On Business

Milan is known for fashion. The city is home to many major fashion houses like Versace, Armani and Prada amongst others. However, to say that fashion is all the city is about would be doing it a great disservice, as Milan is also home to the Italian divisions of many major tech companies including Yahoo! and Google. Automobile manufacturing plays a big role in the cities economy with big names such as Alfa Romeo and Pirelli calling the city home.

Other key sectors in the city include advanced research in biotechnology and health, engineering and banking and finance.
