DAAD Dantone Cut with a pair of golden scissors featured

The older fashion brands and designers become, the more “classic” their collections are ascribed. Not so with DAAD Dantone, the cutting-edge boutique operated by Giorgio Dantone that has consistently scanned the world for sartorial freshness, standing now at the epicenter of Milan’s innovative fashion set. Whether the threads you are looking for are French, Japanese, Nordic or nascent, your expectations on the limits of style are bound to be stretched, cropped, cut and perfected after a short stroll around their refined interior.

Pinacoteca di Brera 200 years in the making featured

This ancient 14th century Jesuit convent was turned into a prestigious Art Academy in 1776. Now comparable to the British Museum, the Louvre or the Prado, Brera Art Gallery hosts some of the best known paintings in the world. A few examples? The Dead Christ by Andrea Mantegna, Supper at Emmaus by Caravaggio, Holy Conversation by Piero della Francesca, The Marriage of the Virgin by Raphael, Madonna and Child by Giovanni Bellini and The Kiss by Francesco Hayez.

It’s better to visit it during unconventional hours, like lunch time, in order to avoid elementary school students or Japanese tourists battalions.

Pizzeria Spontini Simply perfecto featured

Spontini is renowned as one of the best pizzerias in town. Opened in the 1950’s, this pizza joint still follows the same special recipe as the day is began and it really is a winner.
There is only one thing you need to know when you arrive at the bustling yet cosy pizzeria- regular or large slice? What makes Spontini unique, is the fact that they only serve one thing- Margherita pizza. This may seem a tad minimalistic, but once you sink your teeth into the melt in your mouth thick, crispy base topped with tomato, mozzarella, oregano and anchovies, you will see why there is no need for anything else.

They of course offer a range of beverages, and lasagna is also offered at lunchtime, but pizza is Spontini’s specialty. There are three restaurants to choose from: the original in C.so Buenos Aires, another one in V.le Papiniano and the newest in V. Marghera. Spontini’s is a Milano must!
