Fondazione Prada in Milano : Autumn 2017

It was terribly hot this summer, but autumn is finally here, with many wonderful exhibitions to see.

Milano has several spaces that are not located in the centre of town, which exhibit contemporary art and culture.
In 2015, Fondazione Prada opened a space in the southern part of Milano, that was once an industrial area.

Fondazione Prada’s surface area is 19,000 m2, with 11,000 m2 of exhibition space. The original four buildings were used by a distillery dating back to 1910′s. There are 3 new buildings on the property, one beautiful building is covered in 24 carat gold foil.

There is a bar which depicts a typical Milanese bar from the past, as well as a space for children.

When I visited, there was a very interesting exhibition about Italian television from the 70′s.
