Casa degli Atellani
Corso Magenta, 65, San Vittore
This large villa came to the Atellani family via a donation from the Duke of Milan in the late 1400s. The family wasted no time transforming the property into Milan’s party house of the period (Leonardo da Vinci actually stayed there while painting The Last Supper), and its magnificence is still (basically) intact. An audio guide accompanies you through the many rooms filled with paintings and antiques that belonged to the family. The surrounding gardens and vineyard are great for strolling through after a cappuccino and pastry at the café.
Via Matteo Bandello, 14/16, San Vittore
A concept shop that’s easy to miss (it’s discreetly located in a former tie factory in the city center), this gallery-shop hybrid sells a big range of design objects and furniture. Astier de Villatte ceramics sit next to recycled plastic glasses from Massimiliano Adami, and reclaimed wooden furniture next to super modern lighting and mirrors.
