All you need to know about Milan

Milan is one of Europe’s leading centres for commerce and finance, and also one of the most renowned fashion cities in the world. The city is also home to what is believed to be the world’s oldest shopping mall, the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, which finished construction in 1877. Milan also has the second highest population of any city in Italy, which continues to grow year on year.

While the country’s capital Rome is known as the main political capital of Italy, Milan is referred to as the financial heart of the country. The city is home to over 45% of businesses in the Lombardy region, with a large number of media and advertising companies. Other key sectors include research into health and biotechnology, engineering and chemical production.
