The keys to discovering the Tortona District.


The Naviglio Grande dates back to the XII century. The towpath is lined by the fishermen's old houses today used by sculptors and artists for their studios or by antique dealers and craft workshops.

Close by you find one of the most lively and interesting part of Milan: the Tortona District which has become a reference centre for fashion and design. This area was once on the outskirts and abounded in factories of all sort later transformed into leading business centres in the field of creativity and art direction, hosting, organizing and promoting crowd-pulling shows and events.

In April the top designers all come here for the Fuori Salone del Mobile (Furniture show). You find several photographer studios, Armani has his Theatre and the Silos, the best architects of the world have set their creativity free and have designed hotels, museums, fashion show-rooms.

PLEASE NOTE: part of this tour is available every day, the other part depends on the opening time of each building. Write to me before booking it.
