Meet some of the central characters in this fascinating world and discover why Milan is so central to the global fashion industry. The perfect break for fashionistas of all ages!

Simona Milano has a degree in architecture, but she started immediately to follow her great passion for fashion. She knows Milan is a secret town, rich of silent courtyards, shady noble palaces and spacious workshops where amazing shops hide. Simona selects studio where skilled hands sew refined lace lingerie, the atelier selling foldable artworks for travellers or the manifold space of the most capable design talent scout. The thrill to stroll in fascinating places and at the same time to find out craftsmanship and creativity typical of a town well-known all over the world for its elegance is a plus not comparable with a rushed and restricted walk in via Montenapoleone.
