TRITTICO at Fondazione Prada, Milano Saturday, January 9, 2016


Still planning a weekend-trip? So, if you're in the limbo of indecision, I strongly suggest you to visit Fondazione Prada in Milan.
The area is a renovation of an old distillery of the 1910's, which is now composed of ten different buildings - seven already existing, and three new structures.
My very favorite buildings of the whole structure are two: the golden tower named Haunted House - probably the most photographed and shared image of the Fondazione - and the Cisterna, the place dedicated to TRITTICO, an awesome exhibition area and concept. TRITTICO is a dynamic exhibition space made of three vertical structures which host, time by time, three carefully selected works from the Collezione Prada, that rotate periodically. By its strategy of display, this exhibition space showcaseunexpected patterns between similar and dissimilar artists and artworks, highlighting the importance of personally get in contact with some artworks, in a context quite different from that of a "classic" museum. In fact, by entering in the Cisterna, you are faced with three areas, each of them dedicated to a specific work in which you're completely absorbed.

Currently, the Cisterna presents a selection of works reflecting on the theme of the representation of the animal world, so you can admire Lost Love (2000) by Damien Hirst, Did you know I am single too? (2014) by Paola Pivi and Turisti (1997) by Maurizio Cattelan.
