Clothing for all tastes and all ages, shoes, books, perfumes and cosmetics, furnishing accessories and toys for children. Corso Buenos Aires, one of the longest commercial streets in Europe, counts more than 350 shops.
The road, that was previously called Corso Loreto, in 1906 was renamed on the occasion of the first edition of the Universal Exhibition hosted in Milano.
This decision was made by the mayor Ettore Ponti to give a more international look to the city. In addition to Corso Buenos Ayres, Piazzale Argentina and Piazzale Lima were also renamed. These names were chosen to remind the existing link between the city and the two Latin American countries, the destination of a massive Italian emigration between the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
In 2001, the mayor of Lima gave the city a plaque, that can be seen on a building in Piazzale Lima, to remind the friendship between these two cities that saw this migratory exchange.
