A new fashion district planned for Milan

The new fashion district in Milan’s Corso Como will host more than 50 areas of shops, showrooms, restaurants, art galleries and cultural workshops and will feature more than 160.000 sqm of pedestrian areas. The new development takes shape in the Garibaldi area of Milan and the first phase, the extension of existing Corso Como, has already been completed and presented on Monday to the media. Renzo Rosso’s Diesel and its other brands as well as Costume National confirmed opening stores in the new complex, where stores will be open in time for the 2013 edition Salone del Mobile.

Covering a surface of 360.000 sqm, the new district of Corso Como, already named by many ”the new Montenapoleone” of Milan, is the largest development in the history of the Italian metropolis.
