Milano is a city of ancient origins and yet extremely modern, thanks to its vitality and capacity for change and renewal. New technology, cultural events, business, design and fashion combine with a tradition of warmth and hospitality. Leonardo da Vinci, its most renowned citizen, lived here for two decades in the 15th Century, leaving an unforgettable heritage of engineering and artistic masterpieces, such as the “Last Supper” mural painting.
