In Lugano city centre, "il Ciani" is an historical building dating back to the 19th century. It is included in a property of 4000 square metres surrounded by century old trees. The structure, originally a nursery for needy children and orphans is nowadays absolutely ideal for exclusive events, thanks to a glass pyramid and a metal skylight, typical decorative archways of the time, as well as the extraordinary parquet floor.

Alternatively, relax, good drinks and ethnic cuisine can also be found at ETNIC, just behind the New Orleans Club (inside the Quartiere Maghetti) [both at delegate ‘s expense]
