This chapter sums up the main issues discussed in the edited book "Planning and Managing Smaller Events" in order to reflect on the implications of smaller events: on the one hand, in relation to the growing festivalization of contemporary urban change processes; on the other hand, with regards to the planning of future mega-events such as Olympics, Expos, or FIFA World Cup. Specifically, this chapter analyses the Milan case study in order to recognize what is possible to transfer from smaller events to mega-events in order to deal with the unsustainability of larger projects.
