But surprises are not over, for 4 days the central, charming Via Del Gesù will be turned into a classy Via dell’Uomo, a 270 meters path entirely dedicated to men’s elegance where people can stroll around through the real Italian lifestyle. Kiton, Brioni and Acqua di Parma are just few of the brands you’ll find there.

To make your  day perfect, have a drink by the Foyer, the elegant bar at Four Seasons Hotel or a light lunch by Il Salumaio di Montenapoleone. In the courtyard you’ll find one of the several hidden gems of Milan, the Bagatti Valsecchi Museum, a dreamy, enchanting historic-house museum decorated in a rich Neo-Renaissance style.

And everything in just 270 meters…can you believe it?
