5 things to do in Milan this weekend April 21 to 23

Design Week is now winding down. From Milan to Rho Fiera and with the many initiatives planned around the city, the one nearing its conclusion has been an edition that focuses increasingly on circularity, promotion of young talent, and inclusiveness that has enlivened a week of events, exhibitions, parties, and more. To catch the best of these last days, our faithful guide is always with you.

To Eat - Antonio Marras + Famiglia Rana: Temporary Bistrot

The collaboration between Marras and Rana families is reaffirmed this year with the opening of Temporary Bistro & Restaurant Famiglia Rana in the NonostanteMarras showroom. For the occasion, the location will be transformed into a Mediterranean forest where cuisine, design and fashion intertwine like twigs. The menu features some of the iconic dishes of the Famiglia Rana restaurant (which was awarded its first Michelin star in November), which remain faithful to the chef's Venetian traditions and Campania roots, but this time open up to the Sardinian influence and gastronomic memories of the Marras family.

On the occasion of Design Week, Tod's has invited British photographer Tim Walker to take part in The Art of Craftsmanship. Developed as an offline and online exhibition, the project will be on view April 20-22 at the Cavallerizze of the Leonardo Da Vinci National Museum of Science and Technology. At the end of Design Week, the project will begin a journey around the world, touching on the most relevant cities in the international art scene. The images taken by Tim Walker portray in an ironic and fantastic way the history of Tod's, as only he knows how to do by surrealistically transforming all the products that have made the brand an icon of its time: from the Di Bag to the Gommino, treating each object as a means to express all the wisdom, craftsmanship, and culture that envelops the brand.

To Chill - Monstrum Studio 

Riccardo Villa Fabbiati's collection, Solar Flare Sunset, uncovers a world of meteorites, misteries and otherworldly elements through minimal, sharp silhouettes. The installation is packaged in a regal frame of unexpected shapes and reflective finishes. Leather, gold and alabaster embody Monstrum Studio's futuristic spirit in the Lillith Throne chair and the Lucifuge ceiling lamp, elements that fully reflect Villa Fabbiati's modern approach to design. Solar Flare Sunset is part of the Design Debuts project, an exhibition that hosts some of the most striking works of this Design Week around the city of Milan.

To Shop - YOLO

Yolo Shop, Italy's first unbranded shop, has opened in Via Torino. As it literally says on the wall of the shop: "We sell unbranded clothes from over 100 Italian and international brands, so you have free choice*. You do not pay for brand awareness, only for the value of the garment, so you buy it at a lower price." Selling unbranded garments is a way many brands use to empty stock and even archives - this way big brands do not lose their exclusivity, but individual pieces can be resold at competitive prices.
