Agosto, around town, Milano
 
.:. other / August, pronounced “o ghost” 
August 1st through 31, 2017

August is the month when most of the Milanese go on holiday. Signs saying Chiuso per Ferie, closed for vacation, are posted almost everywhere and things to do and see in town are few and far between. Assorted open-air spots - the Sforza Castle among them - provide backdrops for a few concerts and performances.
.:. The city is even more deserted around August 15, called Ferragosto. When Ferragosto comes, as this year, next to a weekend, even the diehards surrender and abandon Milan.
.:. Some notable exceptions. Through August, visitors enjoy nearly every day all the Triennale attractions, the Torre Branca, and the Poldi Pezzoli museum. which is free on Wednesday 9 and Wednesday 23. The Brera National Art Gallery, too, is open in August, and the Gallerie d'Italia are open free on the Ferragosto day.
.:. Even the exhibition ground where the Expo 2015 was in full blossom two years ago can be visited again.
