From iconic monuments and streets to legendary hangout spots, designers share with WWD their favorite things to see and do and where to go in Milan.
“The Duomo cathedral and Alain and Jeanne in ‘Rocco and His Brothers.’ The Duomo is the iconic symbol of Milan for everybody, but most of all for us coming from the suburb. Pictures of parents during their honeymoon in the Duomo square with pigeons are present in most Italian homes. The magnificence of the Duomo meets the Ghisolfa Bridge area, a former run-down suburb where all the emigrants from Southern Italy landed, the set of Luchino Visconti’s movie adapted from Testori’s novel. An unforgettable movie, set in a sad, gloomy and heartrending Milan.” — Antonio Marras
