The fourteenth congress of the AIC in 2021 will be held at the historical Ca’ Granda building. It is a Renaissance building, commissioned by the Duke of Milano Francesco Sforza as a public hospital, designed by the Florentine architect known as “il Filarete”. The construction began in 1456 continuing and expanding in the following years. During the Second World War it was partially destroyed by bombing and the damages were repaired using as much as possible the original materials. Its reconstruction is considered a masterpiece of conservative restoration. Since 1958 it has been the headquarters of the Università degli Studi di Milano.
