MIART

MIART is a fair that combines modern and contemporary art and design, articulating an intense dialogue between the post-war masters and emerging talents. It presents the public with the broadest chronological offering from the art of the beginning of the last century to the works of recent generations through a range carefully selected galleries operating in both primary and secondary markets.

Monza

When people think of Monza, they inevitably think of the Formula 1 Grand Prix racing championship that is held here on an annual basis. However, this delightful city has a lot more to offer its visitors. Located 9 miles (15km) north east of Milan, Monza is the capital of the Province of Monza and Brianza. Top sights include the Romanesque-Gothic Duomo, the Arengario (a historic structure built in the 14th Century and used as the city’s town hall), Villa Reale (a summer palace built in the 18th century by the Royal Habsburg Family of Austria when Lombardy was part of the Austrian Empire), and Parco di Monza (the largest walled park in Europe).

Fondazione Prada

Located in a former gin distillery dating from 1910, the new home of Fondazione Prada is a coexistence of new and regenerated buildings including warehouses, laboratories and brewing silos, as well as new buildings surrounding a large courtyard. The complex aims to expand the repertoire of spatial typologies in which art can be exhibited. The project consists of seven existing buildings, and three new structures: Podium, a space for temporary exhibitions; Cinema, a multimedia auditorium; and Torre, a nine-story permanent exhibition space for displaying the foundation’s collection and activities. The hallmark of the new venue is the so-called “Haunted House”, a 4-story building, clad in 24 carat gold foil, where pieces from the permanent collection of art belonging to the Fondazione Prada are permanently on display. Fondazione Prada is co-chaired by Italian power-couple Miuccia Prada and Patrizio Bertelli. The new Milan venue of the Fondazione was conceived by Rem Koolhaas, a Dutch architect, architectural theorist, urbanist and Professor in Practice of Architecture and Urban Design at the Graduate School of Design at Harvard University.
