Being the biggest industrial city in Italy, Milan is a magnetic point for designers, artists, photographers and models. This is the kind of city you want to be in, when you’re looking for some inspiration. It is filled with unique design stores, museums, vintage markets and with an incredible architecture. Make sure you have time to visit everything.
Galleria Carla Sozzani
Located in a former industrial building, this gallery has the typical Milanese architecture. The Galleria Carla Sozzani is one of the most important photography galleries in Italy.
Its exhibitions have been shown at the presence of famous photographers, often presenting works that had never been shown in Italy before: Helmut Newton, Annie Leibovitz, Bruce Weber, Bert Stern, Sarah Moon, Paolo Roversi, David Bailey, Hiro, David LaChapelle, amongst others.
Its exhibitions are often a source of interest and debate in Milan, because they highlight issues of great social importance. One example of that is the Regina José Galindo’s 2014 “Estoy Viva” show addressed the female condition, while the 2013 “Rise and Fall of Apartheid” exhibition gave insight into life before, during and after apartheid.
Museo del Novecento
Established on 6th December 2010, Museo del Novecento has the goal of spreading knowledge of the 20th century art and offering more comprehensive insight into the collections that the city of Milan has.
Besides its core exhibition activity, this museum is also active in the conservation, investigations and promoting of the 20th century Italian cultural and artistic heritage.
If you’re an art and design lover, and planning on getting out of the city center, then you’ll love Hangar Bicocca. Housed in a converted industrial building, outside the city center, it attracts artsy types with its cutting-edge exhibitions and workshops.
Constantly working with the municipal authorities to preserve the memory of the economic and social processes that have shaped the city’s identity. he disused factories, authentic monuments of industrial archaeology, have been converted into studios, workshops and new creative spaces.
