Ex Asilo Ciani

In downtown Lugano on the Viale Cattaneo, there is an event location "il Ciani", exclusively managed by the Convention Centre.

The historical building dates back to the 19th century and is located on a property of about 4’000 square meters enriched by the presence of century old trees. The two-floor structure contains about ten meeting rooms of between 10 and 60 square meters.

On the ground floor in the middle of the building, there is a patio of 280 square meters, ideal for all kind of events. The peculiarity of its pyramid-shaped skylight in glass and metal and the decoration of the round arches make it a unique venue. The patio is surrounded by a series of rooms that can be used for small meetings, exhibitions and conferences. All the meeting rooms enjoy natural sunlight.
