The high-tech covering, known as La Cometa, that characterizes MiCo, Milan’s congress centre situated in the Portello area, just a short distance from the old fairgrounds, will be illuminated thanks to a futuristic system of projectors developed by Philips.

The event, scheduled to be attended by local authorities and the executive staff of Fondazione Fiera Milano, owner of the complex, will serve as an inaugural celebration to wish the city happy Christmas. In fact, at 5.30pm, Mico-Milano Congressi, which can be accessed from Piazza Carlo Magno 1 – Gate 17, will open its doors to all those wishing to visit the space. The occasion will be marked with a blessing by a high-ranking Church official and a concert in the Auditorium given by Milan’s Giuseppe Verdi Symphonic Orchestra. Admission is free of charge until all seats have been filled.

Designed in 2002 and subsequently enlarged to its present status, Mico-Milano Congressi is one of the largest congress centres in Europe capable of accommodating up to 18,000 people in its 70 conference rooms, all equipped and complete with a fixed control room. The centre has two plenary rooms boasting a seating capacity of respectively 4,000 and 2,000 places and an Auditorium which can hold up to 1,500 people. Its 54,000 square metres of display areas can be transformed into additional plenary rooms capable of accommodating more than 5,000 people. It also has a car park with more than 1,100 spaces and a heliport. Visitors will also soon be able to access the venue directly from line 5 of the Milanese Underground system.
