The Milan Design Map is the brainchild of Rob Reuland and Arlene Di Tacchio, two passionate individuals with an extensive knowledge of Milan's design scene. Having both spent significant time in Milan, Rob and Arlene have gained invaluable insights into the city's rich design heritage and vibrant culture, developing a deep understanding of the city's unique design aesthetic and creative pulse.
