An opulent art nouveau glass façade (or Liberty style, as it is known in Italy), floral reliefs and decorative motifs on the coloured tiles - this is Palazzina Liberty; a beautifully unique edifice positioned in the centre of Parco Formentano.
Originally it was a popular café-restaurant then, between 1974 and 1980, it became the theatrical workshop for the Dario Fo and Franca Rame company to whom it was recently dedicated.
Currently, it is an auditorium, consecrated to music at the behest of the Municipality’s Department of Culture. Since February 1st 2016, it has hosted the Palazzina Liberty in Musica project, a programme of concerts and musical events coordinated by the Municipal Leisure Department in collaboration with local cultural associations. The programme is varied and comprises concerts by the Civic Wind Orchestra of Milano, the Milano Classica season, the Liederìadi Festival, the La Risonanza concerts and numerous other artistic residences.
The aim is to promote chamber music in all its genres and to endorse local and national creative resources, whilst conserving the space as part of the city’s architectural heritage to benefit the urban regeneration and social fabric.
The Palazzina Liberty in Musica season has currently over 140 events on the programme, thus, definitively consecrating Palazzina Liberty as a new musical auditorium for the city.
