5 things to do in Milan this weekend From May 17th to 19th

Also May has arrived in its full swing, spring now prepares to hand over the baton to summer but the weather doesn't seem to want to turn summery. While waiting for the scorching heat to suddenly hit us, it's still time for touristy weekends, filled with walks, Sundays at the museum, lunches discovering new venues, especially outdoors if it doesn't rain.

The nss guide, as always, is here to help you: here are 5 things to do in Milan this weekend.

Where to Eat - Afterlove

AfterLove, recently opened, stems from an idea by entrepreneur Tommaso Regondi who chose to «start something based on my passions: food and aesthetics.» AfterLove is a venue of undeniable aesthetic impact: the place embodies the concept of urban jungle by combining real plants (complete with a dedicated gardener), neon lights, and bricks: seemingly anachronistic, it's actually a stylistic mix between Miami Vice and the 1990s. From the initial idea of a kitchen that was just a side to a 360-degree experience, Regondi of AfterLove changed his mind: «We don't sell smoothies to drink, so why not offer food that's just as 'comforting'? The main challenge was to find something that wouldn't tie us to a regional or national image; so, we drew from all over the world. We mainly focus on street food.» So, if this weekend you were thinking of sitting at a sharing table to taste dishes from around the world, AfterLove is the place for you.

It's difficult to distinguish garments and collections in their ability to be always contemporary and timeless: the distinctive sign of the designer's work is, in fact, the radical ability to dismantle and reassemble archetypes, giving his personal vision of the present, past, and future.
