During the week of the Salone Internazionale del Mobile, the Triannale di Milano held a number of special exhibitions. One of them concerns the city of Milan itself.

According to its web site  > here, it’s all about Milano,

The exhibition presents the historic signs and symbols of Milan, illustrating what the city has become today in the collective imagination through the evolution of its coat of arms and of the symbols of the city and its community. It also includes the faces of important native and adoptive Milanese, the city’s great artistic icons, and profiles of significant historical and modern buildings.

La Cotoletta alla milanese (similar to Wiener Schnitzel except the italian version is cooked and served with the bone in). See our post here about what we had in Vienna.

I have seen some of these painting in the Museo Novocento next to the Duomo during my last visit. See my blog posts about that museum here and here.

Achille Castglioni is one of the few names I recognized. He designed our flatware.
