More About This Title My Secret Milan


This guide is an essential collection of insider tips on special addresses (shops, bars, restaurants, boutiques, hotels...) and unique events in the glamorous Italian city of Milan (fashion's world capital city), pulling back the curtain on the trendiest Milanese women. In a huge metropolis like Milan, finding something new and exciting just around the corner rather than sticking to the same old routes is the first rule of survival! So, get rid of the traditional old style guides and grab Marta Stella's unique book. Want to get a makeover in a living room-cut-hair salon, or dine in the city's smallest bistro, with just one table for the guests? Or perhaps you'd prefer to dance the tango with Cattelan (the famous artist who used this same dance hall for "Toilet Paper" magazine's parties), sleep in an art gallery, or invite yourself to a couple's apartment-museum? And what would you say to relaxing in a Thirties villa, savoring a Bertolucci film, or taking a break with... a flamingo? This special guide also includes anecdotes from eight contributors from the world of fashion, culture and design, who divulge Milan's hidden corners and their favorite places to go in the city.
