Sant’Andrea (via)

Sant’Andrea (via): street of Milan. Ugo Foscolo lived there. It’s in the middle of the so-called fashion quadrilateral (via della Spiga, via Manzoni, via Montenapoleone and part of corso Venezia), which isn’t a perfect quadrilateral, since old Milan’s street weren’t always straight.

Most of via Montenapoleone was monopolized by fashion already before Milan became the prêt-à-porter capital; via Sant’Andrea was instead animated by antique dealers’ stores. Only Biki tailor’s shop was there, without windows. Then fashion conquered the street. More or less payed, antique dealers Dino Franzin, Silva, Sacerdoti, Zecchini, Schieppati, the Bottega del Mago left. The occupation didn’t spare either Il Baretto by Ermanno Taschera, which debuted in via Sant’Andrea in 1963, and Sevigné, a porcelain and glass store.
