“There are towns of evident beauty that are given to everyone, and others that love to be discovered. Milan belongs to this kind, so much that it is hard to decide which are the reasons for its charm (…). I believe that it consists mainly in its “class”, as it happens for some women who strike us for their pose, even if they are not beautiful, and not even have a make up”
