The economic motor of Italy, driven principally by its capital, Milan, but also by a network of smaller family businesses, the region has succeeded in developing productive activities in sectors as varied as agriculture, industry, finance and services....

Travellers often pass through on their way to southern Italy. Many tourists also stop to visit its winter sport resorts in the north, discover the charms of its Lakes district, visit the city of Milan (with its Duomo, the La Scala theatre and the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie that houses Leonardo Da Vinci's 'The Last Supper'), or simply relax in the region's central hills dominated by its vineyards.
