Milan seen in a different way

If you are in Milan and you have already visited the main monuments and museums, find something different then. This post wants to help you to do a not-ordinary visit in the city, especially during this month when Milan offers an array of cultural initiatives.

Micamera, for example, is an independent venue having a packed a schedule full of events, including photographic exhibitions, meetings with the authors, art performances, readings and workshops. Join it if yoy are an art-lover: you will like it for sure.

The same can be said about the exhibits held at the Galleria l’Affiche, located in Via Unione. It shows the works of 5-8 young emerging artists, and if you are one of them, just go and ask some information about how to participate next year, maybe.

Photographs and fashion are mixed and melted together in the exhibit called “Fashion. A century of extraordinary fashion photography from the Condé Nast archive”. Hosted by the Fondazione Forma (, it offers some shots related to chronicle the history of fashion photography from its origins up to now.

A very interesting event you can’t miss if you are a photo lover or a photographer.

If you prefer design to pictures and shots, do not worry, you can easily skip tht exhibit and go to the Michel Leo gallery, which was named after its owner.

It offers “Furniture in Parchment” (“Furniture in Pergamena” in Italian), which is, as the name suggests, a furniture line inspired to the deco-modernist period in terms of design, techniques and materials.

These are just some of the exhibition you can find in Milan which are something different from the very well known ones. That’s why it would be a pity if you miss them, wouldn’t it?

The most important thing, as I always say, is that you have to enjoy your time in Italy!
