Location and other information
THE CONFERENCE VENUE
The conference will be hosted in the premises of a no-profit organisation called Olinda. We will work in a theatre, called TeatroLaCucina, surrounded by 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.

WHERE TO SLEEP
Milano is full of hotels and rooms to let. You need to find an accomodation on your own. Considering that the conference venue is not in the city center, and that it is very well connected with the city center via metro line 3 or passante ferroviario, we suggest you to stay in the city center. Any place along the metro line 3 or passante ferroviario could work, for example around central railway station or also garibaldi station. If you need to find a place to sleep on a budget, or you prefer to sleep close to the conference venue, we suggest the Olinda hostel, run by the same cooperative that runs the theater where we work.
