Left Luggage

Hello!
I am a new poster so bear with me.
I am going to the Torino Olympics. I have a hotel in Milano, but events that I am seeing are in the mountains. Since I booked my hotel and flight back to America a long time ago, I was able to find accommodations in the village of my Olympic event. Unfortunately, I will have to train back immediately after the end of the event to Milan, and from there go to the airport as I have a super-early flight the next day from Malpensa. I can't take my luggage with me, as I have to check out of my accommodations in the village prior to my Olympic event, and I cannot take luggage into the venue with me during the event. I can't leave it at my mountain accommodations as I have to catch the FIRST TRAIN out of the mountains to Torino in order to get the last train out of Torino to Milano. Ideally, I would drop my luggage off at a left luggage location in Milano, go to the Olympics, and recover my luggage on the way to the airport in order to avoid paying for a hotel room in Milano that I will not use. Unfortunately, the left luggage counter at Malpensa opens at too late an hour to retrieve my luggage before checking into my flight. I know there are left luggage facilites at the Milano train station. Does anyone know the hours of this facility? I have searched high and low without success.
Thanks!

This Web site tells you where the left luggage is and what the charges are, but not the times that it is open. But you can e-mail a question:

Thank you so very much for the www site, Eloise. With a little bit of surfing, I was able to find the grandistazioni site for Torino Puorto Nuovo and for Milano, which diagrams the left luggage locations, hours and costs. I couldn't have done it without out! Thanks!!!

Please make sure that you can catch train from Torino to Milan. I believe the last train for Milan leaves Torino just before midnight.

Thanks a million! I have checked with Trenitalia, and you are indeed correct -- the last train leaves before midnight. I will keep my luggage at the Torino Porto Nuovo station, as I will definitely be there in time to collect it before the left luggage counter closes at midnight. This is assuming, of course, that the left luggage counter remains open during the Olympics....
Life is SO COMPLICATED!!!!!
