#2 FONDAZIONE PRADA
Ideated and curated by Polish artist Goshka Macuga, it develops starting from a fundamental question: how important is the “end” issue in art nowadays?
From the feeling of anguish which characterises humanity in front of the idea of its own extinction, the artist explores themes such as time, origin, end, collapse and rebirth, in a multi disciplinary itinerary that gathers sculpture, installation, photography, architecture and design.
The structure also counts on the presence of a cinema – free, upon reservation – and Bar Luce, Designed by film director Wes Anderson to recreate the atmosphere of a typical Milanese cafè.

#4 VALENTINO FLAGSHIP STORE
The creative directors of Valentino, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli are adding something to their deep exploration of the various cultures from the wild and tribal African continent.
“Connecting cultures, windows on the world” is an exhibition/installation not to miss in via Montenapoleone, through the windows of the Maison’s Milanese boutique during Milan Fashion Week.
Africa is the real protagonist of Valentino Spring Summer 2016 Collection with his imperfect and vibrant purity, a great inspiration which can be found in various shapes in the display of the flagship stores in New York, Milan, Paris, Rome, London and Hong Kong.
The gallerist Carmen Moreno, curator of the exhibition “Tribal in the unconsciousness of the contemporary” gave birth to this project together with Serge Uberti, the Italian-French artist whose works were displayed combined with ethnographic African art pieces.
The windows of Valentino Milanese flagship store glean from these works of art, creating a harmonic blend with the creations from Spring Summer 2016.
Big Fish, the resident dj, overheats the dancefloor with their vibes of electro pop, nu disco and urban, for the pleasure of clubbers fashionistas.
