The Blue Note is the famous jazz club and restaurant within Isola district, and it has been entertaining Milan citizens with its refined music shows since 2003.

“Potere ai Piccoli” at Pirellone

Let’s now talk about an event that both children and adults are going to enjoy! Till September 20 Palazzo Pirelli (otherwise known as the “Pirellone”) will host an exclusive exhibition, “Potere ai Piccoli”: more than 30 works of art entirely made with the worldwide known coloured bricks, the Lego.

The exhibition, made by Riccardo Zangelmi, the only Italian artist who was awarded with the Lego Certified Professional certificate, is a creative path between objects, memories and fantasies and it makes us remember an absolute truth: we are still children after all.


We have already talked about Cinema Bianchini, the open air cinema on Highline Galleria’s roofs. This month we want to suggest you “Arianteo”, the summer open air cinema festival at Palazzo Reale, CityLife, Umanitaria and at Chiostro dell’Incoronata.

Till September 12 you can choose one of these great locations and watch one of the several movies in schedule, under the starred sky of Milan!
