In Milan, dell'Arengario spaces, adjacent to the Cathedral, the Museum opened the highly anticipated 900.
He opened with great fanfare, present the highest public offices, December 5, 2010, and was immediately boom of visits, we are talking about 900 Museum , housed in the spaces of 'Arengario and part of the Palazzo Reale in Milan.
The design of the CIMAC (Civic Museum of Contemporary Art), already in the making since the late nineties, has had its happy ending, and spaces designed by architects Italo Rota and Fabio Fornasari have become a point of convergence of collections that too time were tossed from one museum to another. Before the permanent, then the halls of the Castello Sforzesco, and finally - hidden to the public - in storage to be cataloged.
This applies to the core of works (by Umberto Boccioni at Osvaldo Licini, by Giorgio Morandi to Henri Matisse), but there are exceptions and migration. The Fourth State of Pellizza by Volpedo - now the first stage of the exhibition - the works of Marino Marini and the little girl running on the balcony of Giacomo Balla come from the Gallery of Modern Art , and some works by Piero Manzoni, Mario Sironi and Guttuso come directly from the Casa-Museo Boschi-Di Stefano . And so we can talk, with good reason, of a significant reshuffling of the city's artistic heritage.
The second part (1) is a continuous succession of unusual pearls: from neon Lucio Fontana staged at the Triennale of 1951 - now visible from the Piazza Duomo.
And not least are the work of Capogrossi, Jannis interactive spaces designed by the Milanese group T (try to Davide Boriani, where you can get lost in a continuous flourishing of mirrors, colors and lights), the décollage Mimmo Rotella Pistoletto and mirror, a girl who escapes from its surface.
The central location near the Duomo and the main exhibition center (Royal Palace), free entry until the end of February, but the big names of the artists in the collection - and, let's face it, that flavor does come back in delirium in the crowd - are attracting the masses. So if you want to get in, get in line, please.
