5 things to do in Milan on Halloween weekend From 29 October to 1 November

The Halloween weekend is just around the corner: the memories of when we went to do trick-or-treating for the floors of the condominium re-emerge as we step on the fallen leaves along the avenues of the parks of Milan, while we observe the pumpkins and grinning skulls in the windows in the shops and think about what costume to wear on Sunday evening with the same childish enthusiasm of the children who choose the outfit of the first day of school. As with almost every other imaginable anniversary, even for Halloween our city comes alive with a thousand events and opportunities not to be missed - and that's why nss magazine has drawn up a list of 5 things to do in Milan for the Halloween weekend.

To Eat - Killer Milano

Killer Milano, never name was more perfect for a restaurant where to eat on Halloween. Chef Andrea Marconetti, who also has a television experience like that of Masterchef, has opened his restaurant in Viale Umbria 120, an address that makes most Milanese think only of Plastic, the iconic queer restaurant that has animated the evenings of entire generations.

To Chill - Cimitero Monumentale 

The Monumental Cemetery, the work of Carlo Maciachini inaugurated in 1866 is, as well as a very suggestive location, an open-air museum where you can retrace the events of the city and much of its artistic history, from the realism and eclecticism of the late nineteenth century, to the liberty and symbolism of the early twentieth century, from the thirties to the contemporary era. Along with the chapels of the great families of Milanese culture and entrepreneurship, there are many famous people who have linked their name to the history of Italy, including Alessandro Manzoni, Salvatore Quasimodo, Giorgio Gaber, Alda Merini, Dario Fo and Franca Rame.

To Party - Halloween Night @ Amnesia Milano

If you haven't been able to get tickets online for the Amnesia Halloween party, fear not: they will be available at the entrance of the club next Sunday. Remember your green pass and, of course, your mask. For the rest, just think about having fun that So much Monday is vacation.

To Shop - Torriani 

Historic shop in the heart of Milan, since 1943 one of the oldest shops, think that the old owner, Mr. Carlo Torriani, had been hired as an apprentice in 1926, after attending elementary school. Born as a bazaar dedicated to carnival products and toys, it has become over time the best place to buy an original costume throughout Milan.

To Discover - San Bernardino alle Ossa

The Milanese equivalent of the Paris Catacombs is the church of San Bernardino alle Ossa, located in Piazza Santo Stefano and renowned for its ossuary. According to some, the bones correspond to the numerous Christian martyrs killed by Arian heretics at the time of Sant'Ambrogio, but in reality they appear to belong to dead patients of the Brolo hospital and to the priors and confreres who directed it, together with condemned to beheading, dead prisoners and members of aristocratic families who were buried in nearby tombs.
