Shopping in Il Quadrilatero
Milan today is a prosperous, go-getting city, celebrated above all for its designers – of cars, furniture and housewares as well as haute-couture clothing.
If you want to glimpse the world of high fashion, go to the grid of streets called 'Il Quadrilatero della moda' (known in English as the 'Golden Quadrangle') to the northeast of the Duomo, which is bounded by the Via Montenapoleone, Corso Venezia, Via Senato and Via Manzoni. Other key streets include the Via della Spiga and the Via San Andrea.
Here you will find the shops and ateliers of all the leading Italian labels: Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, Fendi, Ferragamo, Fiorucci, Gucci, Missoni, Moschino, Prada, Ungaro, Valentino, Versace, to name but a few.
