2 Milan Main city of northwestern Italy, located in the plains of Lombardy Most populated, developed region 1,308,500 inhabitants, Urban area = 4,000,000 people.

3 Milan Milan's name has for many centuries been recorded as Mailand, still the German name for the city. Comes from the Celtic Medelhan "in the middle of the plain, known as Mediolanum by the Romans. In local Lombard dialect, Milán.

4 Milan One of the world s capital cities of fashion and design. Via Montenapoleone & Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II in Piazza Duomo are reputed to be the world's oldest shopping mall. Major European financial and business centre. Also famous for the Alfa Romeo motorcar and for its silk production. A famous product is the traditional Christmas sweet cake called panettone. Inhabitants of Milan are referred to as "Milanese. Milan hosted the World Exposition in 1906.

5 History Presumably founded by the Celts around 600 B.C. Conquered around 222 B.C. by the Romans, who gave it the name of Mediolanum. In the 4th century AD, at the time of the bishop Saint Ambrose (patron saint of Milan) and emperor Theodosius I, the city was briefly the capital of the Western Roman Empire.

6 History 11th century, city led in gaining semi-independence from the Holy Roman Empire. During the Plague of 1349 Milan was untouched by the epidemic. During the Renaissance, ruled by dukes of the Visconti and Sforza families, who had artists like Leonardo da Vinci and Bramante at their service. Conquered by France, later on by Austria, given early 16th century to Spain.

7 History 18th century Austria replaced Spain. French Revolution and the Napoleonic Wars annexed city into French satellite states of the Cisalpine Republic. Later the city was reconquered by Austria. Eventually became a main center of Italian nationalism, claiming independence and the unification of Italy. In 1859 Austrian rule was ended by the Kingdom of Sardinia (transformed into the kingdom of Italy in 1861).

8 History As a critical industrial center of Italy, Milan was the target of continuous carpet bombing during World war II. Milan was part of Mussolini's Italian Social Republic puppet state, an important command centre of the German Army stationed in Italy. When war in Italy was over, April , Milan was heavily damaged. After the war, the city was reconstructed and has again become an important financial and industrial centre of Italy.
