A tour around Milano discovering its monuments, its stories, its music and its soul

Join this lecture to explore this fascinating and dynamic Italian city.


Milano is the financial and industrial capital of Italy. It is a modern city with a vibrant and chaotic life where people from all over the world live and work.
Although it is not usually considered as being an art city, Milano has lots of hidden monuments and lots of stories to tell.

This lecture will take us for an imaginary tour around the city discovering its main treasures, its life and its secrets. Some songs will be played during this walk to add a bit of flavour to the visit.

Some of the places which will be visited are:
Piazza Duomo, piazza dei Mercanti, piazza S. Alessandro, Chiesa di San Satiro and Castello Sforzesco.

Non mancate / Don’t miss it!

The talk will be followed by a social gathering with a glass of wine and nibbles.

To better arrange the necessary refreshments, it would be helpful if you could book in advance by emailing us at dante@newfuture.org

(Online event only)


This is a day that represents more than 800 million citizens from 47 different countries and pays tribute to the linguistic diversity of the European continent, with more than 200 languages of its own.


You are invited to take part in the rich Europe’s linguistic-cultural heritage, which is seeking to highlight the importance of learning foreign languages to spread their knowledge and increase their value. Last, but not least, also to motivate people to help their continuous learning throughout people’s life.

In order to raise people’s awareness on the wide variety of languages that characterise Europe, the Instituto Cervantes in Manchester in collaboration with us, Alliance Française de Manchester and Europia will organise a series of “trial classes” of the different European languages, together with other activities that aim to value our native languages.
