Brera is a district of Milan. It is located within the historical core of the city and it is centered on Brera street. The name stems from Medieval Italian “braida” or “brera”, derived from Old Lombardic “brayda” (often Latinized as “praedium”), meaning a land expanse either cleared of trees or naturally lacking them. This is because around the year 900, the Brera district was situated just outside Milan’s city walls and was kept clear for military reasons. Brera houses the Brera Academy of Fine Arts and the Brera Art Gallery, which prominently contributed to the development of Brera as an artists’ neighborhood and a place of bohemian atmosphere, sometimes referred to as “the milanese Montmartre”.
