I have walked intensely in Milano during three days one month ago and I haven't noticed the least bit of a shop selling films. If I had, I would remember it. For instance, when in Prague, I didn't miss Foto Skoda or Foto Pazdera.

My advice would be that you take a large stock of films with you before you go to Milano.

Milano is famous for the reputable "Fotocamera" collectibles shop, but they don't sell films...

No, wait. In Milano there is actually a huge (though not super easy to find) store that sells just about ANYTHING in the film based photography world, including any film that's still possible to find, along with all for the dark room:

here is where they are: http://www.puntofoto.it/dove_siamo.htm

Unfortunately, their web site seems to be in Italian only.. Ask if you need any help.

There is also a shop in Piazza Argentina:
http://www.centrofotocine.it/chi_siamo.html and I seem to remember, that Foto Ottica Cavour has some film on stock for Leica afficionados:http://www.fotootticacavour.com/dove-siamo/
and finally, don't forget to visit the New Old Camera, if only to have a look at Leica material available:

around 5euro per roll of 120 or 35mm HP5 Plus, not bad at all at

good to know in case I run out of film while in Milano or Firenze this summer!
