Giorgio Armani’s Favourites

From the city of Paris to Milan (where he lives), through to Saint-Tropez and the island of Pantelleria, these are the favourite places and addresses of famous couturier Giorgio Armani.

 

Pantelleria

“My house, my refuge. On this island, near the coast of Africa, I like to spend moments of peace and relaxation, surrounded by my friends. I regenerate by this deep blue sea. ‘

Sweets

La Gelateria Katia
“An ice cream shop at the seafront. Their granitas, based on fresh, natural ingredients, are exceptional. I would recommend them. The same goes for their ice cream, delicious! ‘
Via Borgo Italia 84.

Milan

“This is where I have chosen to live and work. A true city, dynamic and constantly changing. ”

Bice
