5 things to do in Milan this weekend From 15 to 17 October

Autumn returns, yet it feels like spring. With discos and clubs finally reopened, Milan has poured into the streets, calls have returned at two in the morning, dinners, taxi rides, invitations and RSVPs passed from one phone to another. And it was also time. Milan is not only fashion, design and offices but also and above all nightlife, visits to museums on weekends, restaurants discovered by chance or recommended by friend. If the cheerful chaos of the awakened city disorients you, don't worry – we've rounded up the best things to do here in the city so you don't miss a moment of fun in the coming days.

Here are the 5 things to do in Milan this weekend.

To Eat – Miro Osteria del Cinema

When the Cinema Anteo was still the Cinema D'Annunzio, this place was obtained from the ex-backstage as far back as 1938. Today the restaurant has reopened as a contemporary Italian tavern, without losing that boho-chic touch that is required of every restaurant worthy of the name. Between lasagna, tartare, pork pins with apricots and endive, Miro's menu will not disappoint you and while you are there, you can also watch a good movie.

Via Milazzo, 9 – al piano terra di Anteo Palazzo del Cinema

To Chill - La Sala Bistrot

Yes, theoretically speaking it is a bistro but the key to chill is to find a place where you can have a drink in the heat, have a hearty aperitif and above all have a great choice of wines. And La Sala Bistrot is all this: the most precise will define it, at the French, a bar à vin, but the formula of the restaurant is much quieter and more open - and above all it will allow you to turn an aperitif into a dinner without having to get up from your chair.

Via Giuseppe Prina 2/A

To Club – Disco Stupenda

The summer will be over but the Italo-Disco wave is still strong. Saturday on the roof of Clér Rooftop Bar DJ Rou, Tommiboy and Beppe Loda will make you dance all night to the rhythm of Pino D'Angiò, Righeira and Alan Sorrenti. The event is free, although the entrances will be closed once the maximum capacity is reached – to book with RSVP click at this link.

To Discover – Mario Testino. Unfiltered

An exhibition dedicated to the great fashion photographer that will exhibit to the public more than 50 works, which include both intimate portraits and iconic images of fashion, selected by gallery owners together with the photographer. Alongside the large-format shots, there will also be exclusive and unpublished works, such as snapshots available in new formats and editions. Other protagonists of the exhibition will also be the photographs that appeared in the recent book Ciao, published by Taschen last year and dedicated to the photographer's love for Italy.
