A transgression against the natural rights of Deaf people to use and develop sign language - the infamous Milan 1880 Revolution - has created a turbulent legacy which exerts its influence to this day. There would never again be another Milan 1880. Or, so we thought... As the story begins, an unknown force calling itself MILAN inexplicably transforms the entire British Deaf people into hearing people, and sign language is reduced to near extinction. Two of the Deaf survivors, JOHN McCALVIN and his ladyfriend, DAWN WINTERS, soon find themselves in fear of Milan's three hunters, led by the notorious female villain, REDLIPS. Dawn is captured by the hunters whilst John and the mysterious RICHARD COX, who has a 'personal issue' with Redlips, conspire to search for, and retrieve the Talisman of Signs, sought also by Milan. John discovers that he is "The One" to use the Talisman's power to destroy Milan before it achieves world domination with the destruction of Deaf people, sign language and also a mystical place which exists in closely-guarded secret. The battle to save them is on... MILAN is an exciting and sprawling Deaf fantasy epic, written out of an alarming and key chapter of Deaf history. It has been written in a Deaf-friendly way that is accessible to everyone, Deaf or hearing, and of most ages. A VISUAL GLOSSARY is included to illlustrate key characters, architectural features and plan views. For more information please visit: www.milan1880.com

John Marvin started the town of Milan in 1831 by placing a two-story log building beside a dirt Native American trail. The Saline River was just a few steps away. About that time, Native Americans were either moving to reservations west of Michigan or blending in with the melting pot. Milan and its neighboring communities, such as Azalia, Paint Creek, and Mooreville, grew quickly with the influx of settlers from out East. Shoemakers arrived, along with grocers, flour mills, and even cheese factories. The Milan Area Historical Society holds a treasure trove of photographs, maps, and drawings showing the heritage in and around Milan. One of its citizens was nationally known for his scale inventions. Other citizens achieved notoriety for pulling off a stock scam in New York promoting the Electric Sugar Refining Company. Two magnificent homes near Milan were built with "sugar money."

Fascism, Architecture, and the Claiming of Modern Milan, 1922-1943 chronicles the dramatic architectural and urban transformation of Milan during the nearly twenty years of fascist rule. The commercial and financial centre of Italy and the birthplace of fascism, Milan played a central role in constructing fascism's national image and identity as it advanced from a revolutionary movement to an established state power. Using a wide range of archival sources, Lucy M. Maulsby analyses the public buildings, from the relatively modest party headquarters to the grandiose Palace of Justice and the Palazzo del Popolo d'Italia, through which Mussolini intended to enhance the city's image and solidify fascism's presence in Milan. Maulsby establishes the extent to which Milan's economic structure, social composition, and cultural orientation affected Il Duce's plans for the city, demonstrating the influences on urban development that were beyond the control of the fascist regime. By placing Milan's urban change in its historic context, this book expands our understanding of the relationship between fascism and the modern city.

As one of the main European economic, political and religious centers throughout the late medieval and Renaissance period, Milan is the focus of this much-needed work on one of the crown jewels of the Spanish Empire. This study reworks the traditional narrative depicting Spanish rule as the primary factor of decadence in seventeenth-century Italy: in reality the Spanish monarchy provided new opportunities for wealth and prosperity to Milan and its elites. The city took advantage of its new important strategic and financial functions within the Spanish empire and used its extended network to maintain a primary economic and political role in Europe.
