Milan is full of odd shops, wonderful showrooms and design boutiques that attract tourists, struck by an item in the shop window or from the furniture of a boutique.
If fashion is the main attraction of Milan, the interior design is a strong magnet that is becoming increasingly popular, thanks to the annual Salone del Mobile, a landmark for those who want to discover the latest trends in this field.
