Fiera di Sinigaglia Market
It may seem a lie, but it's not! In Milan it's not all about luxury, there are markets too!
The typical market
Forget all that you ever knew about fashion and Milan. Forget that it is a city of exclusive brands. Forget that the world's fashion is invented in the workshops of these streets. Every Saturday morning without fail, stalls are set up along the wharf of Viale d'Annunizio ready for the Fiera di Sinigaglia market. This is the polar opposite of the luxury and exclusivity for which the city is best known. Here you can find anything. From Italian footwear (generally from previous seasons), record collections and coffee-makers to African handicrafts. Here anything is possible. It's just a matter of sifting through the goods. One thing is for sure, the atmosphere that pervades these docks every week is worth experiencing. The neighbours of the whole city gather to buy or sell all kinds of bric-a-brac. Here trendiness has been left on the sideline.
