  • The exhibition by Bruno Munari in the MEF, in a stylish renovation of an old industrial building, is certainly a very interesting event. A must-have for those who appreciate already Munari, you need a guided tour for those who do not know him

  • The architectural layout allows for a pleasant visit and well articulated. Only niggles lighting and acoustics, to be reviewed in the last double volume. The design is minimalist and well cared for.

  • I went back to the Museum for the exhibition dedicated to bruno munari and found it very interesting, full of works by the artist. Maybe kinda hard to "read" not being an expert in art and especially the type of work he performed. 3 panels to introduce path beginning his biography and the multiplicity of fields where he worked, from design to architecture, from painting to the world of childhood, etc. also you can read a dozen guards with his sentences referring to art and his working method, in Italian and in English. Perhaps it would be appropriate to add brief explanations at least on its most important works, in order to better understand his art and learn more about this incredible character. on both floors on which the exhibition is tried to enclose a bit throughout his career, starting from its beginnings in the years 30-munari was born in 1907 and died in 98-up to more recent works of the years 90. approximately 260 artworks are exhibited. in the first room of the ground floor you can see 12 paintings from the series "positive negative" like abstract paintings but are actually simple coloured geometric shapes fit together, forming a smooth surface. in the second room are exposed about twenty black and white photos, collages and drawings of the period between 30 and 40 years and third 11 projects with theoretical reconstructions of his imaginary objects. in the hall you can see some 70 drawings and other negative and positive. at the bottom of some of his sculptures of the years 50, as that "travel". one of these is equipped with a motor that causes the movement. in the last room are exposed 10 projects for useless machines and as many of these works-seemingly simple, made of metal and other materials, hanging from the ceiling-high voltage, next to 4 machines. These are simple pieces of small diameter logs kept in tension through a tangle of wires. Here you can also see the concave-convex metal opera, which is a grid of metal bent. It is one of the first installations appeared in art history along with those of lucio fontana. upstairs the visitor is greeted by 4 white sheets on which are drawn in black bird, a bus, a high tension pylon: is the representation of what and as you can see in Milan when there is fog. in the room next door exposes 14 works that show his commitment to the study of the composition of light. an educational video by 30 seconds show "use" the 3 light panels at the side. These are the polariscop. backlit drapes appear colorless figures. using a clear plastic holder you can see those same colour forms. in a video you can listen to a lecture by Bruno munari held on the occasion of activation in Venice for the new degree course in industrial design in 92. Unfortunately the sound isn't perfect. also when I was there it was a classical music concert on this floor and this made it easy to listen to. often the Museum organizes events of this kind. is present on the internet for those who want to deal calmly. the next section is devoted to faces, with 35 drawings and pictures where you can see among others the faces of munari and his wife and 2 simple sculptures. the remainder of the route can still be admired a hundred of its productions: booklets and catalogs, bizarre objects such as talking forks and grattugiaparole, drawings, sculptures as the Chair for very brief visits and the screen and numerous works in the series of "illegible writings by unknown people", i.e. characters similar to those Arabs, Etruscans etc. .. but strictly fictional. the exhibition is open until 11 June. the Council really even to those unfamiliar with this character, in order to approach a bit to its immense artistic production, although it is not easy to understand it ... you visit in an hour and a half, not including the video which is composed of 25 pieces lasting about 3 minutes each. a bit secluded and almost "invisible" is also another artist unfortunately relegated to space bar. It is cosimo veneziano, on display until April 16. an information panel clear and well done introduces his art that explores especially on the monuments and buildings that at one point disappear from the urban landscape. I'm only 12 works-photographs, drawings and marble sign that recalls those of Roman-period. It is nothing that but he might have deserved more suitable space. If you don't know it's there and you don't go to the bar which is opposite the ticket office you may not see it. takes less than 10 minutes. I went on a Sunday afternoon and I didn't expect it but there was no queue to make a ticket! only about 15 minutes but this then causes some crowding in the halls. tickets cost € 10, free with Museum subscription.
