Getting under its skin

“Working for a big fashion brand, I am really interested in design. I love Milan’s passion for style. I’ve also got quite a thing for Italian motorcars.

Using the Maserati courtesy cars of the Excelsior Hotel Gallia, is a pretty cool way to get around town.

We’ve decided to meet in the shadow of Milan’s famous Duomo. How the Milanese take breakfast reflects the tempo of life here. It’s delicious!”

From one Italian passion, to another – visiting the Maserati factory in Modena.
