Buildings overlooking Piazza Tito Minniti, at the centre of Isola (Photo: Andrea Gambaro) If Milan’s charm is famously discreet, then Isola is no exception. Sober lanes and orthogonal blocks form a chessboard-like pattern, scattered with less regular piazze and skirted at its northern edge by the old tram line.
