7 Dec-14 Jan. A Lego city in the centre of Milan.
A 60m-long diorama of a bustling city made of seven million Lego bricks will delight youngsters (and their parents) in Milan over the festive season.
Open until 14 January, daily from 10.00 to 20.00, kids of all ages can admire the city complete with train lines, bridges, gardens, a dock and over 6,000 figures of comic-strip superheroes to film stars, celebrities and personalities from The Simpsons and The Little Mermaid.
Among the details of the plastic mini-metropolis there are blocks of flats, a shopping mall, construction sites, snack bars and cinemas, flower shops and a barber, as well as streets, traffic and pedestrians and a Luna Park.
The diorama will have moving parts and working illumination, so that visitors can watch the inhabitants going about their lives inside the lit-up and furnished apartments.
The show, called City Booming Milan, has been prepared and mounted by staff of a Treviso company which manufactures and supplies bricks to Lego.
Full entry price €9; under 4 years free, 4-12 years €3, under-18s, students and over-65s €6; family ticket for 2 adults and 2 children €20. Exhibition in the Palazzo Giureconsulti in Piazza dei Mercanti, just a few steps from the Cathedral Square.
