Federica Gabardi, a Milan native and a Women’s Empowerment Expert will be our guest speaker.

Milan is glamour, trendy and fashionable. It is very appreciated by tourists who have rewarded it with a boom in arrivals: about 8.4 million in 2017. A number that has guaranteed the fourteenth place in the ranking of the most visited cities in the world, once again surpassing Rome, stopped at the seventeenth with 7.3 million visitors.

In short, Milan has proven to have secret weapons that are not limited to the attractiveness of the business that has always been hosting. From the Romanesque churches to the Milan Cathedral, from the Castello Sforzesco to Leonardo’s locks along the Naviglio, from the hidden courtyards to the award-winning “Bosco Verticale.”

This presentation will allow you to love Milan and discover what is at the base of its affirmation in the panorama of the great European and world cities.

Topics:

  • History of Milan;

  • Milan’s evolution: from the Lombard capital to a world-famous city

  • Monuments and places of interest

  • Milan of the Milanese.
