The Venue

Palazzo Mezzanotte - Milan

The venue of CLF19 is Palazzo Mezzanotte in Piazza degli Affari, Milan.

Palazzo Mezzanotte was built in 1932 to centralise all the market trading places which were spread allover Milan. The new Stock Exchange building fits in a complex urban project planned by the Architect Paolo Mezzanotte. It became an architectural symbol of Fascism. The original structure still maintains its impressive façade of 36 meters. The travertine blocks are combined with allegoric figures symbolising wealth and abundance designed by Leone Lodi e Gemignano Cibau. The sides of the building are adorned with a series of bricks and travertine blocks and an inscription plaque of marble stands out. It represents the Roman Ruins which were discovered during the excavation phase. The final result was a triumph of rationalism which also encompasses classical elements.

The Congress Centre and Services of Palazzo Mezzanotte is in Milan City Centre, so you can easily reach it by public transportation.
