The event is jointly organized by four departments in the campus “Leonardo da Vinci” of the Politecnico di Milano close to downtown. Milan is the second largest city in Italy with one and a half million people. Once the capital of Italian heavy industry, Milan now has a very diversified economy based on high-tech, fashion, informatics, bio-sciences, high education, logistics and finance. Milan is a place where residents and visitors are coming from all the corners of Europe and from every continent, for business, culture and trade. The skyline of the city has changed tremendously in the last twenty years, with the construction of two architecturally outstanding districts (City life and Porta Nuova) full of tall buildings, theaters, exclusive shops and space to walk and relax. These novelties integrate very well with such renowned places as the Gothic Cathedral (Duomo), the Teatro alla Scala and the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, the first covered mall in the world built at the end of the 19th century!
