Issue 8 - May 2008


May has arrived in Milan and we are recovering from the most exiting week of the year the “Salone del Mobile” where Milan seems to be the coolest place in the world, just where everyone wants to be.

So what is new on MY-MILANO.COM?


This year's “Salone” was a great success a “successone” as the Italians would say. A lot of people, so many events that one could not even attend half of them and beautiful innovative design from all over the world. Milan is still the design hot spot and this is not going to change. MY-MILANO.COM had a lot of fun exploring mainly the so-called "Fuori Salone". all the events and exhibitions that are not inside the fair but organized in different locations around the city.

The most important happenings and events took place once again in “Zona Tortona”, in those three or four streets around Stazione di Porta Genova that has developed into Milan’s trendiest district during the last ten years. A good reason to do some research and to discover how “Zona Tortona” became what it is now, what is the history of “Zona Tortona” and how does this area change its face during an event like the “Salone”.

Of course in all that trendy and fashionable buzz we did not forget to update our Shop Directory and then there is more great news.

MY-MILANO.COM has joined forces with Momstown.com com , the website created by Radio-hosts and bestselling authors Mary Goulet and Heather Reider dedicated to stay at home moms and working moms with a lot of tools to get a life and a business. My-Milano.com’s directors Barbara and Ann have founded the first Momstown group outside an English speaking country and are now the official Mayors of Milan.

We will keep you updated on this project.

Until the next month lots of love and the best wishes from

The MY-MILANO.COM Team
