Berton Ristorante

Following the chef’s philosophy, Berton Ristorante is intimate, rigorous and elegant, where the kitchen is the heart of the restaurant, and the clients are the soul. Andrea Berton is back in the kitchen highlighting his tasting menu of modern Italian cuisine.

Located in the neighbourhood of Porta Nuova Varesine, conceived by Kohn Pedersen Fox, Berton was designed by Vudafieri Saverino, in 2013. This design studio gave life to a composition of materials such as paper, wood, cement and metal to create a love story about food and design, where gastronomy is preponderant in a soothing atmosphere where large windows let as much natural light in as possible.

A modern and linear location that reflects an elegant and minimalistic cuisine.

The chef Claudio Sadler reinvented classic Italian gastronomy with innovation and character, where the perfect balance between traditional cuisine and a personal contemporary style is the highlight.

Milan is the home of style and good taste and this prestigious space is the proof. Sadler Restaurant has an environment both sophisticated and comfortable, where each element is present for a purpose, for the joy of textures – a luscious and delicious place you don’t want to miss.

Alla Scala Theater is one of the most important opera theatres throughout the world and it was built by order of Maria Theresia Walburga Amalia Christina von Österreich to replace Regio Ducale Theather, destroyed by a fire. It has also a museum that features important pieces of art, such as paintings, drawings, documents and statues related to opera.

During Salone del Mobile, these are the opera events that this theatre will host: La Gioconda and Members of the Teatro Alla Scala Orchestra. We advise you to buy the tickets in advance, as they sell out quickly.

Porta Sempione

Porta Sempione, or the Simpton Gate, is the city gate of Milan and it is marked by a triumphal neoclassic arch called Arco della Pace (Arch of Peace) which was the gate of the Roman walls of Milan.

Located in Piazza Sempione (Simplon Square), this place provides panoramic views and arch pictures of major events of Europe’s history and classical mythologic subjects such as Mars, Ceres, Minerva, Apollo, and Victoria-Nike.
