Map

Milan has a discrete charm. It isn’t a grandiose city that causes a sensation at first sight. It doesn’t have the skyscrapers of New York or the majestic boulevards of Paris. Milan’s beauty is concealed within the courtyards of its buildings in the city centre, and it is revealed in the depths of its history rooted in the Middle Ages. Milan is a multifaceted city that captivates individuals with different passions: design lovers, architecture fans, fashionistas, opera buffs and students of history. This map includes something for everyone, and the combination of places does not just describe one of these sides to Milan, but all of them together. It is the vivid portrait that emerges from the subjective accounts published in Domus Urban Stories – the Unconventional Guide to Milan, along with four unpublished interviews featured exclusively on the web, composing an alternative guide to the city made of stories, memories and details that the Milanese might hardly notice.
