If on the one hand Milan offers many important and ephemeral moments, it also has a cultural industrial complex made up of private individuals, large institutions, fashion and design, worlds that create work and employment.

No other city can boast this root-and-branch capacity, this ability to sustain such an intense network. That said, culture in Milan is intertwined with a very solid world, with a chunk of the industrial sector: what other metropolis manages to intertwine industry and creativity like this?
