    Extremely interesting art museum, I think it's better than Brera. There is a collection of paintings from the time of Bishop Borromeo, as well as more recent works. Here is kept the copy from which the Last Supper of Davinci is restored. In addition to the art gallery, there is a library with over 30,000 manuscripts, and the most interesting here are the manuscripts of Leonardo, which you can see (they change periodically).
    There is no waiting in line for tickets and entry is very fast.

    Beautiful little find after hunting around for the entrance. Although it’s not properly open unless for events, you can still see it from the entrance hallway. It’s stunning.

    Arriving in Milan from the motorways of the lakes and from the highway for Turin on the left you will find this large exhibition and congress center, with a metal drape that wraps its head towards the three towers

    My first comment is that the staff is really very helpful! I cannot find fault with any of them. The library has an INCREDIBLE amount of books and documents available to consult free of charge. However, there are two things that I find really irritating. One is that this library is in Corso Di Porta Vittoria - slap bang in the middle of town, situated in an old building - however, apart from the facade and the internal garden - which is on the main road - as soon as you walk into the library you wonder what happened to the old building, It's all very run down and ugly and sort of thrown together, absolutely not what you would expect from a library in this location. We went in May and although the temperatures were way higher than what you would normally expect for the season, the one place that should have been cool and comfortable (the reading room- where people were genuinely studying) was sweltering! I cannot say if they have air-conditioning or not, but I certainly hope so because in July it would be unbearable. The second thing that bothered me was the fact that there are so many people "scrounging" the free wi-fi! Now, I don't mean to sound horrible, but it is a library after all, yet the amount of people using the space in the seating areas and chairs and tables placed around the rooms, for Facebook/Youtube and other social networks really surprised me. Why do I complain, you may ask yourself? I'm asking myself that same question, but to me it just seemed really wrong to to be there just to take advantage of the free internet service.

    Impressive library with thousands of very old leather bound books and beautiful domed and frescoed ceilings. A relaxing place to study or to while away a few hours with a Kindle

    Visited the fair on the occasion of Homi Milan in January. This fair surprisingly is getting smaller and less important year by year. Many major companies in our industry do not participate in this event any more. Did not see some important customers visiting the fair, either.

    Seated in Sempione Park, the building was built in the early 1950s. The roof is a continuous concrete slab that rests only on twelve points arranged along the arc of the circle ; and the remaining part of the perimeter , which opens to the park, is free and has a rhythmic repetition of aluminum doors and windows on the facade. This gives the impression that the library is a space open , transparent, with its ability to work for the community and people can find the place whenever needed .

    This is a popular spot with the Milanese crowd and for researchers. The café ordering process was just too long, not enough staff on board, patience and time are a must, even in fast paced Milan.

    Located at Porta Venezia, this small public library is very pretty in terms of architecture and design. What is not so nice is numerous grafitti all over it. Such a dissrespect.

    Originally the building was a church in honour of St. Theresa and St. Joseph, it was part of a complex built in the 17th century for the Barefooted Carmelites.
    It has a Greek cross plan.
    After the dispossesion in 1782, the building suffered from numerous structural changes, as it was devoted to different uses: tobacco manufacture, military quarters, mint, cooperative store and worker's club.
    In the middle nineties was acquired by the Commune of Milan and restored.
    Finally, in june 2003 was opened as Braidense and Media National Library.
