The link on the left, goes to the Faculty of Agriculture at University of Milan (northern Italy).
Some information about Milan:
Milan lies in the north part of Italy, in the center of the most important traditional industrial zone.
Milan is one of the most important financial centers in Europe. The financial life develops in 'Piazza Affari', a little place in the center of the city, not far from the gothic-style cathedral (Duomo). 'Piazza Affari hosts the Italian most important stock-exchange market.
Milan is also well known for his international fashion firms and, consequently, in this town you can find a lot of places where you can enjoy a pleasant night-life, during the breaks of your intense studying days.
The local agriculture is mainly in the southern-neighbourhood of Milan and includes industrialized livestock breeding, with among the highest production of milk in Italy. Other local agriculture products are meat, rice, maize (used as dairy-cattle feed), greenhouse-flowers and ornamental-nurseries. In the most recent years also the garden & urban-green industry has increased, while the citizen people ask for wider open-space to move during their spar-time.
In many towns of the northern part of Italy take also place, yearly, some of the Italian most important agricultural Fairs and Expos (Verona, Cremona, Bologna, Parma, Piacenza). Such events allow you to improve your knowledge about international technologies for farming, cattle breeding, as well as about Italian typical agrifood brand-productions (DOP, IGP, DOC, etc.).
Other increasingly attended events are landscape-design, garden-architecture, environment-nature protection meetings, that often develop in the context of ancient historic places where history, landscape, cooking, music, fashion join and melt each other.
Have fun, hopefully studying.
