The Milan Brera Centre is in a late 19th century building with wrought iron balconies and terraces overlooking the multi-purpose Arena Civica stadium and the Sforzesco Castle, now a centre for the arts. A short walk away is the Brera fashion district in Old Milan, with its narrow alleys and art galleries, which has traditionally attracted writers, designers and other creative businesses. There are now many advertising and press agencies based in this area, as well as leading IT and telecoms companies. Milan also offers support for research and innovation in specialist fields and general business. The Milan Brera Centre is close to the main train station and easily accessed by car from the 'tangenziali' system of connecting urban motorways that surround the city.
