The fashion capital of the world, Milan is the second largest city in Italy and is the capital of the Lombardy region.

While Rome is often considered as the political heart of the country, Milan is at the centre of Italy’s economy and home to the main Italian banking groups.

Other industries that are prominent in the city include media and advertising, telecommunication, manufacturing and of course, fashion.

The location

Located in the northwestern area of the Po Valley, Milan has a great location between the river Po to the south and the Alps and the great lakes to the north.

The city itself is divided into nine separate zones and organised in a sunburst pattern encircling Zone 1, clockwise from the north-east of the city.

Looking for an office in Milan

Business confidence is returning to Milan after the economic contraction of recent times with prime locations and modern buildings proving to be the most sought-after requirements.

Rental prices are currently stable and incentives from suppliers are still very common in the city, meaning now is great time to move or set up your business in Milan.


The prices for serviced office space can range from between €350 - €900 per workstation in Milan, depending on location and requirements. 

However, when looking at serviced offices it is always worth keeping in mind that these costs usually cover a whole variety of amenities, which may include Internet meeting rooms, reception services etc., and as such can me more cost-effective than traditional leases.

Five things you probably didn't know about Milan:
  • Milan sits half way between the River Po and The Alps, hence the name Milan, meaning ‘midpoint’ or ‘in the middle place’
  • Milan is popular for aperitivo; the tradition of pre-dinner drinks with appetizers. 
  • Home to the Teatro alla Scala, one of the largest and leading opera and ballet theatres in the world; it was the first building to be rebuilt after being destroyed in World War II
  • Order a caffè in Milan and you'll get a simple espresso; if you want any other type of coffee you need to distinguish
  • Milan’s Duomo is the fifth largest cathedral in the world and you can walk on its roof and (on a clear day) see The Alps

With Versace, Prada, Valentino, Dolce & Gabbana, Armani and Missoni, to name just a few all headquartered in Milan, combined with the biannual Milan fashion week, it isn’t hard to see why the city is regarded as one of the major fashion capitals of the world, and an absolute ideal location for any company that works with, or in the industry.

However, Milan offers so much more than just fashion. 

Home of Italy’s stock exchange, a European industrial powerhouse and host of the 2015 World Exposition, Milan has something for every business to benefit from.
