International Music Festival

Milano & Torino
Sept. 3 - 22, 2011

The MITO September Music Festival means a whole new way to enjoy the sounds and sights of the city. Three weeks of spectacular music in a slew of extraordinary venues, for a fascinating and unparalleled discovery journey through two major Italian cities brimming with hidden treasures and treats of all kinds.

Milano, ranked number-five on the New York Times "41 Places to Go in 2011", is an art city where former factory locations and airplane hangars are transformed into art galleries, where every corner plays host to monuments and testimony going back to the Roman age, and continuing on through Lombard, Renaissance and Risorgimento periods, including a myriad of basilicas and churches laden with history and art. Follow the traces left by the great musicians who have flocked to Milano, as you immerse yourself in the city’s grand musical heritage, historical theaters and numerous museums.

Torino, awarded three stars by the Michelin Guide, has become a popular destination for travelers as they experience a wonder world still reminiscent of the days when the city was the burgeoning Italian nation’s first capital, with its majestic streets, elegant 19th-century cafés and sumptuous royal abodes, all harmoniously and imaginatively melded with the latest urban trends in entertainment and fine dining. See for yourself why Torino was chosen to host the 2006 Winter Olympics, explore the nearby Reggia di Venaria Reale, let yourself be swept away by the many contemporary art venues and the prestigious Egyptian and Cinema museums. Delight in the city’s famed chocolate. Torino – undisputed home of the art of living.
