns led by Attila and then
it was further on destroyed by the Gothes in 539 A.D.

The prosperity of the centre started again in the eighth century,
but it was in the Middle Ages that, under the government of some
archbishops, it gained a certain degree of independence.
In the eleventh century these archbishops slowly lost their power
and the noble feudatories transformed Milan into a rich and flourishing

Unfortunately, in 1162, Emperor Frederick I razed the town to the
ground and only in 1176, with the Legnano battle and the help from the
Lombard League, the town resumed its development. This victory
opened the way to a period of prosperity with the reign of the noble
Visconti family, in particular in the person of Gian Galeazzo Visconti,
first Duke of the town, who kept the power from 1351 to 1402.
In 1450 the Sforza family took the power through the military figure of
Francesco Sforza, who governed till 1500, when the town was occupied
by the French. The Sforzas continued to represent a puppet government,
also towards the other invaders who arrived after the French: the Swiss
and the Austrian.

The Sforzas were brought downl in 1535 and Milan was occupied by
the Spanish who governed the town until 1713 and then surrendered it
to Austria.

In 1796, with Napoleon?s arrival, the Austrian were driven out from the
town and Milan became the capital of the Cisalpine Republic.
Later Milan was given back to Austria again and only in 1848, with the
famous ?cinque giornate? (five days), the Milanese succeded in
expelling the Austrian from their town and then drove them out
definitively with the French help in 1859.In 1861 Milan became part
of the Italian Kingdom and the town started to develop and become
rich again.

Finally, during the Second World War, the town was heavily bombed
until the arrival of the allied, on 25th April 1945, when the conflict ended.
After the war the re-establishment started: industries and commerce
developed and made Milan become the present-day metropolis.


The most important green area near the city, situated in the northern
suburbs of Milan, is the Parco Nord, with its about 600 hectares,
that was planned in the 60s, but then was realized in 1975.
The park was born in an area that was initially highly urbanized,
provided only by a few green traces which had survived to the cement.
Later, thanks to the creation of the park, also these areas have been
reclaimed and included in the protected territory.

The first significant interventions to make the park?s areas become
green again were made in 1983 and today, 20 years later,
more than 150 species of different plants live on the 250 reclaimed
hectares. Today it is possible to walk under limes and horse-chestnuts,
near hawthorns and hazels and so come into contact with a nature that
has so much developed till it has created some real woods,
generally poplars and elms ones. Also numerous species of animals
live in the park and have increased parallelly with the plants?

In fact, the animals who live in the park are: owls, owlets and many
small raptors as the sparrowhawk. Then other animals present on
the territory are: the robin, the pied woodpecker, the fieldmouse
(a small rodent that is typical of the cultivated areas), the hedgehog,
the fox and the wild rabbit.

Travel Tips for Milan

Flower exhibition

by sierralyndon

If you are in Milan in May, make sure you try and make it to the annual flower exhibition at the Giardini Pubblici. Dozens of horticultural companies set up stands to display their lovely plants and flowers. It is not on a very large scale, but a nice way to spend an afternoon...

More Dash Than Cash In Milan

by Krystynn about Fashion and leather

The following stores are what the Milanese term as Stock Houses and Fashion Outlets. You'll be able to find even cheaper designer clothings and household items here.

Let's begin with....

Emporio Isola
(via Prina, 11 - tel. 02.3491040).
Located near the RAI TV station, I heard that many Italian VIPs frequent this store, which sells clothing on a wide spectrum of styles varying from elegant to pure chic.

Il Paracadute
(viale Piemonte, 5 - Cologno Monzese - tel. 02.2541216).
This store resembles Il Salvagente in terms of the wide array of brand names it offers. However, it's located in a suburb. Ah, what the heck... Hail a cab!

Diffusione Tessile
(Filati 6, Galleria San Carlo - tel. 0276000829).
Fans of Max Mara (like... ahem... yours truly) go gaga in this place. The store carries ALL Max Mara lines... yes, including Maxsport, Studiomax, etc. You name it, they have it. I loooove this place - and it's not just because I love Max Mara.

(viale Romagna, 19 - tel. 027490502).
This store carries a HUGE selection of designer brand names like Prada and Gucci amongst others. For shoes & accessories afficionadoes, you will go crazy in this place too!

Spaccio Maglieria
(via Mantegna, 1 - tel. 023490350).
For the cool fashionista who likes-to-look-good-even-on-rainy-days-but-doesn't-want-to-spend-her-whole-paycheck-on-clothes, this store has the answer for you! This place sells very lovely sweaters, including cashmere ones at LOW prices. What are you waiting for? Grab your purse and c'mon over to Spaccio Maglieria.

Tams and busses

by Polly74

Despite of the traffic and of the efficient subway net, trams in Milan are very used.
Being a tourist therefore having no need to rush it's amusing to take a tram and to go around the city...just to discover some corners sitting and looking aoutside the window

Fast and Fresh

by nomadig about Bar Erri

Bar Erri is a traditional Italian bar/café that is a good alternative for the McDonald's just opposite for having a quick feast and a cup of coffee.

There is a food counter at the end of the bar, stocked full of different kinds of filled breads. Everything is relatively inexpensive and tastes really delicious. The ladies serving you won't speak much English, but with gestures, smiles and some common words you can go lengths. They have also a lot of different coffees, soft drinks and juices.

Remember that you pay at the counter next to the exit. If you can't say what did you have, the staff will inquire themselves until everything is settled. And unlike in some tourist destinations, they don't fool you while doing it.
