Congress Venue: "La Ca’ Granda"

MIPOL2023 will be held at the Aula Magna Auditorium of the University of Milan in the University’s main campus located at via Festa del Perdono 7 in the old La Ca’ Granda ("The Big House"), a striking historical complex in the heart of the city, a short distance from the Duomo.

Built in the 15th century as a hospital by the Tuscan architect known as Filarete, La Ca’ Granda is one of the most historically and artistically significant buildings in Milan, a city that offers countless other points of interest, including numerous works by Leonardo da Vinci, who lived in Milan for 25 years.

The Auditorium can accommodate up to 626 participants, of which 412 are in the stalls, and 214 are in the gallery. All seats are fully accessible.


Self-guided itinerary

Ca’ Granda offers visitors a self-guided itinerary of the complex, with 11 totems positioned along the perimeter of the large central Cortile d’Onore (Court of Honour), in other courtyards, and Largo Richini Portico; text versions are also available in the virtual tour of the complex.

Group visits

Every Saturday, from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM, group visits to the Crociera and the Ca’ Granda courtyards may be booked. Please contact the Organizing Committee to learn more.
