144 Entryways of Milan

I still remember thinking the first years when visiting Milan, that this was the least attractive of all Italian cities I knew. Five years back I just added a couple of extra days to a business stay and fell in love with the city. Today this is one of my favourite places to visit in Europe and I have always admired the entryways of Milan, their sense of chic and the relation of outside and inside.

The Taschen editorial has published a book that concentrates on the second glimpse you get to see on a building (assuming the facade would be the first)  and proves that Milan is actually a city of great beauty and interest. Titled Entryways of Milan, its pages invites readers to take a journey and enjoy the work of Italy’s most influential designers and architects, including Giovanni Muzio, Luigi Caccia Dominioni, Gio Ponti, and Piero Portaluppi.

Here’s a peek into a few of the 144 opulent, minimal, monochromatic and colourful Milanese entryways pictured by Karl Kolbitz and built between 1920 and 1970.
