Armani Park in Milan

I have photographed the Armani wall before, but I had not noticed the little park in front of the wall until recently. In my defence, last time I was in front of the wall it was covered in a huge photo of David Beckham proudly wearing Armani underwear – very nice. David has been replaced and I was able to drag my eyes away from the wall.

not as good as David

It is hard to get an idea here of the size of this wall – it is huge. You can get a sense of it by looking at the people underneath. There is a delightful little park below the photo, a green space between the buildings.

The park is maintained by Emporio Armani in collaboration with the Milan authorities. I’m sure it is popular with locals.

Look for the park – and the wall- on the corner of Via Broletto and Via del Orso.

I have trawled back through thousands of photos and I have found David!!! Lucky you.

David Beckham in 2008


  1. Lucky us indeed! Grazie!

    • He is a handsome devil, isn’t he? Lucky Victoria.

  2. There must be a soccer ball in there?

  3. Nice piece of eye candy.

    Not sure I’d want to share my husband with the world, in his undies!!!

    • I think it should be shared.

  4. yowza!

  5. No soccer ball and no socks I believe, why else would Victoria call him “Golden Balls”!!!! 😉

    • I’m sure he has a lovely personality and that is why Victoria loves him so much.

  6. hehe the “wall of David”-a non naturally occurring phenomenon that is a tourist attraction in itself! 😛

    • It is a pity he has gone now.

  7. Jeepers – who needs personality!

  8. Boom… What a hottie! Lucky us indeed. I quiet like the idea of having a wall like this, Canberrans just don’t seem to get into the billboard, I might put forward this idea, I mean… Who wouldn’t want to drive by this everyday???

  9. In general I like almost all Armani desigs. Now I know I also like -and very much- their wall in Milan and the little park… and that 2008 underwear advertisment!

    I agree, something so beautiful has to be showed, shared, just at a visual level…

    • Of course we only want to look.

  10. All I have to say is…..thank you.

  11. Thankyou Mr Beckham.

    • And Mr Armani for sharing him with the world.

  12. Good grief, no wonder you’ve never noticed the park before! I forgot everything I’d read when I got to the last photo in your post.. 🙂

    • He is really something to behold isn’t he?

  13. He certainly keeps your eyes focused on his undies.

    • Which is what Mr Armani had in mind I am sure.

  14. […] to see our lovely builders, here to see the Giacosa boy, here to see the delights at Armani and here to see quite a lot of David Beckham. GA_googleAddAttr("AdOpt", "1"); GA_googleAddAttr("Origin", […]
