Milan Encounter

Donna researched and wrote this first edition pocket guide to Italy’s fashion, design and business capital.

She uncovers the city’s vibrant contemporary art scene, its lesser known house museums, the rituals of an opera at La Scala, Lombardy’s rich food and wine heritage, and naturally, the city’s endless shopping¬†opportunities.

It also includes interviews with some of the city’s most interesting citizens, including veteran playwright and political activist Dario Fo, Giovanna Castiglioni, daughter of iconic designer Achille Castiglioni and manager of his studio museum, and curators Roberta Tenconi and Chiara¬†Agnello.
