You must live in Milano for a while to discover its beauty since it is a great place that too often is misunderstood, by its inhabitants, too. Its buildings have seen a lot of history, blood, power, money and hearts like many towns in Europe but they will not underline it, they will simply be there and you might simply live inside for years, probably a whole life without even knowing the best part of it. From this point of view, we might say that Milano is a silent town.
Milano belongs to its inhabitants as well as to the stranger. More often, in fact, foreigners know more than those who have been living there for years. Milano is everything and its opposite. The side you are looking for usually comes out where you would not expect it: in front of you.
