For years I have had a lovehate relationship with the city of Milano. In the past I have told clients, if you only have 9 days, thenk skip Milano and get right to the lakes, but now my sentiment has changed and that something happened with the preparation for The Worlds Fair of Food- Expo 2015- Feeding the planet which is now in full swing at the Milano Fair grounds -October 31, 2015 . The city has removed her dull dusty 1940's gray mask and has replaced it with new look, which is fresh, and reflective of her position as #1 ( move over Paris) in art and style. The city's new identity is encouraged by the numerous publications which have been flashing her new look under our nose. You can't read Savour, Architectural Digest, Departures , Travel + Leisure or Conde` Nast Traveler without seeing even a mention of something happening that is very Milanese.
