Influencer and style consultant, Frank Gallucci has adopted a lifestyle that reflects what it is to “be Italian”. Having started his career 5 years ago, today he is a sought-after name in the menswear industry, and when he’s not boarding flights to important meetings around the world, the Southern Italian calls Milan home. He truly appreciates all forms of culture in his home city and beyond, and here he is sharing his secrets with DATS.

local - aperitivo - rustic
Located on some of Milan’s street corners, this inviting bar attracts a local crowd, post work or pre-dinner. Watch as groups of friends flock, either sat inside or gathered on the street with a spritz in hand.
museum - artsy - history
Have a taste of traditional Milan in one of the city’s most loved locations that is today open as a museum. Situated in a large garden filled with tennis court and swimming pool, the classic mansion is a serene escape from the city’s busy streets.
Local - easy-going - wine lover
Like a true Italian’s local, wine barrel intact for decoration or for use as a table, La Vineria overlooks the charming canals of Naviglio. Head here after work with the maddening crowd or for a chilled Sunday afternoon beverage.
