You may not believe it, but Milan is at the same time the Italian financial capital and a significant agricultural pole. Milan sinks its roots deep inside the earth: everything, from fashion to design and business came at a later time. Even the name Milano comes from Mediolanumin medio lanae (“in the middle of the wool” of a specific local kind of furry pig).

Follow this itinerary through the green parks all around the city, just a few km far from Piazza del Duomo you find some charming historical farms, with cattles and cultivated lands, educational farms and farmer markets…
