As has become a custom for some time now, this year Milan is getting ready for the traditional “Befana Motorcycle Benefit” appointment of the Moto Club Ticinese in which motorcyclists and enthusiasts will be present. We already are at the 50th edition of this event taking place every 6th January: the city is getting ready for the Milanese charity event and is ready to welcome the many people who take part with joy and solidarity every time.
Motorcyclists, scooter riders and two-wheelers are welcome, but not only. In fact, no enrollment is needed as the purpose of this event is to give a smile and a few carefree hours to those less fortunate and particularly in need of happiness, especially during the holidays.
During the route that leads to the institutes, it will be possible to stop in three gazebos, where you can make donations, buy a souvenir of the event and also the traditional sweets and a Befana sock . All proceeds will go to the centers which you will visit.
The Smile route: here is the program for January 2018
According to the program for the 2018 edition, the event will take place as follows.
It starts, as usual, at 8.30 from Corso Sempione / Via Melzi D’Eril and then heads towards the Don Orione Institutes of Milan and the Holy Family of Cesano Boscone to bring gifts and a bit of joy to the patients.
The procession, escorted by the police, will move in through via Caterina da Forlì to reach the Piccolo Cottolengo Don Orione, where it will make the first stop.
Later we will continue towards the Holy Family of Cesano Boscone for the second meeting with the guests.
As you can see from the program, it is a busy day. Milan, together with other Italian cities with similar initiatives, is confirmed as one of the best organizers of one of the most anticipated charity meetings of the year.
