  • Fresh from Bramante's genius expressed in the Church of San Satiro and Luini in San Giorgio al Palazzo came back here, in worthy culmination of so much and such beauty, to review the beautiful figures carved by Francesco Messina, unparalleled in narrating the grace and loveliness of the dancers as well as the harshest and dramatic aspects of life.

  • Despite being in the Centre is unknown even to Milan. Blame the absence of signage on the Carrobbio. There is not even a sign of Touring that keeps open the Museum with its volunteers! The former Church of St. Sixtus was the sculptor's studio and address. His death left many works which are Common Messina displayed here. In addition to the famous horses you can admire the bronzes of ballerinas, including Carla Fracci and Luciana Savignano. Is a collection in a place that allows you to imagine the creative process of the sculptor. Many exhibits are furnished with pieces that integrate with those of Messina. The last one, my name is horse, has enjoyed a good success.

  • The gold-plated silver horse head, lending the Louvre and Sassanid era, is perhaps the most striking piece in the visitor's imagination than this little precious view-cameo in the Deconsecrated Church of san Sisto left, now Museum Messina, a few steps from the Carrobbio. I was lucky enough to visit the exhibition after an interesting lesson-lecture on the iconography of the horse from ancient civilizations to modern art. The title of the exhibition is based on the novel by Orhan Pamuk "my name is red", which has as its main character a miniaturist active at the Court of Suleiman the magnificent. The exhibits are all of high quality, some coming from the Parisian Institut du Monde Arabe: you can admire a beautiful Persian miniature illustrating the Kham-if of Nezami, Mughal miniatures Haute Epoque fine Italian bronzes, a glittering Persian tile stove, a precious cup of collections of Poildi Pandian. The elegant setting is entirely at the service of the legibility of the exhibits, and the exhibition is accompanied by a fine catalogue of workshop Books. To see.

  • I saw a beautiful photographic exhibition on Canova. Space on two floors, many statues on display.
