4. Retire me to my Milan, where every third thought shall be my grave.William Shakespeare

5. Milan. What a beautiful place to die. – John Carradine

6. Milan is a true metropolis: strong and fearless but welcoming, too. Little by little, I came to realize that I could become someone here.Giorgio Armani

7. In Milan, everything is regulated by money. They say “cappuccio” in bars instead of “cappuccino” to save a syllable. – Enzo Biagi

8. I went daily to the cathedral of Milan, that singular mountain which was torn out of the rocks of Carrara. I saw the church for the first time in the clear moonlight; dazzlingly white stood the upper part of it in the infinitely blue ether. Round about, wherever I looked, from every corner, upon every little tower with which the building was, as it were, overlaid, projected marble figures. Its interior dazzled me more than St. Peter’s Church; the strange gloom, the light which streamed through the painted windows – the wonderful mystical world which revealed itself here – yes, it was a church of God!Hans Christian Andersen
