Armani Park in Milan

I have photographed the Armani wall before, but I had not noticed the little park in front of the wall until recently. In my defence, last time I was in front of the wall it was covered in a huge photo of David Beckham proudly wearing Armani underwear – very nice. David has been replaced and I was able to drag my eyes away from the wall.

not as good as David

It is hard to get an idea here of the size of this wall – it is huge. You can get a sense of it by looking at the people underneath. There is a delightful little park below the photo, a green space between the buildings.

The park is maintained by Emporio Armani in collaboration with the Milan authorities. I’m sure it is popular with locals.

Look for the park – and the wall- on the corner of Via Broletto and Via del Orso.

I have trawled back through thousands of photos and I have found David!!! Lucky you.

  9. In general I like almost all Armani desigs. Now I know I also like -and very much- their wall in Milan and the little park… and that 2008 underwear advertisment!

    I agree, something so beautiful has to be showed, shared, just at a visual level…
