About story HISTORY IN A NAME
Madama Hostel & Bistrot is located in a small Art Nouveau style building, perfectly in tune with Old Milan, where there was once a Police Station. The place was named after it since in Italian jargon the word Madama means police. It is a choice that pays homage to the history of this place, as one can also see from the name of some dishes on the menu and the original details of the former barracks perfectly integrated into the décor. An example of this is the peephole still in the main door of the hostel’s reception area, and old shutters, frames and doors that have been used to make some pieces of furnishings.
