The Quadrilatero della Moda is Milano’s ultra-luxurious shopping district, known all over the world. It is so called because four prestigious thoroughfares define the boundaries: via Montenapoleone, via Manzoni, via della Spiga and Corso Venezia. The district is crisscrossed with sophisticated streets such as via Borgospesso, via Santo Spirito, via Gesù, via Sant'Andrea and via Bagutta.
The annual ‘Main streets across the World’ report that lists the most important streets for shopping always ranks the Quadrilatero della Moda amongst the top positions along with Fifth Avenue in New York and the Avenue des Champs Elysees in Paris. In addition to the famous Via Montenapoleone, the adjacent via Manzoni, Via della Spiga and Corso Venezia are also ranked.
The district is a luxury shopping paradise for global visitors who come to shop in the showrooms and boutiques or just to browse the stunning window displays, often exquisite compositions of taste and design.
In addition to the Italian design ateliers, the streets of the Quadrilatero della Moda also exude Milano’s culture and history due to the many adjacent museums. Visitors are spoilt for choice: from the historic Bagatti Valsecchi Museum house museum, the result of an extraordinary family collector story in the late-nineteenth century, 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 heart of Milano.
