Quadrilatero della moda - Fashion District

Where fashion and luxury are at home

Around Via Monte Napoleone, via Della Spiga, via Manzoni and Corso Venezia

The Quadrilatero della Moda (Fashion Quadrilateral) is Milano’s luxury shopping district, and one of the most famed in the world. So-called because it is delimited by four prestigious streets - via Montenapoleone, via Manzoni, via della Spiga and Corso Venezia - the entire neighbourhood is comprised of extremely elegant thoroughfares, such as via Borgospesso, via Santo Spirito, via Gesù, via Sant'Andrea and via Bagutta.


Every year, ‘Main Streets Across the World’, the annual report that lists the most important shopping streets worldwide, ranks the Fashion Quadrilateral amongst the top positions along with Fifth Avenue in New York and Avenue des Champs Elysees in Paris. The famous Via Montenapoleone was on the second step of the podium in 2023.


The showrooms and boutiques attract shopping lovers from all over the globe who come to spend, stroll and soak up the beauty of the shop windows, as ever the epitome of exquisite taste and design


If you happen to be in Corso Venezia or Via Sant'Andrea, be sure to enter into the so-called new ‘Piazza del Quadrilatero’ that links these streets. After being a private venue for 500 years, the former seat of the Archbishop's Seminary is now open to the public.

The edifice and the large central courtyard have undergone a complete renovation; here you can find a luxury hotel and, beneath the sixteenth-century colonnade, the shops and boutiques of large fashion houses, cult streetwear brands and artisanal creations.

Visitors are free to traverse and admire the courtyard, pause for a break sitting at one of the tables in the gourmet eateries interspersed with the shops, participate in events, or simply discover one of Milan's ‘secret’ places, now accessible to all.


Luxury shopping is on offer alongside Italian culture because, thanks to the numerous museums in the vicinity, you can inhale the history of the city in Milano’s Fashion District. The choice is varied: from the historic Museo Bagatti Valsecchi house museum,the outcome of an extraordinary late nineteenth-century collecting story, to Palazzo Morando which hosts the museum dedicated to costume, fashion and image.


Every beautiful corner of this district is an opportunity to experience shopping, luxury, fashion and culture in the heart of Milano.
