For music lovers the obligatory stop is in Piazza della Scala, with the homonymous Teatro della Scala, considered one of the most important in the world. The Milanese theatrical tradition is also found in other theatres scattered in this magnificent city, from the Teatro del Piccolo to the Teatro degli Arcimboldi, considered the home of the Cabaret. The Sforzesco Castle, built in the middle of the fourteenth century for defensive purposes, now transformed into an art gallery, is a treasure chest of history and artistic treasures. From the courtyards of the Castle you can walk to Parco Sempione, which houses monuments and historic buildings, including the Arco della Pace and the Palazzo dell'Arte, which is set up La Triennale, with exhibitions of modern art and design collections. It is no coincidence that Milan is universally known as the Italian capital of design, as well as fashion. This is the reason why many fairs, exhibitions and industry events take place throughout the year. On the opposite side of the park, Milan presents itself with one of the most beautiful districts of the city, Brera, animated by numerous restaurants, bars, antique shops and characteristic shops. It is here that the Pinacoteca di Brera is located, which houses one of the most important art collections of our country. Among the authors present: Raffaello, Andrea Mantegna, Piero della Francesca and Caravaggio.
