Always Trending: Milan Is Beauty from the Past and Inspiration for the Future

Milan is Italy’s cosmopolis: a sprawling fusion of innovation, commerce, creativity, and style. Once the capital of the Ancient Roman Empire, today Milan stands apart as the third-largest economy in Europe, boasts Milan Fashion Week, and is the fifth-most Michelin-starred city in the world. The city has a habit of looking towards the future with architectural triumphs such as its lush Vertical Forest and the innovative Prada Foundation, and global events such as the Milan Expo in 2015 and the 2026 Winter Olympics. However, Milan takes care of its past, too, acting as custodian to international landmarks such as La Scala opera house, the iconic gothic Duomo, da Vinci’s “The Last Supper” and Navigli canals, and the art-deco Central Railway station. Whether enjoying an aperitivo in the historical Brera neighborhood or chic nightlife in the city center, it’s easy to imagine the city’s fierce spirit through the ages.

laugh often,
love much."

I can really still appreciate that every time I come back to Milan, there is something new to see: it’s exactly what you would expect from an international cosmopolitan city, but with Italian flair.”

“Milan is a true metropolis: strong and fearless but welcoming, too. Little by little, I came to realize that I could become someone here.”
