The congress evening and dance party will take place at Villa Necchi Campiglio. A villa surrounded by a peaceful garden in the heart of the Lombard capital, housing sensational works of art, where you can still immerse yourself in the glamorous world of Milan’s interwar years.
Secluded in the heart of an elegant, peaceful part of central Milan, Villa Necchi Campiglio was designed in the early 1930s by the architect Piero Portaluppi at the behest of sisters Nedda and Gigina Necchi and Gigina’s husband Angelo Campiglio, who embodied the cultured Lombard upper-middle class and were very much in synch with their time.

The evening will start at 19.30 hrs. The aperitif will be served in the beautiful gardens of Villa Necchi and afterwards at 20.30 hrs there will be a seated dinner served in the glass house. The dance party will start at 22.30 hrs and the evening will last till 01.30 hrs. During the dance party you can also stay in the glass house and enjoy the atmosphere and talk in a quiet environment with your friends and colleagues!

The congress evening and dance party was only made possible by the generous support of Hill’s Pet Nutrition, platinum sponsor of the ECVIM-CA Congress.
