Powered by the three ‘Fs’ – fashion, finance and football – Milan is a cultural live wire and the lynchpin of Italy’s economy. With its twice-yearly international fashion fairs and a central circle of boutiques whose names read like a roll call of Vogue’s most wanted, it’s not surprising that the city has become synonymous with high-end shopping. Look beyond the designer stores, though, and you’ll find a heart-stopping collection of artistic and architectural treasures – not least the looming Gothic Duomo and Leonardo da Vinci’s 15th-century masterpiece, The Last Supper.
