Yesterday we spent the day in sunny Milan. We had a wander around in the main shopping street which was quite full even for a Tuesday.

For lunch we went to the Brian & Barry Building (again), for a piadina at Eataly on the -1 floor. I had the classic prosciutto, squacquerone cheese & rocket, and it was very good! If you haven’t had a piadina before then I recommend trying one in Italy as it is a nice lighter option to a sandwich. It reminds me a bit of a tortilla, but the difference is that it’s made from flour instead of corn for a softer flavour.

Then we went to Piazza Affari to look at this 13 feet tall sculpture of a massive middle finger in front of the stock exchange. It was designed by Mauritzio Cattelan who pokes fun at popular culture, history, and religion with black humor. The sculpture is called L.O.V.E. which is an acronym of libertà (freedom), odio (hate), vendetta (revenge), and eternità (eternity), but is popularly known as just “The Middle Finger”.

“Officially it’s name is L.O.V. E. – so it stands for love – but everyone can read between the lines and take away the message they see for themselves.” – Maurizio Cattelan

The day ended with a coffee at the Juicebar, a nice place but I might have to go back to try one of their juices next time.

That Scandinavian feeling is a blog by Ingrid Opstad, a Norwegian journalist living in Italy. Ingrid wants her blog to represent the feeling of coziness and calm with a Nordic simplistic, minimalistic style. The blog is intended to share her knowledge and love for Scandinavia; touching upon everything from interiors, design, lifestyle, travel to hygge. A place where you can get inspired to find that Scandinavian feeling yourself, no matter where in the world you are.
