I love December.

It’s a magical time of the year full of wrapping gifts in colourful paper, decorating Christmas trees, reuniting with family, last-minute shopping, and lots of festive cooking.
Regardless of what holiday you celebrate, December brings out the best: the long-awaited meetings, fancy gifts, lovely dinners, candle lights, and long heartfelt conversations.

Introducing CIC December Events, I would like to start with the annual Charity Bazaar. Rephrasing a quote about Christmas, “Don’t just buy presents, be present” we invite you to share your time, presence, and dedication to help those who are in need.
We look forward to seeing handmade crafts, international homemade and baked foods, as well as unwanted gifts, which would be appreciated by others.

I am also excited to announce that we will have our annual CIC Christmas lunch at the Moltrasio Hotel Posta.
It is a lovely place in a tiny picturesque town on the query of Lake Como! For us especially, the chef will prepare an oven-roasted Christmas stuffed turkey!

This December, we have a combination of entertaining and informational events.
We will attend the Van Cleef & Arpels Jewellery exhibition at Palazzo Reale in Milan and visit the ‘historical jewellery’. Another art event we offer this month is a Painting Exhibition in Como by talented local painters of the “Carlo Mira”.
We also invite Music connoisseurs for an annual concert performed by the Theatre of Parma.

As we approach December, I wish you all great enjoyment, true happiness and a merry holiday season!

Sincerely yours,

Elena Markova
