25 May Business events in June
The acclaimed summer heat is coming but Milan is not intimidated by high temperatures. The city has already a lot of business events in June on the schedule, that will make Milan the centre of exhibitions, fashion shows, meetings and conventions.
It’s sometimes hard to choose among so many possibilities, so we’ve selected some of the best events for you, easily reachable thanks to the strategic position of the apartments of the Residenza Ascanio Sforza.
MILAN ARCH WEEK
From 12 to 18 June, at Triennale di Milano and Teatro Burri
Let’s start from a rich and varied event. The Milan Arch week will be a week of meetings, debates and performances located at the Triennale of Milan and Burri Theatre in Sempione Park. The core of the event will relate to the themes of architecture, urban development and their role in the city’s transformation.
The Milan Arch week is the evolution of the MI/ARCH festival of 2013, created by the Milan Polytechnic, which, for four years, has been hosting internationally renowned architects, whose contributions have been capable of changing the world’s cities look.
On these bases the first edition of Milan Arch week was born; thanks to the artistic supervision of Stefano Boeri, who designed the famous Italian skyscraper called “Bosco Verticale”, the event will have the purpose of bringing Milan back to the core of worldwide debate about architecture, attracting to the city the visions of renowned architects, researchers and academics from all over the world.
On the schedule, you can find visits to the studios, tours to the buildings and many workshops, but also the tribute to Aldo Rossi and Gillo Dorfles, a famous artist and intellectual critic, now 107 years old.
There will be also important meetings: with Peter Eisenman, an American critic, with Elisabeth Diller, who has got a key role in the design of the New York High Line, with the architect of Burkina Faso Francis Kéré and with Oliviero Toscani.
From 21 to 23 June, from 7:00 pm. Itinerant locations.
We would like also to suggest you an itinerant event: the Architects Party, promoted by Towant, the agency that plans informal events for architecture studios around the world.
From 21 to 23 June it will be possible to go to happy hours in Milan architecture firms that will have joined the initiative. A special occasion for recalling people interested in the subject in renowned studios or creative locations, and for meeting the experts!
Little known fact: parties will be in streaming thanks to an Active-Cam and, at the end of the whole manifestation (which has been located in a lot of cities since April), the winner of the Architects PartyAward 2017 will be elected!
MILAN MEN’S FASHIONS
From 16 to 20 June
Does the fashion world intrigue you? Well, you can’t miss the June edition of Milan Men’s Fashion! It is an international appointment with the most important Italian fashion maison. Looking back to the previous editions, about 100 fashion shows, with more than 1.000 Italian and foreign journalists, are estimated. On the runways the best clothes selected for the Spring/Summer collection will walk the catwalk.
In addition, this edition will be the occasion for a small revolution: Diesel Balck Gold is going to present also its women collection. This is the proof that, as the founder Renzo Rosso said, we’re moving to a more genderless way of thinking.
We would like to point out the White Show, from Saturday 17 to Monday 19 June in the showroom in via Tortona. It is an international contemporary fashion showcase which will bring less-known brands to the attention of the general public. These brands, indeed, are already considered as the most innovative new voices around the world.
MILAN PHOTO WEEK 2017
From 5 to 11 June
Have you ever been fascinated by the ability of trapping reality and creating an art work only thanks to a camera? Then, you can take advantage of your stay in the city to join the first edition of Milan Photo Week, concurrently with Milan Photo Festival!
Museums, galleries, photographers, publishing houses and many others will be the protagonists of the manifestation which is open to several creative opportunities. The event has a varied schedule: shows, workshops, digital and analogue projects.
The Photo Week, organised by Milan City Council in collaboration with ArtsFor, will aim at showing how photography is not only a material expression but also a spiritual one; a memory language capable of connecting past and present and, at the same time, opening up to future innovations.
SOCIAL MEDIA WEEK
From 12 to 16 June, at Talent Garden (Milano fiera)
Social networks have become integral part of our days; their use range from leisure to professional times, with a systemic connection. Do you want to learn more?
Let’s sign up for one of the most expected events in Milan, the Social Media Week!
One week of conferences, analyses and debates with managers, testimonials, experts and critics about new business, web strategies and, above all, about today’s role of social media. The theme of this Milanese edition, directed by the Business International, will be “Language and the Machine”.
They will be days full of ideas and interesting debates, useful to realise what’s happening in our society and prepare ourselves to deal with future changes! For more information about schedule and registrations, you can check here.
Lastly, if you would like to get your mind off for a little while and you have always dreamed of joining a unique event framed in a beautiful location, we suggest the free concert by the Filarmonica of the Scala, which will be open air in Piazza Duomo, on 11 June at 9.30 p.m.
Staying in Milan during this month will not be boring for sure; new opportunities are just around the corner!
