Gogol & Company experience

Gogol & Company experience

Dear reader, the first place that I’ve chosen to launch my “Coffee Break” project is Gogol&Company Café – essentially a book store in disguise.

You would wish you lived across the street from it but no, it ain’t downtown Milan, not even close to it. But in spite of the location, it is worth a visit and, if needed, a long ride on the tramcar, rest assured of it.

For if you are looking to a nice and restful venue in Lorenteggio neighbourhood, where to have your morning latte and read the last effort of your favorite author, this is the place to be.Tasty coffee and good selection of wines mix with an array of soul food to nibble: homemade sweets, donuts, bagels and bruschettas.

The surroundings feature a vintage and fashionable design, an outdoor seating and, in the back, a tiny corner where twin sofas face a window with a breathless urban view. Who wouldn’t hang out there sipping hot latte, reading and staring at the buzzing city? As for me, i could spend hours there.

So let me tell you something: This café represents your sweetest escape from roaring Milan, period. Ok then, get yourself a nice book and a cup of the finest Italian cappuccino and relish your stay.

Milan is one of my favourite city in Italy. It’s bustling, frantic and busy with its tones of different urban-animals going around: models, bloggers, professionals and whatnot. I’m currently living here for a project and do like it. Forget about Rome and its siestas, here you have to catch up with a business living pace.

 Milan does never stop moving and neither do I!

Milano è una delle mie città favorite. Vibrante, caotica e sempre in movimento, ha tanti diversi protagonisti: bloggers, modelle e professionisti. Sviluppare i miei progetti in questà città, mi ha fatto apprezzare il suo fascino metropolitano. Roma con i suoi ritmi rilassati è lontana, qui bisogna stare al passo con i tempi!

Милан является одним из моих любимых мегаполисов Италии. Он будоражит, подгоняет и торопит тебя. Такой вечно занятый и суматошный, но в то же время в абсолютной идиллии со своими главными героями в виде моделей, банкиров, юристов и блогеров. Неудивительно, ведь Милан – это экономический центр Италии. Здесь действительно можно найти все. В настоящий момент я живу здесь, и должна сказать, что мне очень нравится местный ритм и лайфстайл. Я уже и забыла что такое римская сиеста, здесь нужно идти в ногу с заданными темпами.
