Are you familiar with the Danish word "hygge"?  

It means to feel a certain feeling: cozy, familiar, quite, beneficial and satisfactory on the long run.

Simple gestures, like lighting up a candle, having a cup of tea, living a moment of contemplation, making something with your hands, having some quality time with friends and family: all of the above can be an expression of an hygge lifestyle.   

Milano is often associated with a frantic and incredibly dynamic lifestyle, very different from the rest of Italy, where long family meals, long hours and a very quiet pace are the distinctive trait of "la dolce vita"

But in town you can live some authentic hygge experiences, especially if you love handmade.
