Go Milano go! :eek:kay: (Warum eigentlich nicht "Magneto"?)

MAILAND | Magnete | 110m

By the renewal of the Portello Pavilion 1-2, Fondazione Fiera Milano is completing the transformation of the former Milanese fair exhibition.

This redevelopment was made possible thanks to the revision of the Programme Agreement Fiera, promoted by the City of Milan and by the Lombardy Regional Authority, which allows for the introduction of functions compatible with the main trade fair and conference function, while opening up to the city, which in the adjacent area sees significant urban development of previously impenetrable or derelict zones north and south of Portello.

Piazza Gino Valle and 'Casa Milan' (new AC Milan football club museum + restaurant + official store + offices)


Portello public park, residences, stores...


Magnete, a new center for innovation and technological activities
Magnete is developed by Prelios Group and HubLab. Prelios is an Italian real real estate company with 26 funds under its management and € 3.7 billion assets under management as at June 2014. HubLab look for innovation, apply research, implement a vision beyond the boundaries of disciplines. The real content of ideas, knowledge and specific competences is given by the possibility of being applied and transferred in appropriate form and technologies.
Magnete will create new momentum for the city of Milan
An attraction for city residents and international travelers as well. The intention was to create space for activity and interaction, allowing both adults and children a sense of freedom and opportunity for exploration and discovery.

Four new museums opened in recent months/weeks in Milan

City of Cultures




Museo delle Culture (Museum of Cultures), or MUDEC, is the latest addition to the museum landscape of Milan. Opened on March 26, 2015, it is a centre dedicated to interdisciplinary research on the cultures of the world, and focuses on the relationship of these cultures with the city of Milan.


The project for the Museum of Cultures originated in the 1990s when the Municipality of Milan acquired the former industrial area of Ansaldo to give it over to the cultural activities. The disused factories, which are true monuments of industrial archaeology, have been transformed into workshops, studies and new creative spaces.

The intercultural vocation that runs through it today finds its expression in a design that is capable of meeting the call, which over the years has become more and more widespread, from a cultural public in a landscape that is in continuous transformation for museum institutions, their sustainability and their identity between scientific research, historical witness, interpretation of the present day and a vision of the future.






A visitor to the Museum of Cultures can visit great international shows proposed via diverse artistic languages, get to know the ethno-anthropological heritage of the collections of the Municipality of Milan which are made up of more than 7000 works of art, objects of use, textiles and musical instruments from every continent, take part in a schedule of events and initiatives curated by the international communities present locally.






The museum is designed by the British architect Sir David Chipperfield. His firm David Chipperfield Architects is responsible for the design of many other cutting-edge museums like the Neues Museum in Berlin, the Saint Louis Art Museum in Missouri and the Liangzhu Culture Museum in Hangzhou, China.

The very architecture of the building mirrors the many spirits that dwell in the MUDEC. The building features blocks of squared off forms clad in zinc and a crystal structure – lit around the clock – that bursts geometrically upon the area hosting it and appears very different from the adjacent rooms. The MUDEC sets itself apart by its central hall in a free and organic shape which generates an internal courtyard with a characteristic “flower” shape, a covered piazza, a meeting place between cultures and communities.

Within the building various spaces are laid out that offer the visitor and the city a multiplicity of cultural proposals and services. The ground floor is devoted to welcoming; it has a bistrot, a design store, ticket office, wardrobe, restoration workshop and storerooms set up for visits by small accompanied groups. The exhibition area of the Museum, located on the first floor, is set around a large covered central piazza and hosts the section of the museum itinerary holding the works from the permanent collection and halls given over to the large temporary shows. The space is rounded out by the auditorium, a theatre that sits three hundred, devoted to performance and visual arts.

On the second floor on the other hand there is the MUDEC Club restaurant, which offers unseen glimpses over the building and the surrounding area and aims to be a container for events linked to the art-world: artistic performances, presentations, and workshops will be held in series over a yearly calendar and will stimulate the artistic spirit of this space.

Finally, MUDEC Junior is the space specifically dedicated to children, where it is proposed bringing the younger ones closer to the diverse cultures of the world through activities of play, multimedia stations and manual workshops.

Fondazione Prada

Newest and largest contemporary art museum, once was home of a distillery in the industrial heart of Milan: the ambitious project is the vision of the Fondazione Prada, the art foundation set up by fashion designer Miuccia Prada and her husband Patrizio Bertelli in 1993.

While the foundation has championed numerous arts projects over the past two decades, including Carsten Höller’s Double Club installation, a pop-up club and restaurant in Islington, north London, the expansive museum will be its first permanent home accessible to the public. Other notable projects backed by the foundation, include works by Anish Kapoor, director and artist Sam Taylor-Wood, and Turner prize winner Steve McQueen.

The foundation’s expansive arts and exhibition space is to be designed by Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas, blending the building’s original industrial character with several extensions, including an eight-storey tower described as a monolithic sculptural mass which they hope will become “a new landmark in Milan’s urban landscape”.

The 10 buildings that will be gallery spaces for contemporary art collection, as well as a rolling series of specially commissioned exhibitions, include a cinema, a library and other facilities. At the heart of the compound will sit the Haunted House, an intimate space which will house site-specific installations conceived by international artists.

Speaking about his complex design, Koolhaas said: “The fondazione is not a preservation project nor a new architecture. Two conditions that are usually kept separate here confront each other in a state of permanent interaction – offering an ensemble of fragments that will not congeal into a single image, or allow any part to dominate the others. The complexity of the architecture will promote an unstable, open programming, where art and architecture will benefit from each other’s challenges.”

Prada museum will be open to everyone, in order to emphasise it is open to all cultural projects and art forms. Opened May 9, 2015.

Armani / Silos


Armani Silos which from now on, in number 40 Via Bergognone, will be at the disposal of whoever wants to know about the four decades of Armani style and its future. The big fashion show has featured a selection of the 10 years of Armani Privé high fashion.

The catwalk is prepared in the Armani Theatre in Via Bergognone, right in front of King George's new enterprise, namely the reconstruction of the complex of buildings and premises that were formerly a Nestlè factory, which the stylist-entrepreneur bought in 2006. This was an investment of some 50 million euros, which will represent a big economic commitment in terms of management. Design? Tadao Ando.

Visiting it is like a voyage through the fashion of Armani and its psychology. First of all there is the name Silos, so industrial and agricultural at the same time: "this building contained cereals, necessary to live, now it will contain clothes that also are necessary for life, so as to improve it," Armani says. "It seemed the right place 'to store' my collections. It is not like the usual museum, it is a permanent exhibit that will be renewed partially every six months".

On four floors, in an architectural style respecting the original rough cement that exalts elegance, grouped by theme there is the whole itinerary of pret-a-porter (600 outfits and 200 accessories). One passes from fluid jackets and many famous greige, from whites to stunning evening black, among festive dresses inspired by the orient and decò, very simple but also coloured, floral, spectacular: "this exhibit shows anyone who doesn't believe how I have been creative in many different, unexpected directions, that then became normal in fashion," Armani says.

The reconstruction work of the former industrial park is not finished - soon there will be other buildings and also "a space for the Armani Privé collections or perhaps Emporio, I must decide". Armani shows everything with the pride of someone who has busied himself personally with the project - in agreement with Milan city government - and its realisation. It's almost time for the triple celebration (the inauguration, the fashion show and the party), how does he feel to know his clothes still will be here a century from now? "I will be somewhere up there watching!" Armani says.

Renovation of Ca' Da Mosto, Venice

^^ :)

Ca' Da Mosto is one of the oldest buildings on the Grand Canal in Venice.
It was built in 13th century, before the year 1242, but some of the decorative elements on the façade are probably even earlier. The first two floors are a perfect example of Byzantine architecture in Venice.
3rd floor is more recent (I'd say 16th or 17th century Renaissance) while the last floor with square windows looks like an Austrian elevation (19th century).

After 30 years of dilapidation, the building has finally been turned into a hotel and completely renovated :)

Dresden? Alright, they reconstruct many buildings there. But not canals, for all I know.
Though, "neighbouring" Leipzig does that. :) Here's an overview. Leipzig's canal revitalisations of the past years are very similar to what's planned for Milan.

It's a great idea of course! Looking forward to see this happening. Though, who's financing this? Regional, federal and EU funds? Private investors, too?

Probably, the project will be financed by EU funds and private investors.
