Palazzo Castiglioni is located right in the center of Milan, on one of the most important avenues, Corso Venezia. The enterpreneur Mr Castiglioni commissioned it to the architect Giuseppe Sommaruga and the building was completed in an Art Nouveau style in 1904. Today it houses the "Unione Commecianti di Milano", Traders' Union of Milan and it is also used for special exhibitions.
Italy’s and perhaps the world’s capital of fashion and design, Milano is home to the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, which is possibly the world’s oldest shopping mall. The city is currently undergoing an architectural renaissance, which will culminate in a new skyline for the Expo 2015, which will be hosted in Milano. Visitors can take advantage of an extensive public transportation system, which includes metro, buses, trolleys and trams.
