Pack up and lets go!
Milan is the capital of Lombardy and is worldwide famous for fashion, architecture and design.
A part from being the base for many famous fashion designers, the city hosts every year the famous Milan fashion week, a clothing trade show held twice every year.
The event is partially organized by the National Chamber for Italian Fashion and it attracts designers and personalities from all over the world each year.
Milan is a major national and international centre of the performing arts, most notably opera. It has been, throughout history, a major centre for musical composition (with major composers living there, like Giuseppe Verdi) and it hosts the worldwide famous opera house Teatro alla Scala.
米兰同时也是最重要国际性的艺术表演中心！尤其歌剧表演最为鼎盛！而且也是历史上主要的音乐作曲中心（众多主要的作曲家曾生活在这里，像朱塞佩·威尔第）因此，米兰拥有世界上最著名的斯卡拉歌剧院Teatro alla scala.
