About MilanoLocated in heart of the Po valley, Milano is the regional capital of Lombardia. Surpassed in size only by Roma, Milano is rightfully recognized as Italyâ€™s richest and most industrialized city. Wealthy and cosmopolitan, it embraces tradition, enjoys sophistication and ambition in equal measure. Milano is the city ot the La Scala theatre, with the most famous opera prigram in the world. Among the many museums and exhibits, it is the home of Leonardo Da Vinciâ€™s Last Supper, which miraculously survived World War II. Milano is also famous for its Navigli district, a network of canals that were used for navigation and irrigation purposes. These canals greatly boosted the trade between the north and south. The cityâ€™s enduring emblem is the gilded statue of the Virgin Mary, at the very top pf the stunning Cathedral (Il Duomo). The cityâ€™s road geometry is built around the historical center, as it radiatesout of the Cathedral, with a star-shaped network of arteries that spread through modern suburbs all the way to the ring-shaped freeway that surrounds it. Milano is the heart of Italian fashion and twice a year it becomes the capital of fashion, when it presents the spring and autumn collections. But Milano has carefully guarded its reputation also for flair, drama and creativity.
