"Milan is the best example of Italian way of life. In 1883 the first electrical power station in Continental Europe was started near Piazza Duomo. Since then, Milan has been indisputably recognized as the engine of Italian development. It perfectly mixes the Italian culture (fashion, architecture, cuisine, lifestyle) with its Pan-European heritage, given its universities, financial district and efficient transportation connection.
Milan is also strategically located amongst the most dynamic Italian manufacturing districts and a couple of hours from the Italian Riviera and the Alps. Definitely one of the best places to work and live." – Francesco Ascoli
