The guided visit will start at 2:30 PM from the Biblioteca Ambrosiana (Piazza Pio XI, 2 Milano). Admission ticket included. Transfer between the museum and the historical workshop by a short walk in the ancient 5Vie neighborhood.
Timeless Beauty is part of Milano Grand Tour, a set of itineraries dedicated to the excellence of Arts and Crafts in Milan, organized in collaboration with Cologni Foundation for the Métiers d'Art.
