Palazzo Reale: the heart of a “Museum City”
And while March kicks off with the second edition of MuseoCity (2-4 March), Palazzo Reale confirms its status as a vibrant cultural hub. Palazzo Reale's Sala delle Cariatidi will host an emotion-packed visual show from 3 March to 2 April. Curated by art historian Stefano Zuffi and titled ‘Il Quinto Stato | Milano, Città di Musei', this visual show, featuring a kaleidoscope of images and sounds, challenges the viewer to take on a more active role than simply art observer for the first time ever. A unique chance to enjoy an immersive experience thanks to the screening of 90 masterpieces preserved at Milanese museums. This show, which is free-of-charge, is a installation composed of other works that symbolically explore the history of the city and the people who shaped its future over the centuries. This unique interactive exhibition will be held against the backdrop of Palazzo Reale's Sala delle Cariatidi, one of the city's most prestigious historical venues which is in itself, a work of art (see photo below). The Palazzo will also host two other exhibitions during this period: one dedicated to Albrecht Dürer and the other featuring masterpieces from the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
