Palazzo Reale: the heart of a “Mu­seum City”

Where Milan - - WHERE NOW FOCUS -

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.
