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.

.:. other / August, pronounced “o ghost” 
August 1st through 31, 2021

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 concerts and performances.
.:. The city is even more deserted around August 15, called Ferragosto. When Ferragosto comes, as this year, on 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, the Brera National Art Gallery, and the Poldi Pezzoli museum, open every Wednesday till 10pm. The Gallerie d'Italia, too, are open in August -- and entrance is free on August 15. Nights out may be spent at the Base.
