Gal­le­ria Carla Soz­zani

Fash­ion con­cept store Corso Como 10 may have lost its orig­i­nal lus­tre but it’s still home to Gal­le­ria Carla Soz­zani which, 27 years on, re­mains true to its orig­i­nal ethos: to raise the pro­file of pho­tog­ra­phy tal­ent, both new and es­tab­lished. Black-and-white pho­tog­ra­phy, mon­tage and nudes from greats Bruce We­ber, Herb Ritts, An­nie Lei­bovitz and many oth­ers line the gallery’s stark white walls. Carla Soz­zani, a for­mer fash­ion ed­i­tor, is the brains be­hind the en­ter­prise and her re­fined tastes aren’t con­fined to art. Next to the gallery, the book­shop fea­tures new and clas­sic pub­li­ca­tions on art, ar­chi­tec­ture, de­sign, graph­ics and fash­ion. You’ll also find a fash­ion bou­tique and a leafy court­yard café on the premises.

Spazio Ros­sana Or­landi

Oc­cu­py­ing a for­mer tie fac­tory, Spazio Rosanna Or­landi re­mains a Mi­lan se­cret ow­ing to its slightly out-ofthe-way lo­ca­tion and dis­creet en­trance. Af­ter all these years of ex­plor­ing, it is still my favourite gallery in Mi­lan. It teems with life, from the buzzing court­yard café to the labyrinthine rooms in the 19,000ft de­sign gallery filled to the brim with cu­rios, ob­jects and fur­ni­ture – some func­tional, oth­ers just plain bonkers. The pièce de ré­sis­tance is of course Ros­sana Or­landi her­self, whom you might glimpse in the café or at Marta, the restau­rant next door.
