City of Milan


Two of the world’s major football (soccer) teams, A.C. Milan and F.C. Internazionale Milano, call Milan home.


Milan is widely regarded as a global capital industrial design, fashion, and architecture. Modern skyscrapers, such as the Pirelli Tower and the Torre Velasca were built, and artists such as Bruno Munari, Lucio Fontana, Enrico Castellani, and Piero Manzoni were attracted to the city.


Milan is also regarded as one of the fashion capitals of the world, along with New York City, Paris, and London. The Italian prêt-à-porter industry is most present in Milan as many of the most famous Italian fashion brands, such as Valentino, Versace, Prada, Armani, and Dolce & Gabbana are headquartered in the city.
