Fondazione Prada has two galleries in Milan. The newest is Osservatorio Fondazione Prada, which sits alongside high-end stores in Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. The gallery, which opened last year, is dedicated to photography and “visual languages”. It’s not just the cuttingedge exhibitions that are worth seeing – the space has a 100ft window which offers sweeping views of the city. The second space, designed by the Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas, is on the outskirts of Milan and set in a converted 1910 distillery with retro flourishes including a funky bar with a Fifties and Sixties vibe decorated by Wes Anderson. Insider tip: admission to one gallery includes entrance to the other, if used within seven days of your first visit – so keep your original ticket.
