Il pane della comunità
14 December 2016 Il pane della comunità

La ricetta è quella rigorosa del disciplinare della Camera di Commercio di Milano: materie prima selezionate, tempi di lievitazione lentissimi, tanta passione e pazienza. Un insolito punto di vista sul panettone milanese espresso da un panificatore artigianale, che definisce il dolce tipico del Natale come “pane ricco”.

Donatella Brunazzi - Museo Teatrale alla Scala
7 December 2016 Donatella Brunazzi - Museo Teatrale alla Scala

A Parigi, nel  1911 i più importanti esponenti del mondo della cultura artistica e musicale milanese si unirono, sostenuti dal Governo e dal re Vittorio Emanuele III, con lo scopo di aggiudicarsi all'asta un lotto di cimeli musicali e teatrali di straordinario valore messi all'asta dall'antiquario Sambon. Tra loro vi erano figure illustri: il duca Uberto Visconti di Modrone Presidente del Teatro alla Scala, Giacomo Puccini, Umberto Giordano, Arrigo Boito, Ettore Modigliani, il tenore Enrico Caruso, gli editori Ricordi e Sonzogno. Grazie al loro impegno  e a questa prima acquisizione venne istituito il Museo Teatrale alla Scala, inaugurato nel  1913.

Dal 1 gennaio 2016 Donatella è la Direttrice del Museo Teatrale, le radici della sua vita professionale sono profondamente legate a due ambiti dell'eccellenza culturale milanese, apparentemente distinti ma in realtà molto vicini tra loro: la moda e il teatro.

Quando si accendono le luci
5 December 2016 Quando si accendono le luci

Dietro le quinte della Scala, uno dei teatri d’opera più importanti al mondo, decine di tecnici, maschere e operai sono al lavoro per il cambio scena fra un atto e l’altro. Alla vigilia della tradizionale "Prima" di Sant'Ambrogio, un modo diverso di raccontare (e omaggiare) il teatro attraverso il lavoro di chi non va in scena, ma è altrettanto importante alla riuscita dello spettacolo.

28 November 2016 1928

Il re delle strade di Milano corre sui binari. Il suo nome tecnico è serie 1500 ma tutti lo conoscono come “1928”, dall’anno della sua nascita. Dentro l'officina ATM di via Teodosio, ultimo avamposto industriale nella città del terziario, si rimettono a nuovo le vetture dopo anni di servizio, con la stessa tecnologia meccanica degli anni ’20.

Susana Dueñas

A Mexican girl starting to have a quarter-life crisis. I’ve never moved from my house in Mexico before; that is until six months ago when I decided to come to Milan because I knew there had to be a different path for me. If anybody asks, I officially believe in love…for beer.

Irina Popova

My name is Irina, I’m 21 years old, come from a small town near Moscow, live and study in Milan. To describe myself, I could be a female character of a typical Soviet movie – good student, sports player, socially active. But the constant drive for new experiences and challenges makes me jump from the rocks, learn new languages or pack my comfort zone into four suitcases and head off to Italy. 

Mylène Cellier

Take a good liter of frenchness, add some unconditional love for food, a light touch of bad jokes and mix everything in Milan’s university for one year… And here you go, that would be me! And throughout this blog, I promise I will always be committed to what truly matters. As dear Orson Welles said, “Ask not what you can do for your country. Ask what’s for lunch”.

Me, it’s Claire, 24 year-old, from the historic corsair city of Saint-Malo in Britanny. However, my curiosity brought me to live in quite a few countries. I believe to be particularly sensible to places, objects, persons imprinted with history and revealing a “savoir-faire”. Thus, the authenticity of Italy could only charm me. I will guide with a great pleasure my readers through Milan and its streets full of secrets.

Agathe Martinot

Agathe, 22, art and design enthusiast. Wishing to make a living out of it someday soon, I study Industrial Design at Politecnico di Milano.

Nisa Sedaghat

Originally from Colorado, USA, Nisa has grown up with a mixed background of Persian and European heritage, giving way to her wanderlust and love for new people, cultures, languages and food. She has spent a significant amount of time traveling the world, and tries to see at least one new place every few months. In her free time, you can find Nisa doing her favorite things: traveling, dancing, photography, laughing like crazy, and of course, eating.

My major is Musicology at University of Milan and I am passionate about literature, art, music and theatre. While being honest, positive and responsible, I always enjoy exploring new things and strive to achieve the highest standard possible at any given task. Now I am in pursuit of being an ambassador of cultural exchange and dissemination. 



Pacilia Tan

Pacilia Tan Saw Kun , Malaysian.

Loves to express myself through writing because it is the closest way to express what lies within the heart. Being an architectural enthusiast, I soon found myself fallen in love with photography and travel. I enjoy the excitement of meeting new people and discovering new things as I travel, and I will compose all of them in my writings alongside with photographs.

Earlier, before moving to Milan, I had completed IB Diploma Programme at an international school in Germany. Today I speak 4 different languages on different levels: Russian as my mother-tongue, English, German and Italian. I have decided to write a blog for Expo in Città because I will get a chance to experience various events, meet interesting people and involve myself in the cultural life of Milan.

Maksym Chervinski

My name is Maksym. I am an architect; however the field of my interest extends far beyond the construction and design. The main credo is “information never could be useless”, thus I am always in the process of studying and learning something new and interesting. The more I know, the more I want to share this with people around me. Therefore, welcome to my blog – I am sure everyone will find something for themselves.

Yulia Morozova

Priscillia Jorge

Well decided to taste the dolce vita, I moved away from Parisian habits to Milan one year ago. Architect and PhD candidate in urban planning, I am interested in art, cultural events and Italian gastronomy (I have to admit it). How can we imagine a better destination than the city, mysterious and creative, where Leonardo da Vinci painted his famous Cenacolo, where the Salone del Mobile attracts the crowds from the entire world and where it is possible to eat gelato in any season?

Ray Hsi

One of a many Taiwanese in Milan (NABA). Lucky enough to go to NY (Pratt) for an exchange semester. Take responsibility seriously and become the president of  Taiwanese student in Italy community. Love challenge enough to make an internship and go to Madagascar. Enjoy my life enough to stay in Italy and I'm prepared to be something more.

Yulia Sukhneva

I'm Yulia Sukhneva, a native Russian living and studying in Milan. Do you know what the worst thing was for me when I was a child? To write essays at school. But since September 2014 I’ve started my personal style blog  ‘Fashion Consolle’ and suddenly have become an occasional writer, or blogger. Never thought I’d love writing so much. So, I don’t set limits anymore. If you like fashion, style and design follow my updates.

Markos Hughes

Markos Hughes is an exchange university student from Brisbane, Australia.
He studies architecture at the Politecnico di Milano. Alongside Expo in città he is also a Student Ambassador for the EU for Expo 2015. Markos has an interest in art, photography and storytelling.
