Chinatown, Milan is situated in the 8th quarter of Milan (Italy), and it's an important commercial district. The Milanese Chinatown was originally established in via Canonica in the 1920s by immigrants from Wencheng County, in the Zhejiang province, and used to operate small textile and leather workshops.It is the oldest and largest Chinese community in Italy, with about 21,000 people in 2011.Today, the district is filled with hairdressing salons, fashion boutiques, silk and leather stores, libraries, traveling agencies and medicine centers. The Chinese takeaways and restaurants in the area are mostly specialised in Zhejiang cuisine. Several Italian-Chinese companies are also headquartered in the neighborhood, including the editorial desk of the newspaper Europe China Daily. Via Paolo Sarpi is the main street of the Milan Chinatown, the others being Via Bramante, Via Giovanni Battista Niccolini and Via Aleardo Aleardi.

  • What about? ... There's not much to review. It's a reality in line with new trends in the global world.

  • I had, ignorantly, high expectations in roaming the streets of Milanese Chinatown, nothing to compare with that in London and say that armed with my trust Pentax I started looking for cues and exotic images. The only thing "exotic" was written, mostly bilingual, Italian and Chinese. In via Paolo Sarpi, one store, was exotic articles clear interest. One building, as a whole, a general name for an ordinary Mall split level with 2 types of supermarkets and a bar pity that the staff didn't understand a single word of Italian. A large store of strange vegetables was perhaps most interested and obsolete I've ever seen. Some apparently empty crosses of life had open doors with inside of billboards whose well written suggested the different types of massages that are practiced – here and there, but always within the houses of these empty streets, young girls they called you and asked you to come. If I had one word to define the turisticità of this Chinatown would call it IRRELEVANT-in Milan there is more and more to see and do.
