Shopping Experience

Shopping Experience

Milan is known for shopping. Beyond the well-traversed boutiques of Corso Como, however, exists the rarefied world of artisan workshops — those craftsmen and women with unique expertise, that, in some cases, has been honed over generations.

Possible stops of the experience include Cappelleria Melegari, a family-owned milliner or the workshop Paravicini, where mother and daughters decorate ceramics and tableware by hand. Other possible visits are famed Italian bikemaker Rossignoli, who can also organise bike tours of the city, and the graphic arts and print house of Fratelli Bonvini.
