Cinema Speed Date at MIC

You know there's nothing more romantic than a romantic movie. Not to mention its soundtrack, which provides a musical backdrop to emotionally charged moments. For cinephiles with or without a fiancè, the best Valentine's Day appointment is at the MIC (Interactive Cinema Museum), where those who exchange a kiss at the cash desk will get in for free. The three days of Mic's Valentine's w.e. will begin, by playing it safe, by screening the colossal father of all the romantic movies aka Titanic. On Saturday February 15th, instead, an initiative explicitly aimed at singles in search of a soul mate: the Cinema Speed Date: take 5 minutes in the theater to declare cinematic preferences to various strangers and find those who share them. What will be, will be... 
 

Shakespeare and The Beatles at Theatre

What could be better than a play written by Sir. William Shakespeare to enjoiy the February 14th? The appointment is at Il cielo sotto Milano with an interesting remake of the Shakespearean love theorem A midnight's Summer Dream. Its protagonists, the four lost lovers chasing each other in a forest populated by mystical and enigmatic sounds and figures, will fall in love and lose their minds to the notes of the English rock masterpieces of the Sixties and Seventies: from The Beatles to Pink Floyd. Poetry 2.0 is guaranteed.

 

Makeout Party at Magnolia

One of the unmissable events for hardened singles is the now traditional Lemon Party at the legendary Circolo Magnolia. The game is always the same: catch a name of a famous couple of your "genre", stick it to your chest and look for the name that completes you. Ah, if you kiss, you win a drink! And with two, perhaps, you have won your "harsh” half.

A tour of the artistic wonders of Milano by Italian Touring Club

During Valentine's w.e. Milano Touring Club Italiano proposes several initiatives within the project “Aperti per Voi" ("Open for you”). In program extraordinary openings, theatrical visits, musical appointments in places specifically selected to celebrate love. 

 

Casa Museo Boschi Di Stefano, home of the spouses Antonio Boschi and Marieda Di Stefano, contains masterpieces of ‘900 artists (like Manzoni, Fontana and De Chirico) that will cheer the guests of the "musical aperitivi" organized on Friday 14 and Saturday 15 February.

 

On 15 February Casa Verdi, a neo-Gothic building wanted by Giuseppe Verdi to host retired musicians, will become the scene of two special visits organized by the Dramatrà Company, dedicated to the most dear characters of the great composer.

 

Three churches in Milano are the protagonists of the initiative: the Renaissance Basilica of Santa Maria presso San Satiro,with the false presbytery made by Bramante, which can be visited under the guidance of TCI volunteers on Valentine’s Day; the Church of San Fedele, guarded by the Statue of Manzoni in the square of the same name, accessible from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday; San Maurizio al Monastero Maggiore open to the public free of charge during the whole w.e.: it is called the "Sistine Chapel" of Milano because is decorated inside with 4,000 square meters of frescoes made by the most famous Lombard painters of 1500.

Terme di Porta Romana

Finally…dedicated to those wo, once in their life, want to enjoy a moment of total relaxation in the company of their better half (or alone) we recommend a romantic dip in Porta Romana Terme, in an historical frame that intersects different eras: the Spanish Walls of the XVI century surround the structure; the Art Nouveau style of beginning ‘900 hosts the multisensory paths that are arranged on more than 3,000 square meters; Roman archaeological remains are clearly visible in the most beautiful hot tub of Italy, known as “underwater museum”; while the tram of well-being - the world’s first biosauna made inside a tram - leads back to contemporary everyday life, but without stress. Glamourous aperitivo in a bathrobe, kisses under the winter sky, or a day dedicated to your wellbeing…Valentine’s Day is worth returning to your passions.
