PIME Gala Dinner
The PIME Gala Dinner will take place on Tuesday,
13 of February 2007, at the Palazzo Clerici.
Once owned by a member of
the Visconti Family, in 1635 Palazzo Clerici was bought
by Giorgio Clerici. This noble family, which was first
initially active in the textile business, played a significant
role in the Milanese government during its period of
greatest splendour. A tangible symbol of their prestige,
the Palazzo Clerici became one of the most luxurious
residences in Milan.
Giorgio Antonio Clerici, the most illustrious
member of the family, undertook a number of
transformations of the palace. In 1740, he assigned
the Venetian artist Giovambattista Tiepolo the
task to paint the ceiling of the representative
gallery of the palace, the Galleria. The resulting
fresco is a good example of the mature work
of this famous artist.
During the aperitif PIME delegates will have
the opportunity to admire the frescos with the
help of a guide.
The Palazzo Clerici is located in the center
of Milan, not far from La Scala Theatre.
Accompanying people are welcome to attend
the Gala Dinner at an additional cost.
The Gala Dinner is included in the
