Our Story

Easy Milano, a pioneer in Milan’s free press industry in early 2000, was the first publication both in print and online focusing on the English speaking community. For nearly 18 years, Easy Milano published and distributed its magazine, every two weeks at over 150 target locations in Milan and hinterland.

Partnering with institutions and associations, including the many English-speaking consulates, embassies, chambers, and trade offices in Italy, Easy Milano quickly became the reference point for English speaking expats and international Italians.

Spanning nearly two decades, Easy Milano distributed over 3 million printed copies and published over 100,000 classified ads connecting businesses, groups, and individuals to its 35,000 monthly readers.

On many occasions, Easy Milano brought the community together through its events, including the official U.S. Election Night events with the U.S. Consulate General, the annual July 4th Independence Day celebrations, community Thanksgiving dinners and the creation of the first American Festival in Italy during Expo2015.

At the end of December 2017, Easy Milano founders, Amie Louie and Aaron Pugliesi published its last issue. Aaron is currently the Secretary-General and CEO of The British Chamber of Commerce for Italy. Amie has joined The British School of Milan Sir James Henderson as the Development Director. “We are so happy Celia has taken over the Easy Milano project as the new Managing Editor so that English speaking expats and international readers can continue to have a reliable source of information and contacts.”

Now with this website, readers can continue to place free and featured classified ads and find what they are looking for. As always, Easy Milano’s mission of promoting intercultural exchange remains. We hope to give expats a modern tool to overcome the difficulties and to share the joys of living in a foreign country.
