    Italy galleries of Piazza della Scala in Milan are well worth a visit, both for the beautiful exhibition location, both for the art exhibitions that are scheduled, they are always very interesting. Last winter I saw there the beautiful exhibition on Canaletto, Bellotto and very comprehensive and well documented historically. Now to August we came back to visit the exhibition "New York New York" which is really amazing, you can admire many masterpieces of modern art that really deserve, eg. the famous work of Lucio Fontana ' spatial concept: Venice Moon ", beautiful! So, definitely recommend it to everyone, both Milanese and tourists, to visit this beautiful Museum site in downtown Milan. The permanent collection is of great beauty and value! Among other things, Milan Italy galleries in August remained open all day and totally free for all, and this seemed to me to be a very successful cultural event for the entire city of Milan! Congratulations then Milan Italy galleries for this excellent initiative!

    until 17 September Italy hosts the exhibition galleries New York New York, Italian art the rediscovery of America, which is housed in cramped rooms for temporary installations, some 15, accessed as you enter the large building, once home to a Bank and now returned to the city as exhibition of paintings and sculptures of 8 and 900. the exhibition is divided into 8 sections-identified by four panels in Italian and English, concise, simple and easy to read-you can see about 100 works-mostly paintings but also some sculpture made between 20 and 60 years by artists who entertained relations with the United States. an opportunity to make them known to the general public from overseas was an exhibition held in New York in ' 49 and this is the starting point of the exhibition. Here are presented a few masterpieces on display during the event: Carrà, Balla, Boccioni, Morandi, guide, are some of these. There is a girl who runs on the balcony of the Bale. follow the artists who worked primarily in between 50 and 60 years and who have had dealings with American universities, in some cases taking courses at them, with museums, with the great collectors including the inevitable Peggy Guggenheim, with other representatives of American arts. We can admire works of Burri, Carla Accardi, Afro, Capogrossi, Cagli, Guttuso, Vedova, Scialoja, Consagra, Dorazio, Pistoletto with his classic mirror paintings, Castellani, Mirko, Nivola, Tancredi, tomato and fountain. alongside these works you can see even some, 5 or 6, by American artists particularly bound by friendship with our Italians. among these Calder with his mobile, Kline, de Kooning and Twombly. each work is accompanied by the artist's name and tag indicating the title of the work its provenance. they come mostly from Italian museums and collections or private foundations. is also a short video for New York by 12 minutes and, at the end of the path, another video gives a brief overview of the artists in the exhibition and their relations with the United States. It lasts about ten minutes. the view is not very challenging. you visit in about an hour and a half. tickets cost €10, free the first Sunday of each month. recommended visit. p.s. the exhibition goes to the nearby museo del 900, where most artists ' ties with suspects are iconic figure of Kennedy and photography project about New York by Ugo Mulas made between ' 64 and ' 67.

    The Scala was closed due to a holiday so we decided to visit this museum. We were extra lucky since it was free this day! But it's a beautiful building with a nice mix of modern art and Italian painti...  more »

  • Lovely place to visit anyway, plus the current Canaletto exhibition. A gem of Milan, but cheap tickets available without booking (this was UK half-term and the city generally busy). The cafe is as good/better than most I saw in Milan, yet so reasonably priced. Really appreciated that our autistic son entered free with one of us free as carer. He loved the free audio guide (just leave passport/license etc. as deposit - seems to be common in Milan).
  • A special and unique museum full of masterpieces and history. A new one and not well known! Amazing !
  • This used to be the hq of a major italian bank. Must go for the rich art collection and the nice building.
  • Gallerie D'Italia is an incredible art exhibition gallery where you will see just the best of the best from an art point of view. The exhibitions are among the most refined in Europe able to surprise you with the most amazing masterpieces coming from all around the world. The permanent exhibition is also there to full your mind and soul with the magic that Art is able to create
  • Nice museum but a bit boring. If you tell them you're an architecture student you get in for free apparently.

This area offers easy foot access to most of Milan's main sites, as well as some of the city's finest restaurants, shops, and theaters. The central area is also quite crowded, and comfortable rooms in good hotels can be very expensive.
