ilan is dressed to kill as it gets ready to welcome the world to Expo Milano 2015 with a plethora of events that will literally take your breath away. Held on the evening of 30 April, the inaugural event dedicated to the Maison’s milestone birthday, was hosted by none other than Giorgio Armani: 40 years of Italian excellence, impeccable artisanal tradition, unparalleled flair, quality and peerless style. In addition to the runway show, guests were also treated to a concert by revered tenor Andrea Bocelli, another example of Italian tradition known and loved throughout the world. On Friday 1 May, Expo, offering a global perspective on food, officially opened its doors to the public, in a bid to encourage a constructive debate on the universal theme of food and nutrition. In addition to Giorgio Armani, the patriarch of Italian fashion, ‘Milan Luxury’ will offer readers an exclusive feature on Chef Ambassador Moreno Cedroni, whose gastronomic innovations have won him countless awards and inspired food lovers around the world. Invited, like his other colleagues, to add an ingredient to the fabulous menu of Expo, Cedroni has opted for one of the most noble: extra virgin olive oil, a component synonymous with tradition and richness. A valuable addition, that adds a touch of class (and health) to every Italian dish, encompassing all things Mediterranean in just one culinary gesture. A bastion of peasant tradition, dating back to the earliest Mediterranean civilizations, the sacred aspects of oil are recognized in all cultures. Called liquid gold by many throughout history, oil is a priceless commodity and a symbol: it establishes a bond, it brings harmony. As with its fashion, its works of art and its endearing qualities, when it comes to oil, Italy boasts more richness and variety than any other country. It all comes together in Milan during this late spring season.

“And among the good things of the earth I set apart Olive oil, Your ever-flowing peace, your green essence Your heaped-up treasure which descends In streams from the olive tree” Pablo Neruda

of Italy Virginia Wolf said: “One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.� Now, more than ever before, Milan is the right place to indulge in all of these things. And while Moreno Cedroni heightens the flavour of Expo with his creativity, you can have fun tasting starred menus, or purchasing delicacies, either at the Expo site or in the city.


FEEDING YOUR BODY | EXPO AMBASSADOR “I’m enhancing Expo with extra virgin olive oil. I have chosen it because it symbolizes my region of origin, the Marches, and also represents the whole of Italy. I have chosen it because, as a cook, I consider it an indispensable culinary ingredient. Frankly, I wouldn’t know how to cook without it.” Moreno Cedroni, the inventor of Mediterranean-style sushi, presents oil: a sacred food of Mediterranean culture.

oreno

The owner of La Madonnina del Pescatore, a two-Michelin-star restaurant, Chef Cedroni was born and raised by the sea, in an area renowned for its gastronomic tradition.

DELICATE, INTENSE OR SPICY? “If I need a spicy, slightly piquant oil, I get it in Umbria; for something slightly more delicate, Liguria or Lake Garda. If I need an oil with a particularly intense flavour, then Sicily is my place of choice”, says Cedroni. In Italy, it’s not just about ‘oil’ but a fantastic range of oils. The Maestro’s favourite is ‘Raggia’, harvested and pressed within 12 hours, producing a slightly bitter-spicy oil, boasting hints of artichoke and almonds. It can be used in a thousand different raw fish recipes: freshly served “gioco del tonno” (left) and below one of his famous white tuna preserves.

M

oreno Cedroni says that his first food memory is “the scent of garlic frying in olive oil”. This probably explains why, this two-Michelin-star chef, acclaimed by the Wall Street Journal as one of the ten best seafood cooks in the world, when asked to add his ingredient to the Expo extravaganza, went directly to his origins, opting for olive oil, rather than choosing sublime white tuna or raw Amberjack. Because, he admits, you can cook without fish, but “without olive oil I would be totally lost” … we have a quality and variety that makes us the envy of the whole world”, and because, “simply by dipping bread in olive oil you can create a sumptuous meal, something you can only pull off in Italy.” Fifty-one-year-old Cedroni is the former enfant terrible of Italian cuisine: original and experimental but also ironic and unpredictable. After opening his restaurant La Madonnina del Pescatore in Senigallia (Ancona), in the eighties, he infused the Italian gastronomic scene with a breath of fresh air. Though he has always been an innovator, he swears that his whole attitude changed in the nineties when he first met legendary Catalan chef Ferran Adrià, who “taught all of us never to impose any limitations in the kitchen”. Cedroni still looks back with the emotion to the time “that Adrià served me Parmesan ice cream as a first course when I first interned for him”, titillating his taste buds and triggering a new desire for research. Now that he is a famed international Chef, Cedroni has by no means stopped experimenting: provided that innovation is based on the solid foundations of Italy’s rich culinary tradition. It therefore comes as no surprise that this Chef from the Marches is renowned for having invented “susci”, i.e. sushi upgraded with a Mediterranean twist. “I adore raw fish and I have always been fascinated by Japanese technique”, explains Cedroni, “but I found that the structured approach to making sushi did not do justice to our wide variety of Mediterranean fish. I believe that each fish deserves its own recipe: so I began creating alternatives.” He managed to come up with a new, wholly personal method of preparing raw fish, firmly rooted in the history of Italian cuisine. His favourite? Raw Amberjack served with a leek and lemon sauce, garnished with violets and basil. Tradition and versatility create an inspirational result. “All of this is perfectly represented by extra virgin olive oil, one of the oldest and most sacred but also one of the most versatile ingredients of Mediterranean culture. I use olive oil in all my fish recipes but also in any other dish that I happen to invent.”

19


FEEDING YOUR BODY | EXPO AMBASSADOR

Cedroni does not hesitate to define olive oil as “a valuable asset”, justified, among other things, by its ancient history. In fact, all Mediterranean civilizations considered the olive as a gift from the gods and its oil, revered for its multiple functions, as a bridge between the human and the divine. For this reason the Chef is proud to offer it as his contribution to Expo: “I am proud to be a part of the team of Ambassadors”, he says. “It’s a milestone in my career because the eyes of the world will be trained upon me. Extra virgin olive oil testifies to the best of our gastronomic and agricultural offerings, their tradition and evolution: it’s all a question of flavours, aromas, taste and a healthy diet. We should not forget that foreigners visit Italy for its history, its culture and its landscapes, but also for its cuisine: olive oil represents the beauty and bounty of our country.

Moreno Cedroni was born in 1964 in Ancona, one of Italy’s major ports on the Adriatic coast. Cedroni opened his first restaurant, La Madonnina del Pescatore in 1984. He is famous for having invented ‘susci’, sushi upgraded with a Mediterranean twist. In 2000, he opened the Clandestino Susci Bar in Portonovo and, in 2003, Anikò, the world’s first ‘fish charcuterie’ in the town of Senigallia. He produces gourmet preserves at his ‘Officina’. The winner of numerous international awards, he is a Chef Ambassador of Expo.

his year, as never before, food takes centre stage. After all, it has been chosen as the theme of the Universal Exhibition Expo Milano 2015. Milan, with its fabulous cuisine, of longstanding tradition, represents this choice to a tee: from the most creative to the more traditional, the city’s restaurants offer an unparalleled gourmet experience. Just think, this year, as many as fourteen addresses have been listed

in the prestigious Michelin Guide. In fact, the latest additions include Ristorante Berton and Iyo, the first ethnic eatery in Italy to have received the highly sought-after star. Three of Expo’s Chef Ambassadors helm starred restaurants: Cracco, the brainchild of experimental chef Carlo Cracco (don’t miss his famous eggs), Joia presided over by chef Pietro Leemann for discerning vegetarians and D’O featuring Davide Oldani’s ‘pop’ cuisine.

For seafood connoisseurs, Alice (at Eataly Smeraldo) offers a sublime, highly creative menu while Il Ristorante Trussardi alla Scala combines an inherent sense of style with unique flavours. Conversely, more traditional foodies should head to Il Luogo di Aimo e Nadia, while surefire destinations for those in search of tradition upgraded with an innovative twist include Sadler, Al Pont de Ferr, Innocenti Evasioni, Unico Milano, Vun and Tano passami l’olio.

In Milan, the uber-luxe sophistication of the city’s most illustrious hotels is appreciated throughout the world; here, the gastronomic offer is the ne plus ultra of Italian haute cuisine, where heritage flavours are superbly expressed through the culinary talent of their chefs. For those who prefer a more contemporary, design-oriented ambience, at Ristorante Oltremare (Hotel Boscolo Milano), both exquisite

and eccentric, the light fluctuates in accordance with the aromas and flavours emanating from its evocative open-plan kitchen (try the VIP room); on the other hand, the elegant atmosphere of the restaurant at Bulgari Hotel Milano is ideal to savour the cuisine of chef Roberto Di Pinto, accompanied by several of the best vintage wines. If you’re looking for a splurge, the Armani/ Ristorante, located in the city’s famed Quadrilatero is the place to go: a gourmand haven renowned not only for its delectable creations but also for its aperitivi. In the Brera district, just steps from the magnificent Accademia, Palazzo Parigi’s Ristorante Gastronomico offers an elegant, deluxe atmosphere featuring haute cuisine built on Italian tradition; while the Ristorante Gallia, at the recently refurbished Excelsior Hotel Gallia, tempts diners in with a gourmet menu focusing on prime-quality ingredients. For those in search of a slightly more ‘classical’ atmosphere, the Grand Hotel et de Milan in via Manzoni – the

24

favourite haunt of renowned composer Giuseppe Verdi – boasts two luxurious restaurants, the Caruso and Don Carlos, offering diners an authentic trip back in time. For a dinner featuring a view over the magnificent garden of the cloisters, La Veranda at the Four Seasons Hotel Milano is a must-visit spot in the heart of the fashion quadrangle; while the Sinfonia (SevenStars Galleria) not only offers first-class Italian and Mediterranean cuisine but also a bird’s eye view over Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II; just a little further one, the Park Hyatt hotel boasts the Michelin-starred Vun, where tradition and innovation coexist in perfect harmony; if you’re looking to taste the sublime flavours of Piedmont or Liguria, then Westin Palace’s Casanova is the place to be. Lastly, beyond blissful Milanese food is turned out by Chef Fabrizio Cadei at the Acanto restaurant overlooking the Principe di Savoia’s tranquil Italian garden, a fabulous dining spot, especially in the warmer weather.

Here you can find rare specialities inspired by the best of Made in Italy and not only. In fact, it’s almost impossible to

leave without purchasing some sort of delectable treat, whether this be a jar of caviar or one of its more than 200 blends of teas and infusions.

unique backdrop of Palazzo Bagatti Valsecchi, a one-of-a-kind meld of history, flavours and fashion: absolutely unmissable! Just a little further on, in corso Venezia, those who love this luxe ingredient should head to recently opened Tartufi & Friends Truffle Lounge, which offers this noble tuber (both white and black) paired with the finest offerings of Italian culinary tradition. If you’re rushed and don’t have much time to dedicate to searching for gourmand goodies amidst Milan’s myriad gourmet shopping stops, we can recommend two top destinations where you can find all the best specialities under one roof. If you prefer tradition (and a magnificent view over the Duomo) la Rinascente Food Market on the 7th floor is the place to go for luxury food gifts. For example, items on offer include more than 20 varieties of salt, extra virgin olive oils from the best Italian cultivars and barrique-aged vinegars seasoned with precious essences. A newcomer on Milan’s food scene, Eataly offers the best of Made in Italy against the scenic backdrop of a former, recently restructured theatre, meaning that you can make your gourmet purchases possibly while listening to the notes of a concert emanating from its beautifully preserved stage. Milan boasts a slew of addresses for those with a sweet tooth. We’ll begin with the storied past and unforgettable marron glacés of Giovanni Galli, which have titillated Milanese palates since 1911. A little further on you will find a more recent but just as soughtafter destination: Noberasco, for lovers of high-quality dried fruits and a cornucopia of other naughty sweet treats. And then again, Cova in the Quadrilatero or Pasticceria Marchesi (tantalizing chocolates and Colomba or Panettone during the festive season). Always on the subject of chocolate,

Dulcis in fundo, a special mention goes to the king of Italian deliciousness: gelato! There’s Ciacco for organic ice cream, Grom for the traditional kind, Amorino for decadent gelato creations and Il Massimo del Gelato for its myriad varieties of chocolate. Last but not least, Milan also boasts an explosive wine-bar scene, mustvisit spots to indulge your passion for Italian wines. We recommend three locations featuring three different tastes: trendy N’ombra de Vin which offers the best Italian labels, historic Enoteca Cotti, a must-visit venue for sparkling wines and first-class grappas and the innovative SignorVino just behind the Duomo.

magine a huge food market, boasting stalls displaying the best that Italy has to offer. And, at the same time, imagine a street, or rather an entire district, fronted by small thematic restaurants or pop-up kiosks, where you can grab a piadina, a slice of fragrant pizza or a cone of fried fish. All this can be found in Italy: scattered throughout the streets in the city or in picturesque towns, along the shorefront or in mountain villages. To begin to comprehend its breadth, you would need to embark on an ‘Italian Journey’ worthy of Goethe. On the other hand, you could try Eataly, which has gathered all these Italian marvels in a series of concept stores that are enjoying enormous success throughout the world.

The brainchild of 61-year-old entrepreneur Oscar Farinetti, Eataly is not just a chain of shops nor a conglomerate of restaurants, but rather a philosophy based on a different approach to food, and consequently, to life. Its formula (high-quality products, meticulous attention to producers and a joyful celebration of the Italian culture of food) has caught on in a big way in Milan. This is why, for the entire duration of Expo, in addition to two urban sales points (Eataly Smeraldo in piazza XXV Aprile and the one headquartered at The Brian&Barry Building, in piazza San Babila), Eataly will have another, hugely important space. Farinetti’s powerhouse has been entrusted with an important task, namely contributing to represent Italy throughout the world, with a pavilion of its own at the 2015 Universal Exposition in Milan. After all, as ‘One of the Most Innovative Companies 2015’ according to Fast Company and 2014 winner of ‘Best New Retail Concept’, Eataly boasts a format that has rapidly become international (with sales points from Tokyo to New York, from Istanbul to Dubai). But what awaits you on entering Eataly? As far as the sales points in the city are concerned, first and foremost you will find a rich, brightly coloured market where you can purchase seasonal vegetables, artisanal baked good, locally produced charcuterie, cheeses and yoghurt – with a special area for mozzarella, produced on the spot. You will also find meat and fish, oil and wine, 14 different types of bread and, naturally, the best, most authentic Italian pasta. For those wishing to sample their specialties in-house, the store offers an interesting array of ‘small restaurants’: there’s a coffee corner, a gelato corner, a chocolate corner and a pastry corner. The venue also hosts ‘just’ pasta, ‘just’ meat and ‘just’ fish eateries as well as a vegetarian area serving soups.

There’s a small informal cold cuts and cheese restaurant, plus a few wholly Italian gems: fried food, piadine and, obviously, pizza. But that’s not’s all. The top floor of Eataly Smeraldo hosts Alice, a starred restaurant where chef Viviana Varese delights diners with her famous menu. The Eataly pavilion at Expo will embrace a different philosophy focusing on biodiversity which Farinetti considers the real source of Italian gastronomic excellence. Its space, extending over 12,000 square metres, plus an additional 4,000 comprising a garden/vegetable patch, will be used to house 20 restaurants dedicated to regional cuisine. Here, for the duration of the 6-month event, several of the best Italian restaurateurs will take turns at titillating the palates of diners with their seasonal menus. The formula will include 80 different dishes each month as well as 100 types of wine, including full-bodied table wines and Italian bubbly. There will also be no lack of delectable thematic corners: from coffee to beer, Parmesan cheese to Parma ham, spumante to Nutella without forgetting pizzas and piadinas: two signature classics of Italian food, to be eaten at any time of the day.

Liquid gold: all the oil of Eataly At the massive Eataly market you can purchase more than 60 varieties of olive oil, strictly extra-virgin, to explore the abundance of Italian cultivars. You will also find some highly original offerings (including pistachio or truffle oil) as well as a selection of Mediterranean preserves (i.e. preserved in oil), from tuna to tomatoes. But let’s not forget that oil is also central to the art of frying. In fact, Eataly Smeraldo boasts a small restaurant dedicated entirely to fried specialties. Must-trys include the venue’s delectable ‘mozzarelline in carrozza’.

Long live the King!

Milan pays homage to king of fashion, Giorgio Armani, who in 2015 will be celebrating the trademark’s 40th anniversary as Special Ambassador to Expo. His creative brilliance and revolutionary choices marked a turning point in fashion history now known in the collective mind as the ‘Armani look’. And although the term ‘iconic’ is bandied about a little too often these days, in this case it’s more than justified.

Unique silver design

Design, tradition and technique are the hallmark features of this iconic silverware brand. De Vecchi’s cultural DNA is imbued with Made in Italy, craftsmanship and noble materials forged with supreme mastery at its iconic Navigli-based workshop.

T

he history of the De Vecchi brand dates back to 1935, when sculptor and engraver Piero De Vecchi founded his eponymous silverware workshop. His desire to experiment and innovate instantly became one of the company’s hallmark features and his works were displayed at several prestigious museums including the Triennale di Milano and the MoMA in New York. In 1962, the company was handed down to his son Gabriele, who introduced a new concept of lifestyle objects, infusing his pieces with a more contemporary aesthetic.Visionary designs, unique techniques and a clear expression of shapes transformed them into ‘living’ elements through exploitation of the reflective qualities of silver. Over the years, thanks to the talent of its founders and collaborations with prestigious international designers – from Gio Ponti to Patricia Urquiola – the brand continued to consolidate the legacy of its unique style. Following the brand’s acquisition in 2010 by goldsmith Vhernier, a new phase begun with the addition of new materials including brass, leather, ceramics and glass, crafted by highly skilled Italian artisans in collaboration with young designers from all over the world.

The collection features pendants, earrings and bracelets, in two versions: rose gold or rose gold and ceramics.

Elegance, sophistication and superlative design: these are the hallmark features of Patina, the epitome of Made in Italy excellence appreciated throughout the world.

D

escribing a piece of Patina furniture is like talking about a real work of art, the result of the expertise of the noblest Italian craftsmen. However, the most fitting term is uniqueness because each creation is absolutely unique and original, crafted almost as if to fulfill a dream, based on the tastes and desires of each individual customer, using only the best, highest quality decorative techniques. Each product is a pure expression of harmonious shapes and timeless appeal designed to blend in perfectly in any type of interior, from the most classic to the most contemporary. In fact, Patina’s new collections revisit classical styles in a more contemporary key, right up to the most modern early 20th century designs, such as Liberty, using only combinations of the noblest essences polished to a high gloss, boasting lacquering in an infinite variety of colours and hand-painted decorations. Ever aware of changing trends, Patina always looks to the future, tirelessly searching for new materials and experimenting with unusual combinations, to best satisfy each and every request, because creating a piece of Patina furniture does not simply mean creating an object but actually giving life to a real desire.

While opening its doors to the world with a series of extremely current challenges, Milan draws inspiration from the best of its history, not only by calling attention to its breathtaking buildings but also by paying a sincere tribute to maestro Giorgio Armani who, for more than 40 years, has dictated the style of the city, taking it far beyond the realms of his fashion shows.

Although Milan is packed with events celebrating all things contemporary, it still continues to amaze those visiting it with thousands of ancient, awe-inspiring places boasting a wealth of treasures. One such example is San Maurizio al Monastero Maggiore, an early Christian church, totally rebuilt during Renaissance times. Due to its sumptuous interiors rich in gold and frescoes from the school of Leonardo, it has been dubbed the ‘Sistine Chapel of Milan’.

Elegance comes from within

The name speaks for itself: Giorgio Armani is the king of fashion, an entrepreneur and a patriarch of style, renowned throughout the world.

iorgio Armani SpA was founded in 1975, with an investment of approximately 10,000 dollars, part of which was raised by selling Armani’s old Volkswagen. During its first year, turnover accounted for more than one million dollars. Its success was the result of the talent of Giorgio Armani, who was 40 years old at the time and had already been noticed, as well as the courage, “entrepreneurship and daring” of Sergio Galeotti, a 29-year-old publicist who had entrepreneurial skills that far exceeded expectations. In the space of just a few years, the two of them, fifty-fifty shareholders, friends, but also partners in business and life, rose to the Olympus of fashion. The Armani name became their trademark, thanks to the intuition of Galeotti. In 1984, a sudden illness resulted in Galeotti’s untimely death which left Armani so

Consumers are invited to participate and share their own stories about Armani using the hashtag #ATribute.

bereaved that he actually thought of abandoning the whole project. However, at that point, the legend had already been consolidated, and its history was irreversible. Fashion wasn’t his first career choice. Armani studied medicine for three years and completed his military service before deciding it was clothes, not bandages, that were his calling. It was then that this passion, that had always lain dormant, emerged. His approach to elegance was acquired as a child, when his mother Maria made clothes for Giorgio and his siblings, “clothes that were so well made that they gave the impression that we were rich even though we were actually very poor”. Armani says that his father taught him that “elegance comes from within”. Another lesson came from his sister Rosanna, who while raiding his closet during their childhood, observed, “that girls can feel good in men’s clothing”. These lessons were masterfully applied when, following the launch of the company in 1975, ‘the Armani style’ was born. “In actual fact”, Armani remembers, “my first fashion-related job, in the Sixties, was as a salesman in the men’s department at la Rinascente. An experience that proved to be extremely useful in terms of understanding what men were looking for when buying a suit”. This process of listening and watching resulted in the first creations designed by Armani, first for big-name brands of the caliber of Nino Cerruti, then as a freelance designer, up until the beginning of his partnership with Galeotti. The Armani style was the result of two ingenious hunches. The first was the launch of the unstructured men’s jacket. This was achieved by defying convention, altering its proportions and freeing it from the linings and supports that staightjacketed men. He was in search of a new informal elegance dictated by the times. His second hunch was to dress women in the same type of jacket. The result was a revolutionary image of a women in trousers, independent, powerful and beautiful on account of having acquired an extra measure of self-confidence. When talking about those years, actress Glenn Close, one of the first ambassadors of the brand, said: “I wasn’t consciously creating an image. I was choosing clothes that I felt comfortable in.” Forty years have passed since then and, in spite of creative changes, his designs remain faithful to the line; there has never been any hint of excess: no questions required as to why Armani is still one of the best-loved designers in the world! For many years, however, Armani has no longer simply been an extraordinary couturier: his name has become symbolic of a style that has been extended to all aspects of daily life.

GIORGIO ARMANI was born in Piacenza in 1934. Today, the Armani universe includes the Giorgio Armani, Armani Privé, Emporio Armani, EA7, Armani Collezioni, Armani Jeans, Armani Junior, Armani Exchange, Armani Casa, Armani Beauty, Armani Ristorante, Armani Hotels, Armani Fiori and Armani Dolci trademarks, almost all represented in Milan by the Armani Building in via Manzoni 31. Armani also owns the city’s basketball team. To mark his 40th anniversary, he has just opened a museum on Milan’s via Bergognone, hosting a permanent exhibition of his creations. The Armani Group is represented in 36 countries, worldwide.

FEEDING YOUR MIND | EXPO SPECIAL AMBASSADOR

First and foremost, Armani has differentiated his range of clothing, shoes and accessories into various lines ranging from classic to casual clothing for the very young to techno sportswear. However, King Giorgio’s interpretation of the world of fashion has not stopped here: there’s also beauty, featuring a line of makeup that is both natural and sophisticated, based on maximum attention to product quality, and elegance. To give just one example, the palette of Armani eyeshadows is a compendium of the designer’s chromatic research, featuring colours that are hard to find elsewhere, ranging from shades of sand to gold, but also unique hues of light blue or pink, unquestionably hallmark features of the Maestro’s style. Another trademark is his perfume. Take, for example, ‘Acqua di Giò’, the men’s perfume created in 1996, that continues to evolve: the latest version, defined by the designer as an “expression of freedom”, further imbues the fragrance with a more “assertive, citrusy and aquatic” bouquet. Armani has said that he considers perfume “a natural extension of what you’re wearing”. For this reason, he personally developed the product, in collaboration with famous ‘nose’, Alberto Morillas. The result is a perfume that, even today, is the most popular in Italy and the third most widely sold in the world. In fact, one bottle is sold every five seconds. Though satisfied, Armani is still dreaming about “developing a perfume that captures the smell of the sea, with its strength and ebb and flow”. In the meantime, he has once again revolutionized the scene with the creation of ‘Si’, a woman’s perfume whose ambassador is Cate Blanchett. It made its appearance in 2014, creating an effect at which Armani is an expert: launching a new trend and, at the same time, revisiting a classic which until just a short while before had been taken for granted. With the same enthusiasm that is part of the Armani philosophy, his company continued to add to its product line, expanding not only into the home goods market, with the marvelous Armani Casa collection, but also into flowers and even confectionery. And that’s not all: both in Milan and throughout the rest of the world, Armani boasts restaurants and hotels that have become new reference points for hospitality. He owns 3 restaurants in Milan: Armani Privé, Emporio Armani Caffè and the legendary Armani Nobu, opened in 2000 with chef/owner Nobu Matsuhisa, bringing a whole new trend to Japanese cuisine. His hotels, currently only found in Milan and Dubai, deserve a special chapter: based on the motto, ‘Stay with Armani’, these hotels offer a world of sophisticated beauty where fabrics and décor serve as

88

a direct reference to the lines and fabrics showcased on the runway. Colours, spaces and the choice of furnishings create an unmistakable atmosphere, because “the law of luxury”, explains the designer, “is not to add but to detract”. International stars, the very same who flock to his fashion shows, and for whom Armani has practically invented red-carpet dressing, also greatly appreciate his style of hospitality. These celebrities, some of the most famous names in the business, are characterized by an elegance that is as incontrovertible as it is discreet: they are those who have internalized the Maestro’s lesson. “Elegance is not about being noticed, it’s about being remembered”.

THE CITY AND THE WORLD Armani’s relationship with Milan continues to be special and intense. The company is deeply rooted in the city which, in turn, generously offers its spaces. Anyone strolling through the centre who happens to stop in via Cusani will notice what the Milanese now call ‘Armani’s wall’: a huge billboard (above) which, on a rotational basis, shows various aspects of the maison, in a sort of permanent installation. This year, in particular, the city will host a round-up of exhibitions (the most recent being dedicated to interior design, here on the right). Last but not least, over the past few days, the city has been enriched by a fabulous new museum in via Bergognone, named Armani/Silos.

Dizzy heights

The Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, located between piazza Duomo and the Teatro alla Scala, is the ‘Living Room’ of Milan. Now it will (also) be possible to view it from above: the restoration work conducted to give it a makeover in time for Expo will see the opening of an aerial walkway. Rumour has it that it’s absolutely spectacular!.

Behind the scenes

In the year 2000, the renovations masterminded by Mario Botta transformed Milan’s 18th century Teatro alla Scala into a technologically avant-garde masterpiece. The new ‘scenic tower’, standing at a height of 56m, 18 of which are below ground, houses stage machinery capable of handling the most complex and spectacular stage sets, even when the curtain is up. The most advanced prototype in the world.

The Duomo in Milan is the fourth largest cathedral in Europe, after St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, St. Paul’s in London and the Cathedral of Seville. A masterpiece housing countless secrets. On the floor near the main entrance is a sundial installed in 1768 by astronomers from the Accademia di Brera, placed so that it is struck by a ray of sunlight breaking through a hole in the opposite wall. A staggering 2,500 statues adorn its exterior: not only saints and martyrs, but also dinosaurs and pigeons.

A Leonardo that you might not have expected…

The Last Supper, the Codex Atlanticus and his machines. But then, there’s also this mysterious portrait, a small, unforgettable painting, attributed to Maestro da Vinci, entitled ‘Portrait of a Musician’. It’s preserved, together with several other breathtaking masterpieces, at the Pinacoteca Ambrosiana.

… and the one that you were looking for

Each year, in order to view Leonardo’s Last Supper, 410,000 visitors stand in line. During Expo, at least another 300,000 are expected. As an image, ‘The Last Supper’ is the most reproduced religious painting of all time and has been put on everything from mirrors, to mouse pads, to musical pillows. In fact, on entering the refectory, visitors are often surprised that this is actually what it looks like.

Hidden treasures

It’s easy to admire its exterior complex, possibly viewed from the splendours of parco Sempione. However, Castello Sforzesco hides a secret belly, consisting of underground passages and unexpected niches. Leonardo also features here, and the myths abound.

It’s the other face of the famed Pinacoteca di Brera, the Orto botanico and the Osservatorio astronomico. At the last census-taking, the Biblioteca Braidense, built at the behest of Empress Maria Teresa of Austria in 1770, boasted 898,377 printed books, 2,119 manuscripts and 2,368 incunabola. A truly wondrous sight!.

Picturesque corners

One’s first impression is a series of canals fronted by myriad stores, pavement bars and eateries. However, a whole different side of Milan is hidden along the towpaths of the Naviglio Grande, in the Porta Genova district: a peep behind its countless doorways will reveal several marvelous secret courtyards, home to a host of delightful artisan workshops, often open to the public.

Mosaics

You’re not in Ravenna nor in Piazza Armerina. You’re in Milan, and this is Sant’Ambrogio. In addition to being noted for its medieval architecture, a perfect example of Romanesque splendour, there’s something else to admire: a rare mosaic, that after various vicissitudes, finally found its way here.

Stadium support

The stadium in Milan, known as ‘San Siro’ because of the area in which it is located, can accommodate up to 80,000 spectators and hosts the home matches of A.C. Milan and Inter. Its structure is unmistakable: four corner towers and seven intermediate towers carry box beams in pre-stressed reinforced concrete to support the bleachers.

Leonardo da Vinci

Everything about Leonardo: an artist, academic, scientist and inventor. Three events offer insight into the life of the Renaissance genius including, believe it or not, an (impossible) interview.

A MULTI-TALENTED GENIUS The largest exhibition devoted to Leonardo da Vinci ever conceived in Italy, an approach encompassing all the aspects of the work of this multifaceted genius, both as an artist and a scientist. Spread out over twelve sections, the exhibition showcases paintings, drawings and manuscripts by Leonardo originating from several of the world’s greatest museums. Among the works on loan, particularly worthy of note is his St. Jerome from the Pinacoteca Vaticana which, by showing Leonardo’s approach to ancient and modern art, art and science serves as the icon of the exhibition. In addition to the exhibition at Palazzo Reale, during the same period, the city will also host a series of events focusing on the traces left by Leonardo both in Milan and outside the city.

Villa Monastero is one of the four magnificent lake dwellings involved in the ‘Camelie sul Lario’ event, together with Villa Carlotta in Tremezzo, Villa Melzi in Bellagio and Palazzo Gallio in Gravedona. Surrounded by a Botanical Garden abounding in rare species, in spring it sees the flourishing of a thousand camellias in bloom.

Photography Important, unmissable, unforgettable. From iconic celebrity portraits by Bailey to the masters of Italian photography, by way of the Parisian poetics of Brassaï, this spring three memorable exhibitions are set to take the city of Expo by storm.

AN OVERVIEW OF THE ‘BEL PAESE’

THE POETRY OF PARIS

Since the very beginning, Italy has been the favourite destination of photographers whose research has been focused on its beauties, its lifestyle, the warmth of it people, its dramas and the unusual aspects of its history. The exhibition explores this precious wealth of images in two parts: “Inside”, showcasing the works of famous Italian masters, and “Out”, dedicated to international photographers.

Throughout his life, Brassaï, Hungarian by birth and Parisian by election, a writer, photographer and film maker, had an all-consuming love for Paris. In “Paris la nuit” and “Paris de jour” he portrayed every corner of the city, every detail, every moment of daily life, “In search of the poetry in the fog that transformed things, the poetry of the night that transforms the city, the poetry of the weather that transforms beings.”

“ М

Из всех даров земли отмечу, оливковое масло,

Пища для тела

твой нескончаемый покой, твое зеленое

Вкус Италии Вирджиния Вульф говорила: “Нельзя думать хорошо, любить хорошо и спать хорошо, если хорошо не обедал.” Сейчас Милан как никогда правильное место, чтобы доставить удовольствие всем органам чувств. Пока шефповар Морено Чедрони удивляет гостей Экспо-2015 креативными идеями, вы можете попробовать дегустационные меню, отмеченные мишленовскими звездами, или приобрести деликатесы на выставке или в городе.

сердце”

Пабло Неруда

илан во всей красе приветствует гостей на Всемирной выставке ЭКСПО-2015. Насыщенная программа мероприятий буквально захватывает дух. Почетное право открывать выставку предоставлено Джорджио

Армани, который в этом году отмечает юбилей модного дома: 40 лет итальянского совершенства, подлинных ремесленных традиций, безупречного качества, безграничного таланта и стиля, не имеющего равных. Специальный показ Giorgio

Пища для стиля

Armani в день открытия 30 апреля продолжился концертом

Милан – столица моды Цвет золота, техники шитья, веками передаваемые из поколения в поколения, уникальные текстуры тканей и королевская красота невесты: Милан, сочетая элегантность и традиции, представляет моду во всей красе. Носите и блистайте. Как сказал дизайнер Ив Сен-Лорана: «Элегантность – умение носить платье и при этом словно не замечать его, не правда ли?»

не менее уважаемого представителя итальянских традиций легендарного тенора Андреа Бочелли, известного и любимого во всем мире. 1 мая выставка распахнула двери для широкой публики в попытке инициировать конструктивный диалог на тему еды и питания, которая волнует жителей всей планеты. Помимо Джорджио Армани, патриарха итальянской моды, Milan Luxury представляет эксклюзивный материал о шеф-поваре Морено Чедрони, который является официальным Послом выставки. Его гастрономические инновации завоевали ему несметное количество наград и вдохновляют гурманов по всему миру. Когда Чедрони и другим выдающимся деятелям итальянской культуры предложили добавить собственный «ингредиент» в роскошное меню Экспо, шеф-повар выбрал один из самых благородных продуктов: оливковое масло extra virgin, которое традиционно ассоциируется с традициями и богатством. Оливковое масло полезно для здоровья и привносит восхитительный финальный штрих в каждое блюдо итальянской кухни, охватывая в одном кулинарном жесте всю культуру Средиземноморья. Сакральные свойства оливкового масла, бастиона крестьянских традиций, восходящих к ранним средиземноморским цивилизациям, признаны во всех культурах. По ходу истории его называли «жидким золотом», так как оно считалось одним из самых ценных товаров. Его значение символично: оно устанавливает связь и привносит гармонию. Когда речь заходит о масле, как и в случае с модой, произведениями искусства и уникальными характеристиками,

Пища для ума Изобилие красоты Демонстрируя миру свои возможности путем выполнения сложнейших задач, Милан черпает вдохновение из лучших страниц своей истории. Город захватывает дух необыкновенными зданиями и отдает самую искреннюю дань уважения маэстро Джорджио Армани, который уже более 40 лет формирует его стиль, не ограничиваясь модными показами.

Италия может похвастаться большим богатством и разнообразием, чем любая другая страна. Все это Вы найдете в Милане в конце весеннего сезона.
