Whether they are sisters of the mother or sisters of the father, it is not important: the aunts are undoubtedly an important figure in the life of families. They are the ever-present reference point to which you can turn to find comfort and courage. While for the aunts it is beautiful to feel an integral part of the life of their grandchildren and allow them to grow with serenity and joy of life.
If we combine the masterful love of the aunts with the mastery of traditional craftsmanship, unique designs, functional features and practicality, here we get Le Zie di Milano! In fact, Le Zie di Milano is a company specialized in the production and design of furniture and furnishing accessories for the modern home.
Le Zie di Milano was born in the heart of the Milanese city as a project of two families - the Vecchi family and the Fumagalli family, a union of different professional experiences that is proposed as a model for an "extended" family that is able to look at the functionality of the home with the same sensibility of a loving aunt: able to maintain a discreet profile, but also to lavish on those looks and in those caresses that, even if of short duration, are able to put at ease and reassure every member of the family .
The furniture of Le Zie di Milano behaves exactly like an aunt in the flesh! The design of the furnishing complements of Le Zie di Milano is designed specifically to blend into any living environment to pass almost "unnoticed" and to give importance to the home and objects we cherish. Such a studied and sophisticated design could only come from the experience and creativity of one of the most successful Italian architects today: Marcello Vecchi, CEO and designer of the company. Le Zie di Milano is only the latest of Marcello Vecchi's achievements: a graduate in engineering and architecture, he is the winner of numerous national and international awards in the design and architecture sector, including the prestigious Compasso d'Oro award, or Die Gute Industrieform. Indeed, it is more a palmares than a curriculum vitae!
From a well-known company in the furnishing sector comes to the great competence of the Fumagalli family: in fact, the production direction is entrusted to Lorenzo Fumagalli.
And if the words of Virginia Wolf "behind every great man there is always a great woman" can still have value, at Le Zie di Milano the great women represent the structure of the company! Starting from the wife and daughter of Marcello Vecchi, Marta Viola and Viola Vecchi, the former, press office and social media, the second being responsible for communication and graphics; to continue with the women Fumagalli, Beatrice and Federica, responsible for marketing and public relations.
Last but not least, Rosa Orlandini: mother of Marcello Vecchi, art professor at the Istituto Marangoni in Milan in the 1950s, creator of the fabulous mannequins that have become the symbol of Le Zie di Milano. A woman who could not be described better if not by the same words of Le Zie di Milano: “A great little woman with a sparkling artist's touch, an extraordinary hand combined with a fantasy and a magical elegance that has left us these figures that have determined the fortune and the recognition of the products of the Aunts of Milan ".

Le Zie di Milano products have the advantage of having very small dimensions, suitable for fitting into any living environment, even if with reduced dimensions. The limited dimensions are not, however, a brake on the capacity and functionality: bookcases, bottle racks, and flower holders are based on an idea of a modular and easy to assemble system that allows to obtain customized solutions suitable for any environment. The furnishing complements of Le Zie di Milano are designed as intelligent, neutral and elegant beech systems that highlight objects. Minimal design and high-quality solid wood - obviously 100% Made in Italy - are the essential characteristics of Le Zie di Milano!
Quality of raw materials and craftsmanship, but also able to reduce the ecological footprint. Each product is delivered with the appropriate assembly kit that can also be used when the product has already "run its day". Every Le Zie product in Milan fully meets the needs of eco-sustainability: at the end of its life, bookcases, bottle racks, and plant holders can be dismantled piece by piece, ethically addressing the problem of environmental sustainability by differentiating the various components of the product.
