This Week!
.:. other / August, pronounced “o ghost” 
August 1st through 31, 2022

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, around a weekend, even the diehards surrender and abandon Milan.
.:. Some notable exceptions. Through August, visitors enjoy nearly every day the 23rd edition of the Triennale international exhibition, the Torre Branca, the Brera National Art Gallery, and the Poldi Pezzoli museum. The Gallerie d'Italia, too, are open in August -- and entrance is free on August 7. Nights out may be spent at the Base.
