Think Milan and you think catwalks, high heels and thousand-dollar rags wrapped around human coat wires. After all, the city’s international fame derives from names like Armani, Prada and Dolce & Gabbana. – Davide Dukcevich
“Milan is not suitable for amateurs” says writer Sandrone Dazieri, “this is why I love it.” And indeed, so it is, because Milan is a tough city, which tempers people, which tests them every single day. But it is also a city that offers hundreds of opportunities, for those who want them, for anyone able to catch them. The opportunity to be yourself, but also simply to look like and show off, the opportunity to enjoy life to the fullest, or just sit on the banks of the Naviglio waiting for time to pass.
All this applies to those who live and work in Milan. Tourists visiting the city can only perceive these aspects, as they’re too busy discovering Milan’s art and culture. So it’s those visiting Milan for tourism and business that That’s Milan! is aimed at. With a great little trick. This guide of Milan is written by those who live and work in this city, those who savor the challenge every single day. In short, we are not amateurs, we love this city and we want tourists to love it too.
Because Milan lacks in nothing, just ask and you will receive, make a wish and it will come true. From art to entertainment, from shopping to culture, from business to architecture, food and religion, please forgive us for the blasphemy. All this is described in That’s Milan!, a tourist guide about Milan, where museums, churches, major exhibition centers, the streets of nightlife and fashion, the upcoming Expo 2015, and the great sports venues, are always described with a pinch of irony and completed with tidbits that can help make this great city a friendly city for tourists.
