Breakfast at the hotel. You will begin the day with a glamorous stroll through the streets of the world-famous Quadrilatero Della Moda. Composed of the Via Montenapoleone, Via Della Spiga, Corso Venezia, and Via Manzoni, considered the sixth most expensive shopping street in the world, this area is a must-see for all fashion lovers. Then, you will head to Corso Como, one of Milano`s trendiest spaces. Here, you will visit the atelier of one of our fashion «enfant prodiges», an expert spokesperson for the highest Italian fashion standards, for a private Fashion Workshop. In this workshop, you will witness the making process of a pure Made in Italy creation, and you will be able to see exclusive patterns and models, touch the fabrics and maybe even create a piece yourself!

Free time for lunch.
In the afternoon, you will visit the Laboratori Della Scala – ex Atelier Ansaldo, where you will get to see over 60,000 stage costumes, sets, sculptures, and furnishings that have made the performances of the Teatro Alla Scala. You will embark on a journey into the excellence of the artisan tradition, where every costume, every detail, every detail of the scene has the preciousness of a unique product handmade and constitutes a real-world of art in and behind the world of theater.(The guided tour of the ex Ansaldo Scala Laboratories is only possible on Tuesdays and Thursdays.)
After that, you will head to Armani/Silos, the headquarters for the iconic luxury brand Armani. You will discover exclusive pieces and the history behind the brand that is considered one of Italian`s most elegant fashion houses.
