The city of Milan, with its centuries of history and art, is a world-class economic and cultural hub, a capital of business, history, art, fashion, design and culinary delights to suit every taste, budget, and requirement. Its extraordinary aesthetic traditions have been the humus for the new design projects, recently commissioned to leading architects. The city also enjoys an enviable setting in Lombardy. Filled with enchanting art cities, this is the Italian region with the largest natural parks and splendid lakes – like Como – surrounded by mountains and offers many opportunities for delegates.
