Milan is long established as the capital of fashion and design. Famous for its café lifestyle, Milan is known, too, for its cuisine with signature dishes such as ossobuco. Fidenza Village, 60 minutes from Milan and Bologna, complements the best of this lifestyle, with boutiques of famous Italian and international brands in fashion and lifestyle clustered between cafés and restaurants along open-air pedestrianised malls. Fidenza Village, equidistant between Milan and Bologna, is a distinctly Italian shopping experience with over 100 outlet boutiques offering reductions of up to 70% on the recommended retail price, all year round. Even the most discriminating follower of fashion will appreciate the designers showcased here, with niche Italian brands like Duvetica, Frette, Pinko, and Simonetta, while the international brands run the fashion gamut from Armani to Versace by way of Brooks Brothers, Furla, Marni, Paul Smith, Swarovski and textile legends Missoni. A selection of the best of the region’s famed gastronomy can be enjoyed here at the Village’s eateries as well as there being a delicatessen, serving freshly prepared local produce. Barlumeria is a fusion of modern bar and traditional delicatessen serving regional dishes, while Obikà bases its menu around the finest Mozzarella di Bufala Campana DOP from the Campania region. The Village has a Shopping Express – a daily luxury return coach service to Milan, a personal shopper on request, free Wi-Fi and an English-speaking welcome service. Less
