Milano! That’s where we recently went, because it was… wait for it… Fashion week! Okay, so that’s not at all the reason we went. But although we were told that all through the year Milan is full of fashionable folk (I don’t doubt that – hey, it’s Italy!), we saw some pretty far out people. Actually, some of them might have been aliens. Am I still talking about fashion? So sorry! Let’s get down and dirty with Milan!

Fundada entre 1554-1556 por Vespasiano Gonzaga como cidade ideal, foi pensada sobretudo como uma fortaleza, completamente cercada pelas muralhas que até hoje se atravessam para entrar e que com certeza naquela época representavam um dos baluartes mais equipados da Lombardia de domínio espanhol.

I think the thing I liked the most about Milan was that it surprised me. The OTHER Milan is a city in which opinions and ideas aren’t saved for notebooks and blog posts. One in which ideas and ideals are thrown on walls and store shop doors. The graffiti art in this city is incredible.

What I loved: From the outside it looks so simple. Just another country manor house, you’ll think and you’ll be wrong. The charm of this house that once belonged to the richest family in the area is that it unfolds to you slowly.
