The Year of the Rat is here, and Milano is ready to celebrate at its best, with the Chinese community living in town, the tourists arriving to the city for vacation, and all the citizens that want to be part of this celebration.
The new year of the Lunar Chinese Calendar will start January 25th under the sign of the Rat, first sign of the Chinese zodiac, representing prosperity, money, good luck and material richness.
Milan will have two weeks of events. The areas involved are many: first of all Sarpi, Milano Chinatown, but also the Fashion District, Corso Como and many exhibition venues, point of references for the artistic scene in Milano.
Also in San Siro, the football stadium, there will be a special game played with special uniforms with names written in Chinese ideograms.
The city is full of enthusiasm, and these are the best events and venues to welcome the Year of the Rat.
