This Week!
In order to fight any further diffusion of Covid-19, people are advised to be very cautious when meeting others. A distance of a meter or so must be kept - and a face mask (better if surgical) worn when being indoor - in case of any personal encounters.
.:. Though Milan and Lombardy are still at risk, some behaviours are allowed. Not only shops are at work, and bars and restaurants may serve, but also museums, theaters and cinemas operate again. Starting from Friday, August 6, however, entrance to many indoor venues is allowed only to people who can provide one of the COVID-19 green certifications, in paper or digital format, issued in order to certify they got an anti-SARS-CoV-2 vaccination, healed from COVID-19, or passed a fast or molecular antigen test with negative result for the SARS-CoV-2 virus performed within the last 48 hours. Curfew suspended.

.:. The Compasso d’Oro ("Golden Compass") award was the first institutional recognition in the field of industrial design ever presented in the world. It was established in Milan after an intuition by Gio Ponti, the great architect and designer, in 1954.
.:. The Compasso d’Oro historical collection has been open to the public since May 25, 2021. It's displayed in a purposefully revamped building, providing a proper museum for the history of the "made in Italy" design.
.:. Temporary exhibitions regularly complement the permanent ones, which include "The spoon and the city", "Career Manifesto. A tribute by Italian graphic designers to the Masters of the Compasso d’Oro", and "Compasso d’Oro, spanning the world".
