As the international capital of modern Art, Milan sets historical and new trends. Celebrities, such as Vanessa Beecroft, studied art and took their first steps here.
Discover locations and its key players starting from the most Bohemien district in town.
You’ll visit the Fine Arts Academy and its classrooms, smell the fragrance of oil colors in the ancient stationary shop Crespi, have a glass of red wine in Bar Jamaica where once poor artists bartered paintings for a plate of pasta, and have a glance at the courtyard where Piero Manzoni lived; famous for his Anchrome kept at the Moma. Then you’ll pop in Museo Novecento to make a personal idea made about Brera avant-garde as Spatialism and Nuclear and you’ll be ready to meet artists who graduated from the Academy. Angela Florio is ready to darken her studio and light up gorgeous areas woven with special led strings. Cecè Casile will show his hand carved frames, that perfectly melt with Gabriele Basilico’s urban photos.For information, reservations or special requests on routes dedicated to the city of Milan by Viaggi di Architettura.
