Milan is not a dangerous city, and the Central Railway Station is not a
dangerous spot (it has just undergone a thorough restoration, and there
are shops and restaurants open until late).

On the other hand, Milan is a large city at the center of the largest
metropolitan area in Italy, and like any other large city in the world
it attracts pickpockets. Therefore, avoid showing Rolex watches and big
gold chains in public (you can show them at the conference...), and do
not leave your bag or backpack unzipped while you are in crowded places,
and in the underground.

At night (between midnight and 5AM) avoid walking alone in dark streets
in the suburbs... but this applies to any other large city worldwide.

Please do not be scared. Italians are nice people, although they do not
speak foreign languages (even young people), so asking information in
English might be a challenge (but I shared all the instructions).

Enjoy the conference. We have tried to create the right environment for
a productive meeting, and we still have places available for hackatons
(there will be food and drinks).

Looking forward to meeting all of you starting from tomorrow !!!
