Milano storia


In light of Milan's EXPO 2015 focusing on 'feeding the planet: energy for life', Farming the City has organized the OLD MILANO FOOD TOUR. First tours are during Milan Food Week 2014! More here.

It may be hard to imagine your city without a single supermarket; however, shop several cities used to supply food to their inhabitants without having these modern megastores. In the OLD CITY FOOD TOUR we travel back in time to explore the history of the city from the perspective of food and food culture.

In 2015, Milan will host the universal exhibition: EXPO 2015 ‘Feeding the Planet. Energy for Life’. An event that will make the citizens and visitors aware of the important role of food, water and agriculture in their daily lives. Especially in a cities like Milan, where changes are never-ending, it is difficult to read the historic layers that have played an indispensable role in the development of its centre. THE OLD MILANO FOOD TOUR shows the results of a historic research on the relation between urban development and food, its related culture and logistic systems in Milan.

For the Milan Food Week 2014, an enthusiastic guide will take you on a walk through the area around Piazza XXV April throughout the Brera Design District. By viewing the city through the lens of food, we will also discover the political, economic and social changes that have been shaping one of the most beautiful areas of the city. What’s more interesting than visiting an Italian city by discovering its intrinsic relationship with food?

For the upcoming Milano Food Week we have in programma a two tours:
-        Saturday the 17th of May, 16-18h, starts at Piazza XXV Aprile, Milano
-        Wednesday the 21st of May, 19-21h, starts at Piazza XXV Aprile, Milano

More information and prices (from €15,- per person) can be found on the website of the Milano Food Week (
