Fondazione Prada – Milan

This is the 4th and last part of my trip in Milan, which I took a  few months ago with my partner. You can click and read  the Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3.

This last part is dedicated to one museum only,  the Fondazione Prada. We went there on the last day of our trip, but I wish we had gone there sooner. The ticket for the museum was also for the observatory which is located at Milan city centre. Unfortunately, we did not have the time to visit it, maybe next time…

The museum

The Fondazione Prada is not just one building, but multiple.  Each building had a different exhibition. Regarding the architecture I could say that it was a mixture of modern buildings with some classic details…

One of the most iconic buildings of the Museum is the below gold building. It is like a lighthouse, you can see it from afar. I really love this building! It has such a character and was designed by Oma architects .

The below exhibition is called “Led the Big Charade” and it is by KIENHOLZ. You can read more about it here

This is another exhibition called  “slight Agitation 2/4” by Pamela Rosenkranz. Read more here

This was the entrance for another exhibition. By Thomas Demand called “processo grottesco”.

This is it, 30 tons of cardboard! And everything started from a postcard! You can read more here 

This was the last exhibition we saw. Called “Extinct in the wild” by Michael Wang. This exhibition was really interesting as we could see rare plants, some of them near extinction. Another interesting thing was the care of the plants. Plants are living organisms so the staff was trained in order to care about the plants!

In conclusion, this short trip to Milan was short, but very very interesting! Milan isn’t the most inexpensive city, but still you can enjoy a cup of tea or coffee. You can also enjoy a night walk along the river at the Navigli District. You can have a drink or something to eat…  There are hundred shops to visit, just to see things or to shop! There are also a lot of museums (read Parts 1,2  and 3).

Anyway, overall the experience of Milan is amazing. And it is friendly city for everyone to visit!

Thanks for reading my post, hope you liked it!
