Shirt shop established in 1884 by Gaetano Corbella at via San Prospero 1 in Milan. It is number 4 in the city’s official chronological register of business establishments. The shop was entirely renovated in 1927 with delightful Art Nouveau furniture in mahogany and bois de rose created by the cabinet maker Egisto Quarti. Personnel assigned to the dressing rooms at La Scala would bring Arturo Toscanini’s shirts and tails here to be ironed. The fame of the shop was such that the actor Gilberto Govi would say: “To be born wearing a shirt is a lucky event, wearing a Corbella shirt is worthy of praise.”
