CONFERENCE LOCATION

The venue

The conference will be hosted in the premises of a no-profit organisation called Olinda. We will work in a theatre, TeatroLaCucina, in the middle of a beautiful park inside the former psychiatric hospital Paolo Pini, in Milan. It is a space managed by La Fabbrica di Olinda, another NGO that since 1999 has as its objective the social inclusion of people with mental health problems in a context rich in choices and exchanges in combination with urban regeneration project.

How to get there

Arriving by the M3 metro (yellow) or the railway, get off at Affori Ferrovie Nord station. Once you exit the station, take Via Ciccotti on the right until you are in front of Via Ippocrate n.45. Take Via Ippocrate to the right until you reach the main entrance to Olinda which you will find on your left. On the entrance, you will find written in large letters DA VICINO NESSUNO E’ NORMALE (close up nobody is normal). Along the way, you can also follow the arrows that will take you to the theatre!

PLEASE NOTE: when you get off the metro (coming from the center), follow the track to the end in the direction of the metro and then take the last exit on the right – the other exits are misleading!
