What you'll do

You will join me on a lovely morning walk, starting with a nice caffè in a historical bar, owned by a milanese fashion house, I will show you a secret entrance. During our walk, I will provide insights on the historical and cultural significance of our surroundings (i.e. Duomo, Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, Piazza della Scala, various fashion houses etc.). I am very passionate about world-class Fashion and Coffee, and we will be able to experience both. We will learn interesting things about Milano while starting our day in a productive way :)

(NB: during the 90 minutes, only 15 minutes will be inside cafés, the rest will be outside in open spaces)

I have studied 'Management of Fashion and Luxury Companies' and pursued a Masters of Art Management at the top university in Italy. I ran my own international clothing brand as well as a marketing company. I love to share my excitement for the unconventional ways fashion companies build their brands. I love Milan because these brands offer many hidden experiences, you just need to know where to look.

Gianni gave an amazing tour! He speaks so passionately from his wealth of knowledge in art and fashion. He is so welcoming to questions and provides an amazing perspective of fashion old and new. The coffee is an amazing touch as well!

Giovanni gave us a great intro to Milan and its place in the fashion world with a ton of interesting cultural and historical context! He introduced everything by gauging our prior knowledge and was also able to answer all of our random questions along the way. He is super friendly and easy to hang with! Thanks Giovanni!! 🙂

I was supposed to join this tour May last year but international travel was halted due to Covid pandemic so I was extremely excited to finally join this tour when Italy is open for American again! I was lucky this turned out to be a private tour. Giovanni is friendly, professional and knowledgeable of the long history of Milan’s beautiful cathedral and the many important buildings and streets. He is full of insights and interesting facts on the many high end Italian fashion houses. Who knew McDonald’s has an interesting relationships with Italian fashion houses? You’ll have to join Giovanni’s tour to find out! Thanks Giovanni for a great tour!
