The Circolo Arci Bellezza is an historical association, an institution for the city of Milan and its habitans. Born as re-creational club for workers, especially the metallurgic ones that lived in the neighborhood, and their children in the beginning of the XIX century, in 1976 turned into a place dedicated to folk music, dance courses and other cultural activities. The main characteristic of the Circolo Arci Bellezza, as of all the Arci club in Italy, is its hospitality and sociability: still today is possible to see old men playing cards seated next to young people drinking and chatting all together in the same room. It’s a place out of time with a special and whimsical atmosphere.
