Events of the month: May

Nurture yourself with delicious food and lots of great music in and around the city


This month is dedicated to good food, both in Milano’s restaurants and in the outskirts, such as the out-of-town farmhouses where you can enjoy a zero-miles lunch in a countryside setting.


Restaurant Week, from May 2nd to 8th, serves up great food (along with good practices) to entice you on a discovery of the most characteristic city districts


A musical spring in Milano in May that promises some important upcoming events. Music will resonate far and wide with Pianocity, from May 20th to 22nd, three musical days comprising the great Radio Italia Live evening concert on Saturday May 21st in Piazza Duomo, with the return of many beloved artists and much-anticipated performances.

Restaurant Week, discover the city through food

From May 2nd to 8th

From Monday 2nd to Sunday 8th May, Restaurant Week will entice you to discover the heart of the city’s most characteristic neighbourhoods thanks to a food itinerary that matches the variety, creativity and innovation of the city’s gastronomic culture.


Thanks to the YesMilano Restaurant platform you can select a neighbourhood and your preferred type of cuisine then book a tasting menu at a fixed price of 20, 40, 60 or 80+ euros.


Zero-mile products from short-chain production, doggy bags to reduce waste, plus vegetarian and vegan menus incentivise a virtuous circle and contribute to a sustainable system of the relationship between food and the city.

Pianocity brings the music to you, everywhere

From May 20th to 22nd

In ‘the city of the pianoforte’, music waits for no man but goes forth to meet them in the piazzas, in the houses and in alternative spaces to peacefully invade the entire urban space!


From the House Concerts in private spaces and the Concerts in the Courtyards, to the parks, museums and the reopened theatres such as the Lirico Theatre, plus the hospitals, prison residences and the Refettorio Ambrosiano soup kitchen, just to name a few.


Stay tuned to discover all the alternative stages, musicians and concerts, and sign up to re-experience music throughout the entire city.

Eating in a farmhouse in Milano or in the outskirts

Eating in a farmhouse in Milano, or just outside the city, is a real springtime treat, and there are lots places where you can enjoy your meal surrounded by nature and animals. Cascina Cuccagna is a farmstead in the city and, heading north out of Milano, you’ll find Cascina Martesana while, to the south, Cascina Gaggioli or Cascina Sant'Ambrogio. You might also like to venture as far as the Oasi Cà Granda to discover its terrain, from the Ticino Valley to the Adda Valley.


Enjoy tasting authentic zero-mile dishes, purchase locally-sourced products or organise a fun barbecue with friends and family using the BBQ stations available.


Many of the farmsteads are also places for socializing and they offer various activities such as pet therapy with donkeys, yoga sessions and educational farm sessions.
