Seven art works to discover in Milan

Milan has something to offer in every corner, even for art lovers. Not just in its museums and splendid architecture, there are also installations, sculptures, and exhibitions spread through the metropolis that is Milan. 

 

Walking through the streets of Milan, it is not unusual to bump into authentic works of art, from the oldest through to the more contemporary. While they observe the city moving and changing, in the hubbub that it is so well known for, they perform their most important task, they become a part of people’s lives, stimulate thoughts, create memories, and attract events. Some of them become symbols for local inhabitants, points of reference and meeting places. Of course, once noticed, they are impossible to ignore.
From the thought-provoking L.O.V.E. in Piazza Affari to the iconic Needle, thread and knot in Piazza Cadorna, each of these seven works has a unique tale to tell and its own distinctive artistic mark. Join us on a visual journey that will give you a close-up experience of the modern and contemporary art world, in modern streets and historic corners, under the city skies. Follow us on this artistic tour of Milan!
