The "Quadrilatero della moda", with the original Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, Ferré, Krizia, Missoni, Valentino, Versace and Zegna outlets. Both street and district take their name from a state pawnshop ("Monte"), opened here under Napoleonic rule.
.:. "Montenapo", as the Milanese call it, used to be a must not only for window-shopping but also to experience the rarefied and exclusive atmosphere of well-heeled Milan. Nowadays, jam-packed with cars and with delivery vans parked here at all hours of the day, you instead experience the total senselessness of those who don't demand that the whole street be made a pedestrian area.
.:. In this area are two of the most important museum-homes in Italy: Museo Poldi Pezzoli, with its exceptional collections of paintings, old fabrics, antique clocks, sundials, bronzetti, an armoury designed by Arnaldo Pomodoro, and Museo Bagatti Valsecchi, a fantastic mix of Renaissance pieces and 19th-century comfort.
.:. Most people reach Montenapoleone and its museums from nearby Piazza San Babila.
