Municipality of Milan Goes Digital
Milan goes digital in the twenty-first century, making it a more accessible city to everyone around the world—which is wonderful news for those who want to enjoy the great things it has to offer. While Milan has historically been difficult to access, particularly with its fashion industry, it’s making a real effort recently to show itself off to the world.
You don’t have to physically be in Milan to experience it (though there’s nothing quite like visiting the municipality physically!).
Here’s how the city of Milan is having a digital transformation (and the benefits of it).
Milan’s Digital Renaissance
Milan is known for its fashion, so the fact that Milano Fashion Week is digital now for those who want to experience it is a huge triumph. While many people have flocked to this Italian city to witness fashion shows that can’t be seen anywhere else around the world, they can now enjoy those experiences from the comfort of their own home.
People can even submit their own fashion videos, telling a story or simply showing off their choices in a digital format. This digital event was, of course, brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, but even as the world moves on, there’s something to be said for Milan continuing this.
The New Digital Culture of Milan
It’s not just the new age of fashion that Milan has embraced when it comes to moving into the digital era.
MEET Digital Culture Center also opened in Milan in 2020. It’s a center for digital and creative technology that’s all about educating and embracing the digital age.
Lastly, an official Milan app is in the works that will make travel easy in the city. It’s bringing together public transport and rideshares with a press of the same button, making it a breeze for visitors and residents alike to find their way around.
There are also more unofficial apps people are turning to, as people begin to explore again and need entertainment and travel advice in this wonderful city.
Benefits of Going Digital
It’s smart for the Milan city government and its citizens to capitalize on the idea of going digital. Although some establishments can be resistant to change to their usual traditions, there are many advantages to doing it.
Milan is a truly inspiring city, and while there’s nothing quite like visiting it in person, making it accessible for those across the rest of Italy and all over the world has obvious benefits—namely, to show it off!
This can help tourism coming into the country, and also encourage those who might be moving to Italy to look into Milan where they might have been focused on a place like Rome instead.
There are also people who might not otherwise be able to experience Milan, such as people that can’t travel due to personal circumstances, whether finances or something else.
Convenience is key now more than ever, and going digital helps the residents of Milan and its visitors to navigate the city and join in with its happenings quickly and easily.
Going digital helps the environment. For example, having an app where rideshares and public transport are easily accessible can be huge in terms of benefiting the environment. It means less cars on the road, which means less emissions, which helps Milan—and Italy at large—reduce pollution.
Going digital helps everyone feel like they can be part of Milan. With Fashion Week going digital, people not only tuned in to see what Milan had to offer, but they went all out in sharing their own contributions.
This helps the world feel connected. Not everyone with Italian heritage is in Italy, and sometimes we need to find ways to feel close to parts of us that might sometimes seem distant.
