To Chill - Bar Bianco

The Bar Bianco, a venue immersed in the greenery of the famous Parco Sempione, is now one of Milan's coolest summer locations, from aperitifs to after-dinner drinks. Structured on two floors, with an ice cream cart and blue and white umbrellas to shelter from the sun, the bar offers a lively atmosphere thanks to the music, the inevitable accompaniment for every drink.

To Shop - Hobby Park

If you wake up in a good mood, there's no better place to escape the heat and bargain than a market. One of the best-loved and most particular is Hobby Park, which guarantees an excellent turnover of goods and sellers, often simply eager to get rid of some unused item kept at home: from various types of second-hand items, from vintage to useless knick-knacks.

To Club - Normcore

The independent label located between Bristol, Turin and Milan, arrives at Cascina Torchiera for an event dedicated to clubbing 'in the light of the sun' with sound waves transmitted by no less than two soundsystems, one for each stage: on the outside stage, the Bass Unity, a yellow soundsystem from the Marche region, will distribute the frequencies; inside, instead, the Intento Naoto Soundsystem will patronise the waves.
