5 things to do in Milan this weekend From May 14 to 16

May advances though strangely cooler than usual. While waiting for the heat to arrive (because it will come) you should not waste even a minute of the incoming weekend. Clearly, the problems of still being in the yellow zone are curfew aside, the closure of clubs and the limitations of some restaurants, as well as the not total freedom to gather outdoors. But the limitations are not always impediments: the weekend is still the weekend and Milan is still Milan. So be brave and go out for a ride.

To help you enjoy the next few days at your best, here are five things to do in Milan this weekend.

To Eat – Tartaré

As you can tell from the name, this small restaurant nestled among the streets of the Risorgimento area specializes in raw. Needless to say, the tartare on the menu are the most varied: from truffled beef to classic fassona, passing through prawns, salmon, amberjack. The real surprise lies in everything around us, namely vegan burgers, eggplant tartare, mango and yuzu granita and so on. The space is minimalistic and quiet, in that discreet but chic style that is now a signature in Milan.

Via Galvano Fiamma, 40

To Discover – Robot. The Human Project @ Mudec

An exhibition that traces the history of robotics, automas and human-machine interaction from the beginnings of civilization to the present day to push towards the future. The project has been set up in collaboration with the main research institutes such as the Institute of BioRobotics of the Sant'Anna High School of Pisa and the IIT of Genoa and wants to offer insights and answers on the future of our relationship with technology.

To Chill – Combo

Yes, it's technically a bar, but it has a garden that is just gorgeous. If you like the tranquillity of greenery but still want to find yourself immersed in society, Combo with its dehors looking on the lawns of Parco Baden-Powell (one of the coolest neighbourhood park in South Milan) is the perfect setting to indulge in one of the armchairs and order one drink after another.

Ripa di Porta Ticinese, 83

To Shop – Ambroeus

Small vintage shop tucked away in the Isola area, organized with a "Buy, Sell & Trade" structure, which offers clothes and accessories for both men and women. As the warm season is coming, you'll definitely want to make a good supply of retro shirts.  If you want to check out the store has a website with an online shop but our advice is simply to go and jump.

To Club – Dancing 30

Of course, the clubs are closed, but at Visaterna there is a multimedia exhibition, which includes neon art, collages and sound installations, which reconstructs the history of clubbing culture. Of course, it's not the same as dancing until six in the morning but we've got used to it now.
