CONQUER MILAN

DA VINCI CODE

 

A challenge through the streets of downtown Milan, in which you will have to pass a series of tests related to the city, but most importantly solve many challenges and puzzles related to Leonardo Da Vinci!

Which will be the winning Team?
 

Your goal will be to reach as many stages as possible to accumulate the most points, before the mission ends.

You will find several locations on the map:


The stages marked with a red sticker are the most important: these stages will score up to a maximum of 10 points.
At each
red stage, you will find a trainer who will explain the task at hand.

The stages marked with the yellow sticker will have a maximum score of 5 points.
IMPORTANT: When you arrive on a yellow stage, you will not find a trainer waiting for you.
In this case you will have to take a Team photo-selfie, and send it in the WhatsApp chat you will find in the tablet, also indicating the stage letter.
You will receive in real time, again via WhatsApp, the password
to access the test to be passed in the yellow stage where you arrived.

The first stage to be reached will be assigned to you at the start by the Jury.
From the second stage on, you will choose where to go, depending on your location and strategy.

The important thing, however, will be to meet by 11:50 a.m. at El Brellin Restaurant, which you will find on the map as the green arrival point.


To get to the restaurant, you will have to take public transportation.
You can get there either by using Tram No. 2 and No. 14, or we recommend that you take the green line of the Metro/Subway
starting from the Lanza Station, and then get off at the Porta Genova Station.


Right at the Lanza Subway Station, there is also the red stage marked with the letter M.

PIAZZA MERCANTI

Piazza Mercanti is a picturesque square in Milan located very near the Duomo. During the Middle Ages, the plaza was the commercial and governmental centre of the city. It doesn’t currently have the same role, but it is still a charming Medieval area housing a number of unusual buildings.

STAGE F

CASTELLO SFORZESCO

Exceptional evidence of Leonardo da Vinci's (1452-1519) presence at the Sforza court, the Sala delle Asse is the most illustrious room in the Castello Sforzesco. The room received under Ludovico il Moro the famous Leonardo decoration in 1498. If some missives between the Moor and the great artist allowed the existence of Leonardo's decoration to be known, the dark centuries experienced by the castle under foreign rule seemed to have hidden the painted cycle forever.

STAGE H

VIA FIORI CHIARI

In the Brera district, we find two opposing "flowery" streets.
According to one theory, Via dei Fiori Chiari (clear flowers) and Via dei Fiori Oscuri (dark flowers) are the perfect metaphor for their past: in fact, at one time what is now called Via del Fiori Chiari was the site of a women's college, while Via dei Fiori Oscuri was famous for housing a brothel. In short, two streets that certainly were not frequented in the same way.

ARCO DI PORTA TICINESE

The meeting point for exploring the Navigli
Porta Ticinese, or Porta Cicca as the Milanese call it, is one of the 6 gates in the medieval walls of Milan. Together with the arches of Porta Nova on Via Manzoni, it is the only vestige of the 11th-century Milanese walls swept away by Barbarossa's army in 1162.
Porta Ticinese and the nearby Navigli are now the symbol par excellence of "Milano da bere": aperitifs, sociability and music.

Built as part of the redevelopment of the Darsena, the nimble bridge that connects its banks between Gorizia and Gabriele D'Annunzio avenues as of Nov. 6, 2019 is named after Alexander Langer, a luminous figure of politician and environmentalist, as well as co-founder and leader of the Italian and European Greens, whom the dedication plaque very appropriately defines as a "builder of bridges between communities" by virtue of his work in favor of civil rights and peaceful coexistence of peoples.
