About the Event
Burns Night is an integral part of Scottish culture, both for those living in Scotland and expats and it mainly involves a traditional dinner to pay tribute to poet Robert Burns, the author of many Scots poems. 25 January is indeed the date of the poet’s birth. The dinner usually involves creations from the local cuisine such as Haggis, soups and accompanied by whisky, as well as piping or Scottish music.
Burns Night in Milan
Burns suppers are organised in Milan thanks to Casa Scozia Milan Scottish Community, which organises traditional Scottish events out of Scotland with the support of the British Chamber of Commerce for Italy. The home of Scottish Culture in Italy, Casa Scozia is an association supporting Scottish initiatives or events involving Italy; from Scottish country dance lessons, Tartan night, Whiskey day to St. Andrew’s Dinner Dance.
