ENGLISH | ITALIANO Contemporary art meets architecture in places such as Pirelli HangarBicocca, a non-profit foundation founded in 2004 in Milan by the conversion of a former industrial space.

Come and See Milan | Palazzo Clerici e Palazzo Serbelloni

ENGLISH | ITALIANO Milan has plenty of secret treasures that can’t be visited very often by people. Hidden gardens and ancient aristocratic builidings that the city have been deprived of. Sometimes these places can be visited thanks to occasional openings and I took advantage of the design Week to see Palazzo Clerici and Palazzo Serbelloni and obviously I took some snaps of these amazing locations.

Sometimes the outcome is quite pleasing as the Bershka number shown in the photos below that I bought recently. I paired these jeans with a Zara blouse and shoes by Mango, ispired to the well-known and editors favourite shoes by Maryam Nassir Zadeh, to create an outfit with vaguely boho.
