AC Milan are one of the world's most respected clubs. With eighteen Serie A titles and fourteen European trophies to their name, the Rossoneri have carved out a reputation as one of Italy's elite sides - but did you know that they were founded by a humble textile worker from Nottingham?

Learn the fascinating story of Herbert Kilpin, the English immigrant who helped to build the city's first major football club. Herbert was responsible for the iconic red and black kit, the club crest and so much more, laying the foundations for a century of success.

Join book author Robert Nieri for an insightful free talk about the man behind Milan, exploring the life and work of Herbert Kilpin and the lasting legacy he left behind.

You can see The Lord of Milan film, featuring contributions from Mark Hateley, Luther Blissett and Milan duo Giovanni Lodetti and Daniele Massaro, at HOME on Saturday 21 July at 6:30pm. Get your tickets online here.
