The Quadrilatero della Moda is Milano’s high-end shopping district, known all over the world. It was named after the four stylish streets that define its boundaries: via Montenapoleone, via Manzoni, via della Spiga and Corso Venezia. The district is criss-crossed with other very elegant streets such as via Borgospesso, via Santo Spirito, via Gesù, via Sant'Andrea and via Bagutta.
The annual ‘Main streets across the World’ report, listing the most important shopping streets everywhere, always ranks the Quadrilatero della Moda at the top positions, along with Fifth Avenue in New York and Avenue des Champs Élysées in Paris. In addition to the glamorous via Montenapoleone, the very near via Manzoni, Via della Spiga and Corso Venezia are ranked as well.
The district is a luxury shopping paradise for global visitors who come to its showrooms and boutiques to buy the latest trending items or just to browse the stunning window displays, often stunning compositions of taste and design in themselves.
In addition to the Italian design ateliers, the streets of Quadrilatero della Moda also exude Milano’s culture and history due to the many museums in the area. Visitors are spoilt for choice: from the historic Bagatti Valsecchi and Poldi Pezzoli house museums, the equally fascinating outcomes of two extraordinary late-nineteenth-century family art collections, on to Palazzo Morando, the museum of Costume, Fashion and Image.
Every corner of the historic district presents a unique opportunity to indulge in shopping, luxury, fashion and culture in the very heart of Milano.
