Beyond fashion, Milan is renowned for its international sporting fame. It’s home to AC Milan and FC Internazionale Milano, two of the world’s most famous Football Teams. Thanks to the ongoing success of AC Milan in the European Champions League, the city shares the distinguished honor with Madrid as the most celebrated in European Cup history. Milan has hosted the World Cup twice, in 1934 and 1990, further solidifying its critical importance for modern European culture. In terms of its cuisine, Milan is almost completely unique to the Italian stereotype in its preference for rice over pasta, and butter over olive oil. Due to its northern location in the foothills of the Alps, the cuisine is dominated by breaded cutlets, cassouela, ossobuco, and risotto. Heartier than its southern brethren, one is unlikely to find any fish or tomatoes used in its dishes.
