MINIACS & RIDE, a perfect match

At the end of the day, MINIACS was the excellent event, in which we gladly participated, even thanks to the perfect choice of location, the RIDE Milano, adjacent to the Navigli area. A great added value to the event was in fact given by the wide variety of food that the kiosks present offered and by the space available, which guaranteed the right balance between leisure and relaxation, with sofas, benches and hammocks.
