A shop, in Milan, must have at least 50 years of business to be considered a “historical store”. Then, it becomes a real attraction of great interest for tourists who want to visit a “living” monument which can tell the story of our city.
Citizens also fall in love with the oldest and most fascinating stores every day, which are distinguished by the new and big shopping chains (all looking the same!) for their unique character and magical atmosphere.
Nano Bleu, a historic shop
This year Nano Bleu is 68 years old and it has finally entered in the list of historic Milan shops. Since more than three generations, we make Milanese kids happy and we try to surprise tourists who come from all over the world with our vintage and new toys for all tastes … Finally the title title has been recognized! We want to share this joy with you because a shop is made not just with walls and products for sale, but with faces, handshakes, smiles and dreams. And if we talk about toys, everything takes an even more magical light, you can see through the shelves invaded by dozens of action figures, buildings, models, dolls … We are unable to list all our toy!
But we want to celebrate this new title, also remembering the other historic shops that are with us on this trip to the most authentic Milan …
