A Weekend of Wellbeing by Starbene in Milan

Two days of free medical check ups, showcooking, talks, beauty and fitness in collaboration with the Gruppo Ospedaliero San Donato

Starbene, the Mondadori Brand that is a point of reference in the world of health and wellbeing, is organising for the first time a free two-day event entirely dedicated to prevention, healthy eating, beauty and fitness in order to celebrate with its audience forty years of authoritativeness and competence.

A Weekend of Wellbeing, on 21 and 22 October at the Microsoft House in Viale Pasubio in Milan, with a full programme of events run in conjunction with outstanding collaborators: not just the usual team of experts that Starbene depends on, but also doctors from the Gruppo Ospedaliero San Donato – the patron of the event -, Virgin Active personal trainers, chefs from the Sale&Pepe cooking school and beauty experts from important companies in the cosmetics sector.

“The mission of Starbene is to consider health as a question of lifestyle. A way of ensuring that a balanced diet, appropriate physical exercise and an awareness of one’s body becomes a question of habit. What could be better than a weekend of wellbeing to promote this philosophy? During the two days at Microsoft House we will offer participants the wellness kit that everyone needs,” said the editor ofStarbene, Annalisa Monfreda.

The programme is organised in four macro areas, with events taking place from 10 am to 7 pm.

  • free medical check ups: on the Starbene website, you can book your free appointment with a doctor from the Gruppo Ospedaliero San Donato – Italy’s leading hospital group with 18 hospitals, in Lombardy and Emilia Romagna – including specialists in gastroenterology, nutrition, gynaecology, cardiology, as well as senology, urology, dermatology, ophthalmology, ENT, pulmonology, dentistry and aesthetic surgery;
  • showcooking: nutritionists from both Starbene and the Gruppo Ospedaliero San Donato, together with chefs from the Sale&Pepe cooking school  will focus their attention of the right diet, health food and food intolerances;
  • talk shows: conferences conducted by experts from the Starbene team and dedicated to the importance of prevention and healthy lifestyles, with the presence of  guests such as the two Italian volleyball champions Alessia Orro and Alessia Gennari, both players of the Unet E-Work Busto Arsizio (planned for Sunday 22, at 11.30 am);
  • fitness: demonstrations and free lessons of cross cardio, booty barre and strength Vinyasa yoga, in collaboration with Virgin Active.
