AIPPI World Congress – Milan 2016

Milano in September: “the city to be”

Milano is a great and safe city, a must-see in Italy and Europe. Notwithstanding its reputation as a city focused on business and finance, the truth is that Milano is full of history, culture and beautiful spots.

The city is full of cultural life and activities every September, a month with a concentration of important events, such as the following:

Milano Fashion Week – Women

There are more than 170 catwalks spread around different locations in the centre of town during the fashion week, with many international VIP’s making an appearance at one of the world’s premiere women’s fashion events. Milan Fashion Week is not just catwalks; it features many side events and exclusive parties in luxurious locations organized by Fashion Houses, PR Agencies and Modelling Agencies.

F1 Grand Prix d’Italia – Milano, Monza

The Monza Grand Prix is one of the world’s best known historical automobile race circuits and attracts thousands of people every year. In the last few years, we have seen numerous sideevents developing in the weeks before and after the race, involving people from the entourage and F1 teams and the Event Agencies which organize the race, with safe-driving tests and many interesting activities.

MiTo September in Music – Milano/Torino

MiTo has since its first edition become one of the MUST events for Milanese people who love music: a rich calendar of concerts and events with musicians from many countries, presenting different styles such as classical music, opera, jazz and traditional music, who invade Milano and Torino for a month of performances.

Milano Film Festival

If you love cinema, you cannot miss the Milano Film Festival: different locations each evening for a week, many films including big shots and independent jewels scheduled during the days of the Festival, with reduced entrance fees and very often the possibility to see films before the official launch.
