Milan has kind of a bad rep among Italian cities. Since so much of it was destroyed in World War II, it's not as infused in the same Old World charm we've come to expect from Italian cities and towns. All of that charm is still there, though--you just have to try a little bit harder to find it. And when you walk around, you come to discover that in addition to these little pockets of the Old, Milan has New World charm in bounds. It's known, of course, for being a fashion capital, but the creativity of the Milanese is hardly limited to clothing. This is a city that is, for better or worse, not afraid to experiment. And hey, what kind of scientist would I be if I didn't love experiments?
