Fondazione Prada is the innovative citadel of contemporary art in Milano, home to a permanent collection, plus numerous temporary exhibitions and artistic events.
It is the brainchild of Miuccia Prada, who has transformed a distillery dating back to the 1910s into the most sought-after destination for lovers of contemporary culture.
Three diverse edifices stand out on the Porta Romana skyline - the Torre, a striking asymmetrical glass and exposed white concrete construction, the Haunted House with its gilded exterior, and the Podium, a vast central two-storey space.
Not to be missed is Wes Anderson’s Bar Luce that retains the atmosphere of the historic Milanese cafès of the ‘50s and ‘60s. Interestingly, the arched ceiling recreates a ‘miniature’ version of the vaulted glass roof and décor of the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele.
