9 JULY THE BEAUTY OF CONTRASTS
Apart from being one of the most interesting innovations on the contemporary art scene, this is one of the few exhibition sites in Milan that can be visited on Mondays. The new ‘Torre’ at the Fondazione Prada is a 60-metre high tower featuring nine levels, each boasting a distinctive character. The Torre completes the exhibition headquarters of the Foundation designed by Studio OMA’s Rem Koolhaas, Chris van Duijn and Federico Pompignoli. Six of the building’s new floors host ‘Atlas’, a project resulting from a dialogue between Miuccia Prada and Germano Celant. It features works created by internationally acclaimed artists like Jeff Koons, Edward Kienholz, William N. Copley, Damien Hirst and Carsten Höller, between 1960 and 2016. The seventh floor houses the Torre restaurant that contains original pieces from the Four Seasons Restaurant in New York. The tower’s last surprise is the rooftop terrace. Conceived as a multi-functional space, it includes a bar area, where, amidst a play of light and reflections, visitors can admire a 360-degree view over the city.
