In order to fight any further diffusion of COVID-19, public and private meetings are strongly discouraged in all the country.
People must stay at home. A distance of a meter or so is kept in case of any personal encounters. Webcams have temporarily become the default communication tool.
Shops, bars, restaurants, museums, exhibitions, theaters, concert halls and cinemas are closed till Monday, April 13 at least; so are schools and universities. Supermarkets, pharmacies, tobacconists and computer shops are allowed to make exceptions to the rule. Sport events have been suspended at all. More official news here.

 
This elegant metal structure, 108.6 m high, was built by Gio Ponti, Cesare Chiodi and Ettore Ferrari between January and August 1933 as a part of the Triennale exhibition.

Its top platform 97 m high, which in the beginning was a restaurant but for safety reasons can no longer host seats and tables, is still a unique place to see Milan from above. There's a video on the CiaoMilano Facebook page.

The tower was closed in 1972. Its restoration - courtesy of the famous Milanese liquor distillery, Fratelli Branca - began in 1985. Since February 2002 the tower is officially open year-round.

Through mid-October 2019, the Torre Branca has the following opening times
Tue 9:30pm-midnight;
Wed 10:30am-12:30pm, 4-6:30pm and 9:30pm-midnight;
Thu 9:30pm-midnight;
Fri 2:30-6pm and 9:30pm-midnight;
Sat 10:30am-2pm, 2:30-7:30pm and 9:30pm-midnight;
Sun 10:30am-2pm, 2:30-7:30pm and 9:30pm-midnight.
With bad weather, the tower may close down.
