ROME - Milano received the first prize as touristic city with the best online reputation. That must be thanks to me, years promoting Milan, so I should stop now, lol. We've reached the target.
After 1st city of fashion and 1st city of football, Milan, the city of Expo 2015, a tourist destination with the best web reputation. This was the verdict delivered by the Prime Minister's Office (Department of Development and Competitiveness of Tourism) and the Committee for Innovation of the Ministry of Tourism. Milan has won the award at the Forum PA 2011.
Through the use of software that allows you to make the semantic analysis of the content published on the web, Milan managed to improve its tourist image outside. The project has allowed to monitor the online reputation of the brand Milano and to assess the sentiment on the competitiveness of the tourist city. The analysis yielded a significant improvement of marketing campaigns undertaken by the Municipality to promote tourism and local projects. The software used by the City Council has also won the ICT prize at the last edition of SMAU. The project was also presented to "Sentiment Analysis Symposium" held in New York in April 2011, confirming the importance of the work.

Ok can I say two or three things and ruin the online reputation, lol. I was born and always lived for decades in the historic centre, so I can :). Of course in the world there are much more spectacular cities, it can be New York, Barcelona, etc. what you want, I mean cities you would say "beautiful" looking at them. My favourite city is Barcelona, especially for its atmosphere. But of course every city has its own problems, it can be crime, as in those two cities, etc.
Milan can be spectacular if you're interested in arts, concerts, fashion, football, food, etc. (models love Milan) but of course you can find people, Italians or from Milan or foreign people, who say they don't like Milan, and even hate it. It can be for the traffic, but as Noel Gallagher I almost never use a car, I'm a v.i.p. and I always want a driver :). Or they say "it's grey", but this is the typical jealous comment, because it's not true, the sun almost always shines, even during the winter. They also say it's foggy, yes, it's a very English city but not so rainy.
In big cities as Milan, life is not so easy as it seems: there is everything, but prices are high, jobs are underpaid, etc. you have to "survive". I would go away, because I stayed here too much time. If any other city needs to raise its online reputation, then get me :)
If it's for tourism, you won't have big problems in Milan. But living in a place as this, you would notice that people tend to alienate themselves. It's not like in small towns where everybody knows everybody. Of course you can see people still meeting around and all, but it's like a domino effect: you don't meet someone anymore not because you don't want, but everybody is getting always busy or the contrary, too lazy, and there are always less "social meetings". Big companies are things for schoolboys, you have to fix a date with one or few people because it's impossible for everybody to be free at the same time.
It's not a so bad thing (see, I suffer from the domino effect :) and you end up having a life that I call "vita di nicchia", niche life: I mean you end up having a "v.i.p." life. You go to that important event, you go meeting that celebrity, etc. a few important things.
Here's one from my favourite philosopher, who already said some things similar to Noel Gallagher's lyrics... Of course Noel wrote them before him, lol.

"Sociability is the act for which the men warm to each other the spirit, just as, when it's cold, you warm up each other's body hugging each other. The more spiritual heat you have, the less you need of sociability: it therefore tends to increase when the spirit is reduced."
(A. Schopenhauer)

It seems that Milan is a city full of spiritual heat... But with this I don't mean that people refuse to be kind, usually they're ready to help you.

"The more you have inside yourself, the less you need of other people. That's why superiority of spirit makes you rather unsociable. The level of sociability is in inverse proportion to the intellectual value".
(Schopenhauer)

..... Northern Italy anthem: Va pensiero (Go, thought, on golden wings) by Verdi (from Nabucco)








"L'Italia è la casa spirituale degli Oasis.
I ragazzi italiani sono come me, molto passionali.
4 elementi li contraddistinguono: il calcio, la musica, la famiglia e l'amore per l'eleganza. I miei amici italiani sono dei fighi, indossano vestiti e scarpe stupende, sciarpe favolose, occhiali da sole anche di notte e donne bellissime al loro fianco. Beh, sono considerato una figura santa in Italia. E' Milano... l'Italia è grande amico, cazzo se mi piace andarci".
(Noel Gallagher, Oasis)

Italy is Oasis spiritual home.
Italian boys are like me, very passionate.
4 elements mark them: football, music, family and love for elegance. My Italian friends are cool, they wear wonderful clothes and shoes, fabulous scarves, sunglasses even at night and beautiful women by their side. Well, I'm considered quite a holy figure in Italy, It's Milan... Italy's great man, I
fucking love going there.

"Milano è il miglior fottuto pubblico, e lo dico davvero!"
(toccandosi il cuore più volte)
(Liam Gallagher, Oasis)

Milan is the best fucking crowd, and I really mean it!
(touching his heart more times)

"Nice jacket"

..... Milan was appointed as the 1st city of fashion in the world.
"Milano è una città bellissima. Molta gente pagherebbe per stare qui. Non vado quasi mai a fare shopping, quello che mi piace di Milano è la gente".
(David Beckham, Milan)
[=Milan is a beautiful city. Many people would pay for staying here. I almost never go shopping, what I like in Milan is the people.]
"
"We get chatting to Marco who was around for Paolo Nutini arriving and had given him a quick hand shake then sloped off, (you know how cool guys like to play it), he is really a Brit Indie lad at heart trapped inside the body of an Italian guy, his taste in music is fabulous.
The tempo was troppo caldo (too hot weather), the Duomo is breathtaking to say the least. Milano women are ridiculously stylish and fabulously slim, gorgeous beings. The chef shaped my pizza into a love heart. Italian men are so smooth!

..... Italian accent :), his girlfriend studied in Milan and he's got friends from here. I drove some cars on this circuit, know every corner as my pockets since I was a child. ..... The centre of the world. The new zone where Oasis had to perform their last concert in history... before the "break" of 5 years... strange coincidence, 2015... we're all part of a Masterplan :))) In his 'Tales From The Middle Of Nowhere', Noel refers to Italy as the bands’ 'spiritual home' and anyone who has been to an Oasis gig in Italy will know why. It’s fitting that Oasis have chosen Milan to stage the final show... but then Noel left the band again (for the 3rd time) 2 days before (from the official site ) ..... arts->football->art->food->art->fashion->football->music->art... watch this slideshow I made with Oasis piano music of Live forever "we see things they'll never see...'cause I just wanna fly": the 1st city of fashion in the world, the most famous painting in the world, the most famous theatre in the world, the best food in the world, the biggest Christmas tree in the world, the biggest equestrian statue in the world, the 1st team in football history, Milan is magic ..... the most beautiful woman in the world, Breil Milano Compleanno Image Banner 300 x 250

..... song of the summer 2010 in Italy. It says "amiamo l'Inghilterra... crediamo nell'eternità", we love England, we believe in eternity.

the city of Milano&England have the same flag. Ladies&gentlemen, AC Milan, best club in history, was founded by a group of English&Italians. Milan was appointed as the 1.city of world fashion.
..... Milano da bere, Milan to drink: historic tv advert in 1987 by Marco Mignani, the same man who invented the political name "Forza Italia", conservative party by Berlusconi, born in Milan
..... ahahaha this is hilarious. One of many Milan red drinks ("Milan to drink") like Ramazzotti, Campari, etc. by a Milan comic band fooling around Milan homosexual fashion stylists ^_^ One says "divine" that also means "of wine" and the other goes "which wine, you stupid (girl) !" ahahaha

I'm pleased to announce that I created the "Milano" Facebook network, the only original one on Facebook (it took years to have it), and to use it you have to ask me (by mail here: marco@miamilan.com) a nice Google e-mail address, as "yourname@miamilan.com" ...I'm not Italian, I'm more: I'm from Milan. :D ...The funny part is that to make Facebook accept it, I put it as a "work network" but now it's also a place network. Milan people are known for being always busy in doing something, so this place-work network is appropriate :)
