Milano is open and safe

In the respect of social distancing rules we can have fun and be together

Milano is safer: the rules have changed but you can still enjoy exclusive events, theatre shows and outdoor cinema screenings, city life's comforts and travel opportunities offered by Milano airports. We can all take part in the things that happen in the city by respecting social distancing measures and sanitary restrictions.


In general, the use of the mask is mandatory in public enclosed spaces (including public transport), while on the outside is obligatory when it's not possible to mantain safe distance. For more detailed information on the legal restrictions in place, please refer to the Official Website of Regione Lombardia.


Milano Digital Fashion Week ended a few days ago in an almost completely virtual edition. The only exceptions were the Etro show at the Four Seasons Hotel and Dolce&Gabbana catwalk in the courtyard of the Humanitas Hospital in Rozzano (Milano). But there are still many events waiting for you: from concerts and shows at Castello Sforzesco to the summer exhibitions, you'll have a wide choice! Remember to book your seat or your visit online and always show up with your mask on!


If you are interested in sporting events and competitions, Serie A restarted on June 20th and will end in August. You can watch the matches on tv, because stadiums remain closed to the public. 

Theatres and outdoor cinemas

Teatro alla Scala reopened with 4 special concerts on July 6th, 8th, 13th and 15th. But you can live the excitement of live theatre in many other locations in the city: Triennale Summer 2020 for example, offers a rich programme of shows and open-air cinema projections (and you can also visit the Design Museum for free); Porta Romana Mysterious Baths await you with the performances organized by Teatro Franco Parenti; finally, you can't miss AriAnteo outdoor cinema in 3 top locations of Milano - Chiostro dell'Incoronata, Palazzo Reale and Triennale. Always consult the organizers' website to find out more about sanitary restrictions and social distancing measures.
