My Milan
by Alberto Malanchino

Actor Alberto Malanchino shows us around his neighbourhood, Porta Romana.
Home to the drama school Civica Scuola di Teatro Paolo Grassi where he honed his acting skills, Porta Romana is defined by sleek 19th century architecture and a cultural heart of art and creativity—as well as some of the city’s most vibrant bars.
The area of Milan has a special connection to Malanchino and his career as an actor, he debuted with his first play in Franco Parenti Theatre, with a monologue about his roots from Burkina Faso in West Africa.
“The beautiful thing about Milan is that it always changes, it’s a city in constant evolution, you close your eyes and reopen them and it’s already something else.”

Alberto can be seen in newly launched mini-series Summertime 2 on Netflix.
