    About Milan

    The capitol of Lombardy, Milan is unique for its combination of a rich history that’s directly impacted the cultural trends that shape the modern world. A former Roman colony, Milan rose through the Renaissance to become one of the architectural hotspots of the Western World. Home to the Milan Cathedral, perhaps the most important example of Gothic Architecture in all of Italy, it’s a city that’s long influenced the cultural trends of its neighbors. As the center of industry during WWII it also suffered lots of bombing and much of the cities beautiful buildings were destroyed. Today, modern skyscrapers compete with Gothic masterpieces, each of which stand in awe of the Alps that loom in the distance (on a clear day). In the 1950’s a Fashion revolution emerged from Milan, one that continues to this day. The city is the world’s fashion design and business Zeitgeist. Home to Armani, Versace, Prada, and Dolce & Gabbana, Milan is the cutting edge when it comes to fashion, and a must for fashion interns globally.

    "Coming to a different country has been extremely eye-opening and a rewarding experience. Before GE, Italy was not a place I would have ever considered living in because of the language barrier, but this adventure taught me how to overcome that and be more driven."
