5 things to do in Milan this weekend From the 8th to the 10th of December

The first week of December, in Milan, is synonymous with Sant'Ambrogio, the day before the Immaculate Conception holiday. This year, they fall on Thursday and Friday, becoming a pretext for the exodus of many out-of-town residents. Milan, therefore, temporarily empties and recharges energy in anticipation of the hectic Christmas crowd. To help you choose activities for your free time this weekend, nss's weekly guide is here to assist you as always.

What to Visit in Milan - Mass

At the Triennale di Milano, the first installation by Ron Mueck, an Australian hyper-realistic sculptor currently working in London, arrives. For the first time, he can show one of his works to the Italian public. Mass, that's the name of the installation, consists of 100 skulls, designed to evoke the remains piled up in the catacombs of Paris and at the same time denounce human atrocities in Cambodia, Rwanda, and Iraq. Each skull is made of fiberglass and resin and hand-finished by the artist; each one is about one and a half meters high, and the entire installation weighs about 5 tons.
