Living in Milan
The school is situated close to the centre of Milan, a cosmopolitan city, the financial capital of Italy, and an exciting place in which to live and work. It boasts one of the grandest squares in Europe, dominated by a spectacular cathedral and arcade. Art treasures include The Last Supper by Leonardo and the Rondanini Pietà by Michelangelo, while La Scala is one of the premier opera houses in the world. The fashion houses of Prada, Armani and Versace have their headquarters here, while two of the most celebrated football teams in Europe play in the San Siro stadium. Milan recently hosted the World Expo, has excellent public transport, three international airports, and world-class healthcare, making it – the current situation aside – one of the world’s great cities.
