  • I went for a drink, the bar also open space and anonymous same old factory, I thought too much concrete, more like a prison construction or field lager

  • Beautiful view that part of the system of art and culture in Italy between the two world wars, starting from research and the study of historical documents and photographs that reveal the spatial, temporal, social and political context in which the works of art are been created, staged, experienced and interpreted by the public at the time. Pity about the bad service. I had booked tickets online, but I haven't arrived. It took three phone calls and other mail to receive them, but no one apologized for the mixup. Same Music Foundation staff would be made redundant and poorly educated all shirty.

  • There should be space for two reviews: one concerning the recovery of an abandoned industrial area and one regarding the current temporary exhibition Post Zang Tumb Tuuum. 1. recovery is that of a distillery (Sis) that dates back to the ' 10 of the 20th century, where they produced the brandy Cavallino Rosso (can be seen on youtube carousels degli anni ' 50). No complaints at all: bar, restaurant, a Golden Tower and beautiful bathrooms. Congratulations for the courage and commitment. 2. the current view on art life and politics in Italy 1918-1943 worth the visit: lots of operfe exposed, many from private collections or from overseas museums accompanied by photos and testimonials. Unfortunately, the path is not clear and it comes up with the doubt of having missed something, so many stairs and showed no good if there were alternative routes for people with walking difficulties. It lacks an audio guide and explanatory lettering of the works are small and not always close: one for all the portrait of Arturo Toscanini to Wildt lying in the room before. The thing that I have to complain about was the inability to see both opera faces Wildt entitled ' character proud, docile nature ": I could not see the side" docile "because the attendant on duty called me back saying it was not allowed climb the platform and go behind the work. If this was indeed the intention of the editor should have been allowed to the vision of the far side with the simple use of a mirror, if not with a rotating support. €10 ticket, discount for Fai members

  • First of all I have to say, that Fondazione Prada has much potential. It is a really big area with different buildings which can be full of art. But I am saying "can be" because when my wife and I went there. There were only 3 buildings open, because they were preparing new exhibitions. But still we had to pay the full price! When asking the staff at the ticket booth if there is any discount when most of the exhibition halls are closed I just received a rude answer. We thought that there might be enough art visible when they charge the full price but ist was a huge disappointment. Not much to see. Within 15 min. we could have finished all the art... The highlight was the Luce Bar which is designed in an American style ...
  • Some unusual works but not a great deal to see, when we went only three rooms were open and no concessions were made on the ticket price. The ticket did also get us into a photography museum in the city centre but this was also very minimal and uninteresting. The staff were quite unhelpful and overall I wouldn’t recommend visiting unless most rooms are open. The cafe was an entirely different experience, lovely staff and great atmosphere. Worth a visit but don’t go out of your way.
  • Wonderful architecture and beautiful expos! A really nice option for those looking for a cultural moment alone, in couple of with the family. That's just a pity that they monitor visitors in such an aggressive way. Quite incompatible with modern and contemporary art...
  • One goes there for the architecture as much as for the art. Check out the exhibition "Post Zang Tumb Tuuum. Art Life Politics: Italian 1918-1943" it was our favourite!
  • The only problem, the people at the reception desk and at the cloak room. Too good for their jobs. They think...
