Via Monte Napoleone is one of the most famous and most expensive streets in the world, considered one of the most luxurious areas and one of the major prêt-à-porter shopping centers. The street was born following the ancient layout of the Roman walls of Milan, which followed the course of Seveso river, which still runs under the road surface on the odd side of the street. Until the eighteenth century, the street was indicated in the maps of the city as the "District of Sant'Andrea" or the "District of the Bars of Sant'Andrea". With the entry of the Austrians into the city, the new administration placed the new city pawnshop in the street, which changed its name to "District del Monte di Santa Teresa". With the arrival of the French domination and the birth of the financial institution, the street changed its name once again to "District of Monte Napoleone", a name that was shortened to "District o the Monte" with the fall of the Kingdom of Italy. With the unification of Italy and the consequent reform of the names of the streets, the street was renamed with the current name. The aim was to cancel from the toponymy the intervention of the Austrians ,recently expelled from the city. Over the course of its history, the street has hosted several famous Milanese personalities: the writer Carlo Porta lived and died in Palazzo Taverna (street number 2), while on the opposite side, at street number 1, the poet and writer Tommaso Grossi used to live. In this street Giuseppe Verdi would have composed Nabucco in 1840. Historically, in the past, the street had the nickname "el Quartier de Riverissi", referring to the custom of the Milanese gentlemen to take off their hats as a sign of reverence, to greet a lady who had her home here. The street, during the Five Days of Milan in 1848, was the scene of the insurrection of the patriots against the Austrians: in fact, the coordination of the city forces at stake was located here. Since the end of the 1800s, the street has been defined as a street of luxury: more and more rich and important families moved there, and at the same time several internationally renowned antique dealers and jewelers opened one after the other (among which it is worth mentioning Cusi, official supplier of the Savoy Royal House, and, more recently, Bulgari). Today it is the center of the "Quadrilatero della Moda" for the presence of the shops of the most prestigious High Fashion brands, such as Valentino, Gucci, Dior, Hermès, Louis Vuitton, Fendi, Versace, Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, Loro Piana, Alberta Ferretti, etc
