Nilufar Depot
Viale Vincenzo Lancetti, 34, Derganino
Nina Yashar is one of the queens of the Italian design world, so there was an electric sense of excitement when the gallerist and furniture dealer opened Nilufar Depot three years ago. The space is a converted silverware factory near Milan’s Garibaldi train station, a three-story wonderland comprising thousands of historic and contemporary pieces, including work from legends like Gio Ponti and Piero Fornasetti. It’s not technically a museum, but coming here can feel like the ultimate education in Italian design. And because inventory changes all the time, there’s always something new to see, no matter how many times you go back.
Armani Libri
Piazza Croce Rossa, Brera
Giorgio Armani is something of a fashion god in Milan—and everywhere around the world for that matter. And his presence is felt everywhere, especially at his headquarters. The complex includes Armani-branded everything (a hotel, a café, a florist, and curiously, a chocolate shop). There’s also an Armani bookstore, which carries a huge range of fashion, art, and design books, including limited editions and prints. It’s heaven for book lovers and anyone interested in beautiful objects.
