***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Dear Colleagues, The subject of getting from Milan-Malpensa airport to the center of the city of Milan appears to be a weird one for my inaugural posting on this list, but I recently worked in Milan, gathering data on sixteenth-century networks of merchant-smugglers and can provide a useful suggestion. A comfortable, relatively fast train makes the trip between the airport and Cadorna, at the Stazione Nord, pretty much in the center of Milan. Cadorna is a metro hub for the green and red lines, and from there you can go in all sorts of directions. A major tram stop is located there as well. If you want to go to the Stazione Centrale for some reason (to see Fascist magnificence?), you can make the trip directly on the green line. A trip of a few stops on the red line will take you to the Duomo and Milan's cultural center. The train costs 11 euros. A single metro ticket costs one euro. Enjoy the meeting. Jack -- Dr. J. B.
