A shopping itinerary full of surprises. The Brera district is one of the most charming in Milan. Once populated by bohemians, the district is now famous for boutiques, curiosity shops and vintage shops.
Cà dell'Oreggia - Via Serbelloni 10
'The House of the Ear' is a beautiful example of Art Nouveau style, this house also has a rather interesting intercom. This ear, sculptured in 1930 is a rather intriguing sight on an otherwise quiet street.
