Historically, Milan has long been an industrial centre for manufacturing companies. In recent decades, Milan came to be more known for fashion and design. It’s famous for the restaurant-lined navigli, the Duomo, the Vittorio Emmanuele Galleria, grand museums like the Triennale, and high-fashion Milanese brands such as Giorgio Armani, Prada, Versace, and Salvatore Ferragamo. Away from the centre, and off of the city’s main attractions, there is no denying the recent economic hardships felt in Italy. The city is painted in expressive graffiti, a visual impression of the city’s vocal and subversive youth culture. Small protests can burst anywhere, stopping local traffic. Caught in the intersection between luxury and the working class left from its industrial past, Milan is working to find its future.
