Social Events

In addition to the Social dinner scheduled for Wednesday, September 7th, we are planning two guided tours.

The first tour is a relaxed guided walk in the city centre scheduled for the late afternoon of Thursday, September 8th. We will show you the most famous buildings in Milan’s city centre, such as the Sforza Castle, the Duomo, the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II and the Scala Opera House.

The second social event we are working on is a guided tour to the Pinacoteca Ambrosiana: one of the oldest museums in the world, it contains masterpieces by Michelangelo, Caravaggio and Leonardo da Vinci. The tour will end with a visit to the Biblioteca Ambrosiana, where you will admire Leonardo da Vinci’s Atlantic Codex: this is the world’s most extensive collection of Leonardo’s autograph writings, including studies in mathematics, hydraulics, engineering, philosophical reflections and even fables.

The cost of the guided tour is complimentary, while access to the Pinacoteca and Library is €14.50 per person. We need to know who is interested in participating in this tour to lock in the offer. Please write to indicating your interest as soon as possible.
