I am heading over to Italy for a cycling tour in the Piedmont region.. probably flying into Milan. A lot of the meals will be covered by the tour, and I have no doubt that I will eat like an Italian Viking.
I am sure a thread here touches on a good places to eat in Milan (the night before we go to meet the group), but what about kitchen stuff? Anyone with experience in the area (either the city or the region in general), know a unique place or two for kitchenware - either implements/gadgets or things like servingware or linens? I don't want the Italian equivalent of Bed Bath and Beyond - just like finding things that may be unique to the region/country..
