The tip of the city aims to promote its rich art scene. Among the most significant exhibitions we suggest the activities organized by the Royal Palace, Mudec and GAM. Furthermore you can also visit the museums hosting permanent exhibitions. So the art in Milan doesn’t go on vacation.
Royal Palace offers more than one appointment for the art lovers; here the exhibitions in programming are more than one. Recently It was inaugurated a retrospective of the Dutch artist Escher, famous worldwide for its mazes with their inimitable perspectives and geometries that combine graphics and a refined technique which owe much to the art of the Italian Novecento.
