A stylish disaster -- Should we avoid Milan during 2015 Fashion Week?

Where can I buy affordable fashion and/or accessories while in Milan?

I'm staying in Milan until Tuesday evening, and I'd like to pick up something for a close friend's birthday while I'm here. I can't spend a huge amount of money (maybe $100-$150 max), but I'd love to get her something unique from Milan. She's kind of a fashionista, and she tends to have an Anthropologie-esque style. I'd be looking for something like a blouse, dress, unique accessory, or personal product. Where should I go? Any specific suggestions and/or products you can recommend? Thanks!

When was the Italian printer Carlo Belloni in operation?

I have a paper advertising item which, I am told, was printed by Carlo Belloni in Milan, Italy. The item appears to be from around 1920 to 1940 or perhaps earlier. For dating purposes, I would like to know when this printer was in operation. TIA

Please evaluate my route from Italy to Spain by car

I plan to drive from Venice, Italy to Valenica, Spain in April or May 2009 using the following route. I will stay for a few days or weeks in little spots along the way. I should have about six weeks in total. I mostly want to see a little of Spain and Italy, the French Riviera, Montpellier, Marseilles and finish at Valencia. Apart from that anything else I should try to see? Any parts of the chosen route I should avoid? What's driving like along that route? Any rental car companies which will let me pick up in Italy and drop off in Spain?

Milan, Florence, Rome hotel recommendations?

I'm travelling to Italy in late August and am looking for hotel recommendations for Milan, Florence, and Rome. I'm looking for not the most expensive, but not the least expensive. Maybe 3-4 stars? I'm also looking more for an "Italian" experience than a big chain hotel. I'd be happier in something that is smaller and older (if well kept) or more of a boutique-type place. I'll be travelling by train and won't have much more than 2 days per city, unfortunately, so a central location is important to me. If there are any Italians or Italy travellers who might be willing to advise me, I'd really appreciate it!
