Cadorna: What to Do

From cooking to courtyards, the district of Cadorna is worth your visit this Design Week.

by Ife Adedeji

Take note as fleets of electric trams dissect intersections and squares, and as commuters weave their way through the throngs, which dissipate after rush hour. Excitement bubbles up ever so gently to the surface with the start of the working day and the arrival of each train. This is where a community eats, studies, creates and eventually leaves once their nine hours are done. But you should keep your eyes peeled, because there are certain distinct moments where you might just catch a glimpse of the transitional magic that is only found on the streets of Milan.

Spazio Rossana Orlandi

Interior design and art collide to shape a striking exhibition space complete with a magical courtyard, and restaurant. Discover works by rising stars and reputable homeware designers such as Ghidini 1961, all under one roof in an enchanting atmosphere.

Furniture collection at Castello Sforzesco

Established in 1908, this collection hosts works by the Mora family who hailed from Bergamo and specialised in cabinetry. The exhibition has been added to over the years, but it still focuses on furniture and wooden sculptures with more names such as Durini added into the mix.


Milan’s very own design museum is a veritable warren of wonders, especially during Salone del Mobile when it houses the crème de la crème of the interiors, architecture and furniture worlds.
