In this section you will find some details and additional information about the B&B and the surrounding area.
SURROUNDINGS … from the Blue Note to Eataly, from the vertical forest to Corso Como, all that Milan has to offer and how to reach it, comfortably, from our B&B in via Keplero.
DETAILS … The house has been renovated, lovingly preserving the details and characteristics of its age; you will climb the staircase with granite steps and wrought iron handrail, after having passed through the double wooden door and the Liberty glass door. All modern comforts have been discreetly added: electric shutters, double glazed windows, timed lights….
At the entrance and in the breakfast area there is a bookcase, which has also become the logo of the B&B, where you can consult tourist guides and information about Milan and beyond.
In my travels around Australia I have often had the privilege of visiting remote Aboriginal communities where I have been able to directly support the artists by purchasing their work. Each Aboriginal painting in the B&B tells a different story …
“Summer Heat”, by artist Ingy Roser (Ingy’s Originals, Aboriginal Arts & Craft, Robina, Queensland, Australia), which you will find above the loft bed in the “Yellow” room.
“Clapping Stick, Coolamon, Digging Stick & Digeridoo” by Katie Lerla (Laarri Gallery, Yiyili Community, Halls Creek, Kimberley, Western Australia), also in the Yellow Room.
The ‘magical’ Bush Medicine Leaves by Selina Numina (Utopia, Northern Territory, Australia), located in the breakfast room.
The Gazebo in the garden is lit and heated in winter, and around the hexagonal marble table you can relax, meet other guests…
The B&B is located in Zone 2, one of the nine districts of the Milan municipality, within the perimeter of the Directional Centre according to the 1953 master plan. The Maggiolina district owes its name to the ancient Cascina (farmhouse) of the same name, which stood along the Seveso river as early as the 11th century.
The B&B cottage historically belongs to the “Villaggio Postelegrafonico” block. Built in 1920 to a design by arch. Giovanni Broglio by the Società Cooperativa Edificatrice, “La Postelegrafonica” was built for Post Office employees. Built on the axis of expansion to the north of Milan of the Berutiano plan at the beginning of the century, the Village has streets with a sinuous course, typical of the Anglo-Saxon garden-city. The villini were born as a new solution compared to the typical council houses of the early post-war period.
The complete renovation of the villa was carried out by architect Milo Pedrini with love and total respect for the original architectural features, both inside and out.
The name given to the K34-B&B located at 34 Keplero Street is a contraction of the address, i.e. the first letter of the street and the house number.
