Milan: Pasticceria Marchesi (Pastry Shop)

A must-see in Milan for those who love gastronomy and want to get to know one of the most famous and traditional pastry shops in Milan: the Pasticceria Marchesi. Created in 1824 and acquired by the Prada group, the pastry shop has now three addresses in the Italian city.

Where to eat in Milan: Pasticceria Marchesi
A very traditional pastry shop in Milan, Pasticceria Marchesi was founded in 1824 and today it stands at the same address, being a historical pastry shop in Milan and even a symbol of the city. With so much tradition, as soon as I was around, I had to stop by at the traditional address to check it myself.

The pasticceria (Italian word for “pastry shop”) really began only with sweets and after 1900 also became a coffee shop. The traditional address on Via S. Maria alla Porta 11 / a, is the same since its opening and this address is more like a “fast coffee” kind of place with no place to sit or just to take something home / hotel (which by the way, when you take away, its wrapped in this lovely packaging of the beginning of this post).

 

Sweets in Milan: Pasticceria Marchesi

About the sweets from the Marchesi pastry shop: delicious! Marchesi really has the tradition it deserves, I went to visit the traditional address and tried some traditional sweets and I also couldn’t resist to take others for later. (Yes, I love sweets.)

About the prices, I would say it’s a very normal price, just so you can have an idea, the sweets on the photo above had a price by weight and they cost only € 5. (And they were delicious indeed.)

So, when thinking about where to eat in Milan, if you’re craving some sweets, stop by at one of Marchesi’s address.

The second address is the new address opened in 2015, after the brand has been acquired by Prada. Unlike the traditional address, the new addresses have a space with tables and seats and a beautiful design chosen by Miuccia Prada herself.


Swiss CellVibe arrives in Italy

With Swiss technology, arrives in Italy a new treatment for cellulite that promises good results in a short period of time and it’s called Swiss CellVibe.

I’ve been to the launching event here in Milan at the White Medi Spa to know more about the CellVibe, how it works and what are the results of this innovative treatment.

A lot is said about cellulite and how to get rid of it, being one of the biggest complains when women talk about their bodies. Therefore, any new treatments on this subject are always welcomed by the female public!

To find a solution, more and more women are turning to aesthetic medicine experts, dermatologists and / or wellness centers to have additional support when eating healthy and exercise are not enough anymore in combating the cellulite.
In this sense, real and effective help comes from the Swiss technology company Electro Medical Systems SA, which, with its 30 years of experience in the production of precision medical devices for more than 100 countries worldwide, has also chosen to launch in Italy a non-invasive solution designed by medical research and designed for beauty professionals: Swiss CellVibe® is a shock-absorbing device that not only reduces cellulite, but also improves skin consistency and elasticity, while it stimulates the cell metabolism and promotes blood and lymph circulation.

A recent study about the Swiss CellVibe® treatment found that applying the device for 30 minutes in just 8 sessions produced an average reduction in a stage of cellulitis – from III to II or II to I – and the reduction Of 2% of the thigh circumference.
Swiss CellVibe® – clinically proven (Schladraff et al., 2014) – is the result of years of EMS research and analysis on shock waves, which allowed the Swiss company to produce some of the most popular medical devices for treatment of kidney stones and osteoarticular pain. With this expertise, EMS has chosen to propose its patented technology to beauty professionals for the treatment of cellulite.
