Cernusco sul Naviglio is located 16km east of Milan (Lombardy), with about 35,000 inhabitants with an average age of just over 40 years and about 6,500 under 18. There are more than 2,200 companies and about 320 shops. Over time the city has developed according to a harmonious urban design, around two fundamental areas: the large historic center made pedestrian in the 80s where there are more than 100 shops and numerous associative spaces; the monumental axis of the Naviglio, with the section of the 32 km cycle path that connects Milan to Trezzo d’Adda and the large green areas for outdoor sports.
Milano: World capital of fashion and design, Milan lives poised between a centuries-long historical and cultural tradition and a creative stance looking forward to innovation and the world at large. Its destiny is already in its name, Mediolanum, meaning “place in the middle” between different territories and peoples, a hub for trade and commerce from the very beginning. Born as a Celtic village it has been through the centuries the Capital of the Western half of the Roman Empire, a major Renaissance Court at the time of Ludovico il Moro and Leonardo da Vinci, a place of plunder for French, Spaniards, Austrians – finally to be annexed to the Kingdom of Italy in 1861. From the 18 century to the present Milan has never ceased to renew its look, from the Neo-Classical lines of Teatro alla Scala to the sumptuous Galleria Vittorio Emanuele and finally to the high-rise of its skyscrapers that, from Gio Ponti to the international archistars, have re-drawn its skyline.
Specialties: Tradition and innovation also co-exist in the Milan of taste, between ancient recipes and contemporary gourmet versions. History is represented by , with marrowbone steak and saffron rice, (fried meatballs), (roast doused in white wine). The typical Christmas cake is , now famous throughout the world.
The stage: A final 15.7 kilometer stage time trial with two riders on essentially the same time? Had you told the organizers this is where we would be on stage 21, they would have cheered.
Last day in the pro peloton for @HansenAdam he ends his cycling carreer in the grand tour he loved the most. Teammates for the last 6 years and colleagues since 2009. My respect for you is big. All the best in the world of triathlon.— Thomas De Gendt (@DeGendtThomas) October 25, 2020

The wine: Sorelle Bronca Prosecco Extra Dry
Notes: pale straw color with a hint of green; very distinctive classic Prosecco aroma of fresh-cut pear; the pear/apple fruit notes continue on the palate, with the Extra Dry level of sweetness very well balanced by fresh acidity. I drink Sorelle Bronca with some olives and a slice of salami while I am deciding what to make for dinner, but it would also be good with a light lunch or just by itself, unlike most Italian wines.
The food: Panna Cotta
