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.



“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. ‘


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.


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


“This is of course a classic, but I am a fan of risotto Milanese. And Bice makes both the best and most iconic risotto Milanese. ”
