MILAN ARCH WEEK
12-18 June, Triennale of Milano and Teatro Burri
As a natural evolution of the Festival MI/ARCH, created in 2013 by the Milan Polytechnic, the Milan Arch Week will take place between the Triennale and Teatro Burri in Parco Sempione, under the art direction of Stefano Boeri. A week of events, masterclasses and meetings dedicated to architecture and the urban transformations that have involved the city in recent years.
The schedule provides also guided tours in places of beautiful Milanese architecture, for example Villa Necchi Campiglio and Palazzo Mondadori, and includes cinema (Amos Gitai will be a guest) and music events (Fabri Fibra). The Arch week will end with a great morning at Bagni Misteriosi, near the former Caimi swimming pool.

MILAN PHOTO WEEK
Good news for the photography’s enthusiasts: this year Milano Photo Week is born directly from Milan Photo Festival, strongly urged by Milan City Council in order to increase the cultural supply.
The event, carried out in cooperation with ArtsFor, provides different exhibitions and workshops in museums, photographic studios, galleries and publishing houses, for experts and neophytes. We would like to point out, during the weekend, the initiatives organized by Muba – Museum for children and the performances of the Wide Photo Festa at piazza Gae Aulenti.
SOCIAL MEDIA WEEK

Organized by Business International – Fiera Milano Media, the Milan Social Week is one of the most waited events of the season: one week full of meetings, conferences and workshops about the evolution of social networks and the impact new technologies have on our life, joined by new business and web strategies experts all the time. The edition’s theme “Language and the Machine: Algorithms and the Future of Communication”, will be developed during five sessions and an introductive conference.
For the amateurs, we would like to suggest an exceptional event connected with SMW: on 11 June the FREE concert by the Filarmonica della Scala will take place in the suggestive frame of Piazza del Duomo.
