Milan is the real Italian fashion, and its men’s wear week is where some of the largest and most influential brands in Italy show new collections. Step into a world of glamour for menswear and accessories with men’s Fashion Week Milano Moda Uomo, you can visit Milan and discover many events-within-the-event, the vibrant atmosphere of Milan’s Fashion Week, fashion labels and some of the trendiest venues in town.Palazzo Lombardia Designed by famed architects Pei Cobb Freed, Palazzo Lombardia houses the organs of Lombardy’s regional council. It may look like just a skyscraper anyone can spot from miles away. But the secret to this spot is that it may be visited on Sundays, from 10am to 6pm, for some seriously beautiful panoramic views. There are 39 floors to walk around in, so come and enjoy the enchanting skyline of Milan from the windows. Via Terraggio Garden This one remained closed for 70 years and finally re-opened in 2010. It’s a public garden amid what looks like a private house, nestled through an unassuming gateway in Milan. On the gate there are no signs, so this humble park can be a little tricky to find if you don’t know exactly where you’re heading. It is ideal to relax in on a sunny day and unwind in after contending with the city heat. Cannon ball in Corso di Porta Romana In 1848, the city went through the so-called ‘five days of Milan’. On these days, the Milanese people rebelled against the Austrian dominion that held sway over their town, leading to violent conflicts between the two sides. Today, there is still a cannon ball embedded in the wall of a building on Corso di Porta Romana. It’s a remnant of these battles that bears a plaque commemorating the date the destruction took place: 20th March 1848. Via Lincoln Via Lincoln is possibly the best-kept secret in Milan. It is a street which is dotted with colorful terraced houses, something which stands out as atypical in an industrial, business-oriented city like this. It was designed and realized around the end of the 19th century, in order to house the workers of a nearby area at affordable prices. Needless to say, these houses are now very pricey. Strolling up and down the street is free of charge and is sure to delight any architecture lovers hitting town. Villa Invernizzi Villa Invernizzi is a Liberty-styled palace that overlooks corso Venezia in central Milan, which used to be the street which ladies traveled up and down in carriages during the 18th and 19th centuries. Today it is regarded to have one of the most delightful gardens in the city, with pink flamingos, peacocks and ducks roaming around freely. It is worth a visit if tourists are looking for an alternative to Sempione, the famous city park of Milan.
