Milan is set in the heart of the Po Basin of northern Italy, halfway across the immense plain spreading between the Ticino and Adda rivers as you can see in Milan map. The site is 400 feet (122 metres) above sea level. To the north lies the great sweep of the southern flank of the Alps. Between this semicircle of mountains and the course traced by the Po River to the south, there lies a zone that is arid toward the north but swampy near the Po, where it turns into an expanse of marshy groves and rice fields. It is at the line of demarcation between these two areas, which are strongly differentiated, that Milan has risen, although now only swamplands mark the site of the ancient city.
Milan population saw a rapid increase after World War II (1939–45); it grew by roughly 400,000 in the 15 years after 1950. The increase was due mainly to the flood of immigrants from the impoverished Italian south and northeast seeking improved conditions in the factories of the industrial north. This mass internal migration peaked during the years of the “economic miracle” (1958–63), when thousands of immigrants arrived daily at Milan Central Station as its mentioned in Milan map. Luchino Visconti encapsulated the drama of this moment in his classic film Rocco e i suoi fratelli (1960; Rocco and His Brothers).
For the first half of the 20th century, the mechanical industries dominated the Milanese economy. The production of automobiles (such as those by Alfa Romeo), motorcycles and motor scooters (notably the Lambretta brand), airplanes, major electric appliances, railroad materials, and other metalworking employed almost half the workforce (see Milan map). Other significant production included the massive rubber plant of the Pirelli company, which remains important today. Chemical production was of considerable importance at one time but has now largely moved away from the city.

Milan, Italian Milano, city, capital of Milano province (provincia) and of the region (regione) of Lombardy (Lombardia), northern Italy as you can see in Milan Lombardy - Italy map. It is the leading financial centre and the most prosperous manufacturing and commercial city of Italy. The fact that Milan is at a distance from much of the rest of Italy, that it is peripheral in a geographic sense, does not explain its position of “second city,” a position it has always vainly fought. Indeed, some of the greatest European capitals are peripheral in this sense.
Yet although Rome remains the political capital of Italy, Milan has long been known as its “moral capital.” When the Milanese assert that their city is the moral capital, they not only express the ancient regionalism typical of all Italy and known as campanilismo (a reference to the church bell of each city), but they also refer to the city quality and values, historical as well as contemporary as its mentioned in Milan Lombardy - Italy map. Since the late 1970s, as most traditional industries have either closed down completely or relocated to nonurban locations, Milan has become Italy first and most successful “postindustrial” city, with a concentration of lucrative service industries, such as advertising and wholesale and retail trade, particularly those related to the fashion industry.
Milan, the most important economic centre of Italy, owes this fact partly to its geographical position, which always has given it advantages as a market centre; indeed, the most important wholesale markets of Italy are still in Milan. The city is located at a nexus of the traffic routes of the Po River valley and lies on the borderline between the advanced agriculture of the fertile irrigated plains of the south and the limited agriculture of the north as its shown in Milan Lombardy - Italy map. Milan also sits on the main route connecting Italy with the rest of Europe. Industrial development in the 20th century further stimulated commercial activity in the city.

Milan city is recognized as a major world fashion and design capital, and it has thus been ranked by GaWC as an Alpha world city in 2010, as well as the 42nd most important global city as you can see in Milan on world map.

In the 1980s, as several fashion firms based in the city became internationally successful (such as Armani, Versace and Dolce & Gabbana), Milan started to be recognized as one of the world fashion capitals as its shown in Milan on world map. The traditionally affordable and practical, yet stylish and chic attire produced by the city stylists made it a serious global competitor, threatening Paris century-long status as the world capital of haute couture. Also the largest and most important example of Gothic architecture in Italy, the Duomo, Milan Cathedral, is the fourth largest cathedral in the world after St. Peter Basilica in Rome, the Cathedral of Seville and a new cathedral in the Ivory Coast. Built between 1386 and 1577, it hosts the world largest collection of marble statues with the widely visible golden Madonna statue on top of the spire, nicknamed by the people of Milan as Madunina (the little Madonna), that became one of the symbols of the city.
