Milan, the industrial capital of Italy, has always been a magnet for artistic talent. Leonardo da Vinci left Florence in 1482 for the Court of the Sforzas, and his ‘Last Supper’ in the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie is one of the masterpieces of the Renaissance. The sophisticated Milanese have always appreciated art, and their numerous collections bear comparison with anything elsewhere in Italy. Milan is also a city that inspires deep love and loyalty, thanks to its brio, its attitude, its faster than average pace (for Italy), and of course its shopping.
