The Asilo Ciani consists of 7 side rooms (one of which can be modulated) between 30 and 60 square meters, and a 280-square-meter central hall (Patio), accessible on the ground floor. The central hall rises around a neoclassical colonnaded patio, surmounted by an imposing glass and metal pyramidal skylight, which allows atmospheric natural lighting. The building was completely renovated in 2022 and now offers air-conditioned, well-lit and technically equipped spaces. The Asilo Ciani is located on the central Viale Cattaneo, to which it is connected via a gravel path surrounded by flower and tree beds. The back offers a large private outdoor space shaded by prominent century-old plane trees, which can be used for refreshments and coffee breaks. The building is located in close proximity to the Palazzo dei Congressi, Villa Ciani, Ciani Park, and the parking garage in Piazza Castello.
The Asilo Ciani can be rented by individual rooms or in its entirety, and by the day. It has a small support room for catering with separate access. Lugano Convention & Exhibition gladly offers a list of useful addresses for services, including catering, technical, furniture and decorations.
