The Ralph Lauren Palazzo in Milan - Part 1
A special highlight of my visit to Milan was a private tour of the Ralph Lauren Palazzo. Mostly it's a well-kept secret being only assessible by invitation. Built in 1941 (during WW2) as one of a handful of mansion style houses for the wealthy as the Casa Campaini Bonomi Palazzo.
The palazzo features high soaring ceilings and arch topped doorways and windows that look out onto a beautifully tessalated tiled courtyard with a backdrop of tiered arches and large scale chandeliers and lanterns feature throughout. The entry courtyard features the brand's iconic polo horse as a sculpture flanked by columns and an archway, all softened by verdant greenery.
