Social dinner

JOIN US FOR DINNER AT THE CASTLE WITH MICHELANGELO

Thursday 9th July 2020

 

 

 

 

Our Social Dinner will be held at Cortile della Rocchetta, in the magnificent medieval setting of the Sforza Castle in Milan. At walking distance from the Congress venue, the Castle is one of the most famous monuments in Milan.                                                                                                                                                     

The evening will start with a guided tour of the Museo d'Arte Antica (Museum of Ancient Art), which is located on the ground floor of the Corte Ducale (Ducal Court) at the Sforza Castle, and a visit to the Pietà Rondanini, one of Michelangelo’s masterpieces.

 

 

The rooms of the Museum of Ancient Art were once the living spaces of the Sforza court (large halls, frescoed ceilings and traces of the presence of some great art masters, Leonardo above all), and host a collection of some world-famous artefacts and works of art, such as Michelangelo’s Pietà Rondanini.

 

 

Later in the evening, you will enjoy a high-quality Italian cuisine buffet dinner at the historical Cortile della Rocchetta, with a selection of excellent Italian wines.
