“Life is in colour, but black and white is more realistic.’ Wim Wenders



fter the enormous success of the 2015 World Fair, Milan continues to delight its guests, and the Milanese, with a vast array of cultural events while maintaining its reputation as the capital of design and fashion. Increasingly creative and stimulating, Milan is imbued with a rich history and animated by a vibrant present.

With this issue of ‘Milan Luxury’, we end our reviews of the Ambassadors, who acted as the spokespeople of the event; all individuals who have played a significant role in Milanese life. Starred chef Ugo Alciati, a champion of Piedmont cuisine, is renowned for upgrading traditional dishes with an original touch of contemporary style. His strength lies in his use of only the freshest ingredients, like milk, the leitmotiv of these pages. This ingredient inspired the choices made by our editorial staff, from the cover to our columns on fashion, beauty, jewellery and design. Milk, is a reference to purity and minimalism, but also to softness and malleability. What could represent this theme better than a winter outfit? And since for us milk is synonymous with candour, what better than a bridal gown to interpret its style to perfection? La Scala étoile Carla Fracci, who has made ballet her raison d’être is also dressed in white: elegance and lightness are the key words that best describe this star ballerina. The colour white also embodies this cold winter season, helping us to appreciate an aspect of Milan that is so dear to the Milanese: a mixture of austerity and vibrancy, typical of a city that offers so much in terms of history, art and entertainment.

Milk | Softness | Purity


Taste of Italy Virginia Wolf said: “One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.” Now, more than ever, Milan is the right place to indulge in all of these. In addition to several of the most spectacular places where you can taste (and purchase) any number of specialties, this issue introduces you to chef Ugo Alciati and his ‘no frills’ cuisine, which highlights locally grown ingredients.


U “My ingredient for Expo is milk. Not just any milk, but the milk of the white Piedmont cow that is produced in Alpine pastures at an altitude of between 800 and 1,500 metres. A milk, whose flavour and aroma is different from any other milk,” says starred chef and Expo Ambassador Ugo Alciati, a champion of ‘down-to-earth’ cuisine, which emphasizes locally grown ingredients.

go Alciati Born into the trade, Ugo Alciati grew up in his family’s eatery, the famous Guido Restaurant, founded in 1960 by his father in Piedmont, between Monferrato and the Langhe.





was nine and playing in the kitchen with my mother and grandmother, when I decided that I wanted to try to make meringues: you only need two ingredients, I thought to myself, so making them will be really easy. It took two years of experimentation before they were actually edible!’ This is how Ugo Alciati, a Michelin starred chef and an Ambassador of Expo 2015, recounts the genesis of his passion. A passion encouraged by the fact that Ugo Alciati was born into the trade. In fact, he grew up in the kitchens of the historic, highly prestigious Guido Ristorante in Costigliole d’Asti, in Piedmont, where, aged only 15, he began working ‘full time’, with his brothers Andrea and Pietro. The surrounding countryside and seasonal ingredients are the guiding principles of the family’s cuisine (almost ninety per cent of the products used come from Piedmont), and Ugo has always drawn upon these principles, reengineering ‘traditional’ dishes, and upgrading them with an original touch of contemporary design to create a perfect synthesis between olden-day flavours, contemporary platings and intense, irresistible aromas. His is a ‘no frills’ cuisine that willingly sacrifices the spectacular appearance, often one of the hallmark features of today’s contemporary haute cuisine, and focuses instead on painstaking research, not only of pairings, but above all on individual ingredients: fresh, strictly seasonal ingredients which stem from his collaboration with carefully selected local producers. Even milk, the ingredient that Ugo Alciati chose to bring to Expo Milano 2015, is not just any milk, but one that is especially produced from the upper Valle di Stura, in Alpine pastures at an altitude between 800 and 1,500 metres. White “Piedmont cows are a very exacting breed. First and foremost, they are very particular about what they eat, when they go to pasture, they eat only the grass and flowers that they find along the way, and in winter, when they are housed in cowsheds, they eat hay harvested from the same summer pastures, which means that their fodder is not only natural, but also extremely varied. Consequently, their milk has a different flavour and aroma from any other milk.” In addition to this rare product, Ugo Alciati brought a menu consisting of ‘just’ 15 dishes to Expo, and offered the public a challenge directly linked to the theme of the event. “What would happen if the hundred best Italian chefs decided to limit the dishes they offered? The result would be such that everyone would feel obliged to follow their example to fight waste. With only 15 dishes on the menu, as opposed to the average 30-40 served at restaurants of a certain standard, the waste of raw ingredients would be reduced by fifty per cent. In my opinion, with targeted eco-sustainable production, reducing waste and all human actions that are out of tune with the development


TRADITION, INNOVATION AND ETHICS “Food is my language of expression. I like seducing the palates of my customers with the simplicity of my preparations, translating complexity into lightness, making a statement by giving good everyday ingredients the value of excellence.” Ugo Alciati interprets regional tradition without ever distorting it, serving traditional Piedmont dishes upgraded with a contemporary twist. For years, the starred chef has led a crusade against waste. “I want to reduce my menu even further and offer customers the freshest ingredients possible. I want my Villa Reale restaurant to be the first starred restaurant without a freezer.”

of food products, we could work on improving the environment. By improving production we would also improve our wellbeing and our lives.” The theme of waste, which has always been dear to the heart of the starred chef inspired him to create a project which, on the one hand, involved a group of small, intrepid breeders from the Cuneo area who still practice transhumance [the practice of cyclical grazing according to the seasons], and on the other, Eataly, the huge Italian food market and restaurant collection. “The white Piedmont cow produces just ten litres of milk a day, against the 60-70 litres produced by an ordinary cow: as a restaurateur, I could not use 4,500 litres of milk per day, so in 2011, Eataly gave us permission to open an ice cream parlour – ‘Làit’ – at each of its branches. There are now more than 20 of these and I am happy to say that we now manage to use almost all the milk produced. Without our producers and breeders we chefs would find ourselves at a total loss.” And, it comes as no surprise that, apropos of his interest in milk, the great chef’s strong suit is his famous fiordilatte ice cream, mixed there and then, in the dining room, at the customer’s table. Watching food being prepared and completed at one’s table are just some of the surprises that distinguish the entire menu of the Guido Ristorante, which relocated in 2013 to the elegant frescoed rooms of Villa Reale. The estate, which is set deep in the heart of the Langhe, is in the nature reserve of Fontanafredda in Serralunga d’Alba, is now owned by Eataly’s patron Oscar Farinetti. Formerly the country residence of King Vittorio Emanuele II, it is surrounded by an expanse of vineyards where the grapes used to make Nebbiolo, Barbera and Moscato are grown.


Born in 1967, UGO ALCIATI has run his family’s Guido Restaurant in Piedmont since 2003. In 2013, he moved his restaurant to the Fontanafredda estate, and became the executive chef of Eataly. In 2010, he founded the ‘Làit’ ice cream chain. He collaborates with Slow Food and the University of Gastronomic Sciences in Pollenzo.


Sublime cuisine

Milan is one of the world’s trendiest cities, known for its fashion and design but, above all, for its superb cuisine, lovingly prepared not only by Michelinstarred chefs but also at the exclusive restaurants of the best Milanese hotels… take your pick!

Palazzo Parigi

Alice Ristorante

FOR CONNOISSEURS On the opening page: top, a scenic view of Palazzo Parigi’s luxurious Ristorante Gastronomico in picturesque Brera; above, a glimpse of Alice at Eataly Smeraldo helmed by chef Viviana Varese.


ast year, as never before, food played a major role in the life of the city. After all, it was 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 fifteen addresses have been listed in the prestigious Michelin Guide.


In fact, the latest additions include three restaurants: the Tokuyoshi, which describes itself as the king of ‘Italian fusion cuisine’ and two upscale venues, both of which are located at two prestigious hotels in the Quadrilatero: Seta at the Mandarin Oriental Milan and the sophisticated Armani/Ristorante, at Armani Hotel. 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

Davide Oldani - D’O

Pietro Leemann - Joia


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, just last year, Iyo was the very first ethnic eatery in Italy to receive the highly sought-after star. Modern and refined, Ristorante Berton not only boasts some of the city’s most heavenly cuisine but also an enviable position in the futuristic Porta Nuova district. 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, 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 nec plus ultra of Italian haute cuisine, where heritage flavours are superbly expressed through the culinary talent of their chefs.

GOURMET EXPERIENCE On this page: the two Chef Ambassadors of Expo Davide Oldani (D’O) and Pietro Leemann (Joia); above, the Seta restaurant with a beautiful setting in the heart of the Quadrilatero della Moda.




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 top cuisine accompanied by several of the best vintage wines. If you’re looking for a splurge, the Armani/Ristorante, is the place to go: a gourmand haven renowned not only for its delectable creations but also for its aperitivi and brunches. In the Brera district, just steps from the magnificent Accademia, Palazzo Parigi’s Ristorante Gastronomico offers an elegant atmosphere featuring haute cuisine built on Italian tradition; while the Terrazza 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 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.

ocated in the heart of the city, it is not mere chance that Peck (via Spadari) is defined as ‘the Temple of Gastronomy’: an iconic reference point and one that is close to the hearts of all Milanese citizens. 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. Conversely, nestling in the midst of the ‘Quadrilatero della Moda’, il Salumaio di Montenapoleone is more than a delicatessen, it’s an oasis of soughtafter flavours (from fresh pasta to excellent cheeses) set against the

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,



N’Ombra de Vin

Il Massimo del Gelato

Pasticceria Cova

Pasticceria Marchesi

UNIQUE IN MILAN From the left, clockwise: Biancolatte in via Turati, 30 is an elegant bistrot where white is a dominant colour both in terms of the decor and the menu. It offers an assortment of delicious Italian treats and desserts: pasta dishes, chicken Milanese-style, fresh or matured cheeses and piadine but also ice cream, cappuccino and brioches. The sparkling window displays of Pasticceria Cova in via Montenapoleone, one of Milan’s oldest and most iconic pastry shops nestling in the heart of the Quadrilatero della Moda. Il Massimo del Gelato in via Castelvetro, a point of reference in the city for ice cream lovers. The historic seat of Pasticceria Marchesi in corso Magenta, which still retains all of its early 20th century charm intact. Don’t miss the new Pasticceria Marchesi in via Montenapoleone, 9. Located in the picturesque Brera district, well-stocked wine bar N’Ombra de Vin is set in a one-time Augustine refectory, thought to have been patronized by Mozart during his visits to the city.



don’t forget uber-chic Armani/Dolci in via Manzoni or Zàini in trendy Corso Como, the pralines of Neuhaus Maître Chocolatier and the chocolates of Turin-born patissier Guido Gobino. 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 and in via Dante.

The value of minimalism The pleasure of soft fabrics, the seductiveness of lines, and the dominance of white and minimalist shapes: these are the inspirations for this season’s winter fashions. More than words, this season’s clothes and accessories cater to the wishes and needs of fashion-conscious men and women.



of clean lines










Be pure

What colour expresses innocence and candour better than white? The colour of milk, snow and purity. Its nuances intuitively celebrate sheer femininity and at the same time highlight the ultimate in elegance. Here is an idea that lends itself perfectly to both day and night time looks; a rustling of lace and voile offsetting the female form to perfection, enfolding it in an aura of light.













YSL Winter white

During the cold winter season, falling back on classic black should be forbidden. Be innovative‌ make way for white! There are those who go for overkill, and those who look at it apprehensively. However, whether it’s applied to a warm woolen sweater, a soft silk top or the scented notes of an intangible powder, the light softness of textured, snowy colours like milk makes an instant statement of undeniable elegance.




It’s well known that winter is not everyone’s favourite season. Cold temperatures force us to wear layers and layers of clothing and summer seems like a distant dream. It’s impossible not to hanker after more temperate climes, blue skies and the warmth of the sun, allowing us to wear lighter, fresher garments. In this case, it is almost impossible not to think (or dream) about a delicate white silk shirt resting lightly on the skin, a dress as light as gossamer, an outfit that references the inimitable purity of milk … a pair of flip flops and, why not, a hat that demands attention, and voilà, you’re ready to step out in style!









Since the beginning of time, white has been associated with brides. Although, in the past few years, fashion has seen the introduction of other nuances, those who want to follow tradition cannot relinquish the classic white dress. Whether long or short, embellished with lace or other fabrics (and here the possibilities are almost endless), a virginal white bridal gown is an absolute ‘must’.












Simplicity is the watchword. Real beauty lies in a few touches that illuminate the face and reveal the true beauty of each woman. However this should not stop you from using the right products (for him and for her) to take care of yourself above all, even during the coldest months.



2. 1. DIOR. ‘Dior Prestige’ concentrates all the extraordinary life power of the Rose de Granville. This luxurious face cream regenerates skin from the inside making it luminous and soft to the touch. 2. ETRO. ‘Marquetry’ is a delicate

Now that winter is here, white is an absolute ‘must’(above, Charlize Watches). Make way for the collections of exquisite timepieces, that even in haute horlogerie highlight the multiple facets of this sophisticated and elegant colour because as we all know there is not only one shade of white! 52

FEEDING YOUR STYLE | ADVERTORIAL Pisa Orologeria Flagship Store

A new temple of watchmaking


he history of Pisa has always been associated with watchmaking. Today, Maristella and Chiara Pisa represent the values of a company which, over time, has become a reference point for timepiece enthusiasts and collectors from all over the world. A company that continues to renew and update its image: in January, Pisa Orologeria opened its new Flagship Store in via Verri with an expansion project that involved the addition of more than 1,000 square metres dedicated to forty brands that have made the history of Haute Horlogerie, from the A of Audemars Piguet to the Z of Zenith.

Maristella Pisa, Owner of Pisa Orologeria.

The space has been given a complete makeover. The gallery comprised of six arches with more than 15 window displays invites customers to enter the building where, on the ground floor, they will find dedicated areas to different brands, such as Cartier and A. Lange&Söhne, as well as a separate space called ‘Satellite’, designed to host brands that wish to express their identity in an unconventional way, as Vacheron Constantin with its sought-after Swiss-made collections. Alternately, the first floor is divided into four different areas referred to as ‘Salotti’ (Lounges): spaces reserved for the discovery and sales of sports models, complications, women’s watches and tourbillion. Flanking these lounges is the ‘Divino Room’ (a private room dedicated to niche brands) and a ‘Lounge’. On reaching the second floor, visitors will find the ‘Osservatorio’ (Observatory): a space dedicated to host temporary exhibitions, exhibits and watchrelated activities. Lying just beyond the Observatory are the ‘Libreria’ (Library), devoted to the culture of watchmaking, and the hospitality desk, which receives customers from the ‘Laboratorio’ (Laboratory), where experienced timepiece technicians, versed in the workings of all types of watch brands, are on-hand to offer customers immediate assistance.

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.


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.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 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 international designers. The brand recently presented a new jewellery collection infused with a unique blend of Made-in-Italy craftsmanship and avantgarde experimentation.

Austerity and grace

Empowered by tradition, and always abreast of the times, Milan is skilled at showcasing its cosmopolitan personality with discretion. Those who have visited our country at least once, and more recently Milan, recognize these two aspects of the city. World famous ballerina Carla Fracci epitomizes both the grace and austerity for which this city is renowned.


LA SCALE ÉTOILE Carla Fracci has danced on the world’s most prestigious stages, partnering with the most famous ballet dancers of all time, including Rudolf Nureyev, Mikhail Baryshnikov, Roland Petit (shown with her in the photo) and Roberto Bolle (in the photo on the last page).


En pointe “The language of ballet has more emotional depth than the language of theatre. Perhaps it is the absence of words that makes this so,” says the graceful Carla Fracci, a timeless icon of classical ballet, worldwide, and one of the Ambassadors chosen by Expo Milano 2015 to represent Italy.


iselle, Juliet, Cinderella, Medea, Swanilda and Francesca da Rimini: Carla Fracci has brought myriad characters to life, and even now, at the venerable age of eighty, watching her dance is a thrilling and moving experience. In fact, it seems that time has no way affected that elegant lightness that originally made her a star, and possibly the most famous of all the divas of La Scala, Milan’s temple of music and ballet. And yet, when she first started out, this native of the Lombardy countryside, the daughter of a tram conductor and a factory worker, who had been accustomed to living outdoors, playing barefoot in the fields, felt like a prisoner when she enrolled at the La Scala ballet school, to study ballet at the tender age of ten. “I was used to dancing the Tango and the Waltz, so I did not find ballet and the hard work that went with it appealing. I was chosen, by chance, by Ettorina Mazzucchelli, the director of La Scala ballet school. I took the entrance exam for admission to the first course, but, following the selection process, the teachers at the school were extremely doubtful about my ever achieving success because I was weak and scrawny, lacking in poise and unenthusiastic. The barre was a source of real agony. I missed the countryside and the life that I had left behind to attend La Scala. Then, when I was


FEEDING YOUR MIND | EXPO AMBASSADOR CARLA FRACCI was born in Milan in 1936. At the age of 10, almost against her will, she was enrolled at the La Scala Ballet School, becoming a star at just 22 years old. She has interpreted more than 200 roles and has performed at the most prestigious theatres in the world. She has been the director of the dance companies of several important theatres, including that of the Arena in Verona. In 2003, the Italian government awarded her the honorary title of ‘Cavaliere di Gran Croce’ (Knight of the Great Cross) and since 2004 she has been a Goodwill Ambassador of Fao. She has been married to theatrical director Beppe Menegatti since 1962.

twelve, I was cast as the girl with the mandolin in ‘The Sleeping Beauty’. Once on stage, next to Margot Fonteyn, I suddenly changed my mind. Dancing for an audience was something entirely different from dancing at school. In order to reach her level, I realized that I would have to work hard, and make the necessary sacrifices to make up for lost time.” Carla graduated in 1954, going on to take more courses to perfect her skills in London, Paris and New York, where, amongst others, her teachers included the famous Russian choreographer Vera Volkova. After two years she became a soloist, and, in 1958, aged just 22, she became a prima ballerina. The rest is history. Carla Fracci danced


on all of the world’s most prestigious stages, enthralling audiences with her performances in Moscow, Los Angeles, London, Tokyo and Havana, partnering with all the greats of international ballet, including Rudolf Nureyev, Mikhail Baryshnikov, Erik Bruhn and Roberto Bolle. In 1962, she married theatrical director Beppe Menegatti, who directed almost all the parts that she danced. “My husband continues to play an extremely important role in my life. He is not only a man of the theatre, but also an individual of considerable sensitivity and brilliance. Throughout my career and during my travels abroad, Beppe has always been by my side. When touring abroad, I always took my son, Francesco, with me. There can be no doubt that all this family closeness contributed to my success.”

GRACE AND DETERMINATION Lightness and elegance, discipline and commitment: the legend of Carla Fracci is associated with the romantic and dramatic heroines whom she has brought to life on the stage. One of the missions of the La Scala étoile was to bring the great classics of ballet to underprivileged audiences, including those incarcerated in prison, and in 1995, the famous ballerina staged a performance for the inmates of the San Vittore prison in Milan.

During her long career, Carla Fracci became Italy’s greatest Romantic ballerina, blending grace and drama to perfection. In 1981, she made her first film debut in ‘La Vera Storia della Signora delle Camelie’, and, in the following year, shot a long television series on the life of Giuseppe Verdi. In 1988, she was appointed director of the dance company of the San Carlo Opera House in Naples. From 1995 to 1997 she directed the corps de ballet at the Arena in Verona, and from 2000 to 2010, the dance company of the Teatro dell’Opera in Rome. However, none of these appointments stopped her from dancing. At the age of 66, she was cast as Hamlet in ‘Hamlet Prince of Dreams’, by Luc Bouy. At the end of 2013, she published her autobiography entitled ‘Passo dopo Passo’ (‘Step after Step’). She also

championed several political, cultural and environmental causes. In 1994, she became a member of the Academy of Fine Arts in Brera, in 1995 she was appointed President of the Altritalia Ambiente association, in 2004, she was named Goodwill Ambassador of Fao, and from 2009 to 2014 she acted as Arts Councillor for the Province of Florence. She has been honoured with numerous awards, including that of Grand Officer of the Order of Merit of the Italian Republic, but ballet continues to be her first love: last September – aged 79 – she performed at the State Theatre Russkaya Pesnya in Moscow in the leading role of a ballet set to music by Rachmaninov.





The polylobed display space of MUDEC-Museum of Cultures (former industrial area of Ansaldo) in the Navigli district.


Stemming from an operation involving the recovery of the industrial archaeology of the Tortona district, MUDEC has reengineered the existing spaces with blocks of squared off forms and a crystal structure – lit around the clock – that ‘bursts’ geometrically upon the area hosting it. An architecture that mirrors the many spirits that dwell in the museum, featuring a central hall of free inspiration which generates an inner courtyard with a characteristic ‘flower’ shape, a meeting place between cultures and communities.

Rooftop view

An evening view of Piazza della Scala from the rooftops of the Gallerie d’Italia, recently enhanced by pop-up restaurant Priceless Milan from which visitors can enjoy a breathtaking view: in front, the illuminated entrance of Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, with its dome and, in the background, the pointed spires of the Duomo. Left in the foreground, Palazzo Marino, Milan’s City Hall, recently opened as a museum space for public viewing.

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.

FEEDING YOUR MIND | TOP 10 The enchantment of ancient traditions

The Duomo of Milan is a masterpiece, rich in mystery and tradition. On the floor near the main entrance is a sundial, still visible with natural light, installed in 1768 by astronomers from the Accademia di Brera. Below, the “Nivola”, a strange gadget of ancient origin, thought to have been designed by Leonardo da Vinci. Once a year, in mid-September, it is used to celebrate the rite of the ‘Santo Chiodo’ (the Holy Nail). Thanks to a complex system of winches, it allows the archbishop and five priests to ascend 45 metres above ground to the apse’s vaulted roof to retrieve a nail, allegedly from Jesus’ Cross.

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, 450,000 visitors stand in line. 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!

City of water

For centuries, until the beginning of the 20th century, Milan’s waterways were a pleasant and convenient way of reaching the city. A recent restyling of the basin of the Darsena, the old mercantile port of city, included the renovation of its two banks with new pedestrian paths and green spaces.


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.

New hub

One of Milan’s oldest areas has been restored thanks to a urban project making it the most modern district in the city. The epicentre of the area, packed with high-tech stores, bookstores, cafés, pizzerias and discotheques, is the large raised square dedicated to architect and designer Gae Aulenti. The piazza is surrounded by skyscrapers, including the UniCredit tower, the highest building in Italy, and the multi-purpose UniCredit Pavilion, designed by Michele De Lucchi.

Art Whether it’s a question of important contemporary art shows or more ‘classic’ exhibitions, like the one dedicated to Hayez at the Gallerie d’Italia, this season offers lots of interesting opportunities. If you’re thinking of taking an out-of-town trip to Varese and its surroundings, don’t miss the sensorial exhibition at Villa Panza, a place epitomizing the heart of European culture.

SEVEN EXHIBITIONS IN ONE Seven independent exhibitions, in the form of notes or suggestions that explore different aspects of the most recent history of Italian art. An interesting interpretation of the past fifty years of contemporary art in Italy, from the Seventies to the present time, analyzed through 170 works by 70 contemporary artists.

Жизнь цветная,

Пища для тела

но реальность — черно-белая»

Вкус Италии Вирджиния Вульф говорила: “Нельзя думать хорошо, любить хорошо и спать хорошо, если хорошо не обедал.” Сегодня Милан как никогда правильное место, чтобы наслаждаться всеми этими вещами. В этом номере вы найдете подборку потрясающих мест, где можно попробовать (и купить) настоящие деликатесы, а также встретитесь с шеф-поваром Уго Алчати и познакомитесь с его кухней, тесно свя-занной с его родным регионом Пьемонте.

Вим Вендерс    


осле большого успеха Всемирной выставки 2015 Милан продолжает очаровывать своих гостей - а также коренных миланцев - разнообразием проектов в сфере культуры, при этом оставаясь верным своему главному призванию - столицы

моды и дизайна. Город, пропитанный историей, находит все более креативные решения, воодушевляемый динамичным настоящим.

Пища для стиля Ценность сути Удовольствие от мягких тканей, извилистые линии, доминирование белого цвета, базовые формы - это и есть источники вдохновения для зимней моды. Одежда и аксессуары этого сезона лучше любых слов благоволят исполнению желаний и вторят ощущениям стильных мужчин и женщин.

В этом номере журнала Milan Luxury вы найдете заключительный материал о Послах выставки, кото-рые не только стали ‘голосами’ мероприятия, доносившими до публики основной смысл происходяще-го, но и являются особо значимыми личностями в миланской жизни. Шефповар Уго Алчати (Ugo Alci-ati), обладатель звезды Мишлен, специализирующийся на пьемонтской кухне, предложил новую ин-терпретацию традиционных блюд, черпая вдохновение из современного дизайна. Его ключ к успеху - свежайшие продукты, такие как молоко, которое стало лейтмотивом этого номера. Именно этот ингре-диент вдохновил редакционную команду на создание нового выпуска - от обложки до галереи модных образов, косметических средств, ювелирных изделий и предметов дизайна. Молоко как призыв к чи-стоте и поиску сути, а также к нежности и мягкости: зимние образы идеально подходят для пред-ставления этой темы, неправда ли? Когда молоко становится синонимом непорочности, свадебное платье как нельзя лучше олицетворяет желаемый образ. В белом появляется на сцене и прима оперного театра Ла Скала Карла Фраччи (Carla Fracci), для кото-рой балет стал смыслом жизни: элегантность и легкость - ключевые слова, которые максимально точно характеризуют эту изящную танцевальную исполнительницу. Белый цвет прекрасно сочетается и с нынешним холодным временем года, которое открывает для нас Милан в новом

Пища для ума Строгость и грация Милан, знаменитый своими традициям, всегда идет в ногу со временем и каждый раз тактично подчер-кивает свой космополитичный характер. Если вы хотя бы раз в жизни были в Италии, в современном Милане в частности, вы согласитесь, что у города две стороны медали. С той же строгостью и грацией исполняет движения на пуантах великая балерина Карла Фраччи.

образе, именно он так дорог его жителям: сочетание суровости и оживленности ти-пично для города, в шкатулке которого еще так много рассказов об истории, искусстве и развлечени-ях.
