MILAN: lockdown is over, but carefully
Milan has planned a complete entertainment offer for locals and tourists: after a long lockdown, the Italian capital of culture, fashion and design is back on track. New safety measures have been adopted for cultural events, museums, open-air concerts and exhibitions: tickets online, more opening hours, masks for all visitors and limited, curtailed entrance.
Milan is re-thinking itself and does not stand still: nonetheless the strict care to contain the down-scaling pandemic, it showcases its efforts to be a hospitable city, also during this difficult summer 2020.
At the Royal Palace, two exhibitions: one about Georges de la Tour and another about the concept of life after death in Old Egypt; at Armani Silos a photo exhibition is dedicated to Peter Lindbergh. Giorgio Armani personally organized it;
At Pirelli Hangar Bicocca two contemporary exhibitions about light installations, videomaking and ceramics. Museum Poldi Pezzoli hosts “Memos“, which focuses on fashion evolution during this century; from Gauguin, Matisse and Chagall at the “Museo Diocesano” to “Hero Bricks” at “Wow Spazio Fumett0“, showcasing LEGO-brick installations.
Free ticket entrance at MUDEC and at the Brera Art Gallery, during summer, as well as at the “Triennale di Milano” and at the Design Museum.
Festival “Milanesiana 2020” will bring events and talk shows, whereas the “Estate Sforzesca” at the Castle opens to culture and concerts under a “new normality”.
Theatres are re-opening with shows under the stars: the “Piccolo Teatro“, “Franco Parenti Theatre” and “Theatre Martinitt” with music, performances and cabaret.
Milan dos not change its mood: the entertainment offer is up to expectations and a bit more. The city is keeping its allure and its charming fascination.
