5 things to do in Milan this weekend From September 23 to 25

On the weekend of fashion week, Milan is on fire: the streets are almost impassable, cabs impossible to find, and the aristocracy of Instagram and TikTok roam the city streets. It's only natural that there is no shortage of events, as well as places to visit, and that's why it will be useful to have a few points of reference for the coming weekend in the city before the chaos of fashion week moves to Paris like an anticyclone.

So here are the 5 things to do in Milan from September 23 to 25.

To Eat - Sophia Loren Restaurant

If the premise of a restaurant named after a famous actress makes you think of a commercial operation, think again. Everything in this restaurant, from the menu to the service, including the wine cellar, is truly excellent-especially the pizza curated by Francesco Martucci, the best pizzaiolo in the world for 50 Top Pizza from 2019 to 2022. But bi-starred Gennaro Esposito's dishes are no less impressive either. Weather permitting, grab a seat in the outdoor seating area and you'll have a view of a beautiful glimpse of the Ambrosiana Library on a strangely low-traffic, noisy street in the city center.

Via Cesare Cantù, 3

To Drink - Flores Cócteles

An in-house bar at El Porteño Prohibido, Flores Cócteles is a little gem of mixology within an establishment that itself is one of the few to offer a dinner show six days a week. The drink list contains seven classic cocktails, all revisited, and most importantly, sublimely presented. A late-night divertissement not to be missed.

Via Macedonio Melloni 9

To Discover – Il guardaroba di Franca Sozzani

Unforgotten and unsurpassed queen mother of fashion in Italy as we know it, Franca Sozzani possessed a wardrobe that lived up to her legend. Until October 30, her clothes will be on display at the foundation that bears her name, and some of them will also be offered for sale including a blue python coat by Miu Miu, a couture dress by Azzedine Alaia, and more. Proceeds from the sale will then be donated to charity by the foundation.

Via Tazzoli 3

To Chill – Fondazione Prada

Whether you want to see an exhibition, explore Bar Luce, have a drink on the Tower, or sit on one of the benches inside surrounded by Rem Koolhas's futuristic architecture, Fondazione Prada is always a nice place to spend time. Discover it if you've never been, or go back if nowhere else welcomes you the way the Foundation does.

Largo Isarco, 2

To Shop – nssx Newsstand

As of today, the signature t-shirts created by ten creatives close to nss magazine have had their official restock. After goingsold outt in just a few hours last Tuesday, thanks to the dedication of our followers and readers, the t-shirts are back along with a special drop as well that you will discover once you get to the newsstand. Will we manage to sell out this time as well? We think so.
