5 things to do in Milan this weekend From March 29th to 31st

The last weekend of March coincides with the Easter holidays, and thus, Milan prepares for the exodus of workers and students who return home to spend a few days with their family and lifelong friends. The city will be a bit less chaotic: it will mainly be the locals animating the streets, taking advantage of enjoying an illusory moment of pre-design week relaxation.

Here are 5 things to do in Milan this weekend.

Where to eat - Ai Balestrari

There's a bit of Rome in Milan, especially since Ai Balestrari, one of the oldest Roman restaurants, opened a branch in the Naviglio Pavese area of Milan, bringing with it a rich heritage of history and culinary tradition. The spaces are spacious and furnished in a rustic and welcoming style, offering an ideal setting to enjoy the dishes of Chef Davide Melloni, faithful to traditional recipes. Among the most interesting appetizers are supplì and tastings of porchetta. You can continue with other specialties: mezze maniche with ribs and sausage or with oxtail sauce, the classic tripe, and Roman-style saltimbocca. Prepare to lose yourself in the flavors of Roman cuisine, an excellence not only Italian but worldwide.

What to visit - Aldo Fallai for Giorgio Armani: 1977 / 2021

This period of pause from the buzz of fashion weeks should not make us lose interest in fashion, a sector that can be investigated from other perspectives. Don't miss the opportunity to visit the exhibition of Aldo Fallai, the famous photographer who, together with Giorgio Armani, has been able to create a unique aesthetic over the years. Fallai has enriched fashion creations using his distinctive black and white style evoking neorealistic cinema, Caravaggio's painting, and Mannerism. The exhibition includes 250 photographs that tell decades of work together, portraying historical locations such as the Armani offices, the crowd on Via Durini, and the architecture of the Foro Italico.

Where to relax - Lacerba

The cocktail bar Lacerba has a futuristic name, taken from a famous magazine of the early twentieth century. Obviously, as in all respectable cocktail bars, you can sit comfortably on the armchairs inside and savor the available signature drinks. The menu also satisfies the most demanding palates: gin, vodka, tequila, and many other spirits form a perfect combination with special and pleasant ingredients. If there's one certainty for this Easter weekend, it's that it's impossible not to appreciate Lacerba.
