Italy: Fashion and style in Milan

Italy's fashion capital Milan offers a number of great venues for stylish events. C&IT picks out a selection.

ME Milan Il Duca opened in May in Milan's fashion and design district, offering 132 rooms and two suites with private terraces overlooking the Piazza della Repubblica, both of which can be used for events. There are also two 100m2 meeting rooms.

The Pavarotti Milano Restaurant Museum, dedicated to legendary tenor Luciano Pavarotti, opened in June, with seven rooms and a menu featuring some of the star's favourite dishes. The museum has spaces that can be hired for events, dinners and meetings. It is located inside the famed Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, one of the world's oldest shopping arcades, where haute couture takes centre stage.

The Highline Galleria, which opened at the arcade in May, gives groups the opportunity to walk on the rooftops of the Galleria for some stunning - and very fashionable - views of the city.

"Milan as a destination for events is really cool," says Anupa White, director at Principal Global Events. "It has some lovely high-end designer hotels, such as the Bulgari, Armani and Four Seasons, plus some fantastic industrial spaces that can cater for large numbers."
