  • Housed in a former industrial complex finely restored, the MEF offers visitors a cultural offer of international significance through exhibitions of modern and contemporary art. On two floors, the Museum hosts the following exhibitions Ettore Fico now: on the ground floor there is one of the most important photographic collections at the national level entitled "realism, neo-realism and reality. Italy 1932-1968, "climbing the stairs you reach" Second Chance ", a huge installation made by Eugenio Tibaldi, using objects forgotten and discarded in order to give a second life with a different interpretation. Ends the visit, an exhibition of photographs and polaroid of landscape created by Ettore Fico since the 1970s and was first presented to the public. Visual emotions worth living.

  • The Museum runs over 2 floors of exhibitions, plus a small mezzanine dedicated to Ettore Fig. Currently on the ground floor there is an exhibition about the neo-realist photography, depicting Italy since ' 40 to ' 68. The view is really nice, very well cared for the staging and lighting, with great shots. Upstairs a contemporary installation dedicated to the neighborhood where it is located, constantly changing. Is contemporary art, so not everyone likes, I found it interesting. The part dedicated to Fig is really reduced, with a score of small works. 2 hours between 1 and requires a visit satisfying, at least for this performance. The modern design museum is located in the Milan barrier, and it's easy to find free parking for your car. There is also a bar and a small shop of art objects (on the mezzanine).

  • I've been a few times in this magnificent space for modern and contemporary art at various exhibitions after its opening and then for a year or so there I went back because I couldn't find my correct that not enter part as other museums and foundations alike-merz, re rebaudengo, 107 ...-the circuit abbonamento musei. Finally, however, from the end of October the ettore fico joined and so we are back with great pleasure because I find it really nice. Perhaps the nicest as space organization and definitely like brightness between those mentioned. white walls almost blinding stun a bit but at the same time it is pleasant walk through it--is housed in a former industrial warehouse recovered via cigna, in the barriera di milano. is out of the way of the Centre but there is ample parking in the street or in the side stringers. a video sped up shows jobs this factory recovery and you can see the great work that has been done. first was a unique space, now is divided over two floors and then held several exhibitions. those currently in progress-which can be seen until January 29, 2017-3. REALISM, NEO-REALISM AND REALITY. ITALY 1932-1968 the ground floor houses a wonderful photographic exhibition. is only the first part of a project that will continue for 3 years and that will present to the public the photos of an important collection, created by guido bertero. in this first tranche are exhibited in the corridor and in the 4 side rooms approximately 220 pictures all in black and white of the period from 45 to 68, created by the greatest Italian and foreign photographers of that time: robert capa, cartier-bresson, evans, nino migliori, patellani, maraini, etc, etc, etc.. are divided into 10 sections, each dedicated to a great Italian movies of the time, except for one who picks up a book by carlo levi. the title recalls the subject matter. We like roberto rossellini's paisà, the future has an ancient heart of carlo levi, Italian journey by roberto rossellini, michelangelo antonioni, the vanquished the cammino della speranza by pietro germi, i bambini ci guardano by vittorio de sica, the glory days of luchino visconti, federico fellini's la dolce vita, poveri ma belli by dino risi and misery and nobility of mario mattioli. images on the walls of an Italy made by children, families living in one room together with their animals, women dressed in black in procession, dirty coal miners, immigrants with suitcases or stop at stations, drying laundry in the alleys of Naples, children dressed as Cubs, mussolini declaring war on France and Great Britain , speak facing the balcony of palazzo venezia and then is hung by his feet in piazzale loreto, alcide de gasperi during a rally, transvestites, the insane asylums, famous actors during the filming of the movie, patty pravo during a concert, the WaSP, the Roman nobility, the girls at the beach in costume ... each photo is accompanied by a tag that shows year , author and location of the photo. you across the country, from veneto to Sicily, Sardinia more archaic to emilia, from Apulia to Rome. among the best pictures definitely sheets fluttering in Neapolitan alley, that of robert capa famous Sicilian peasant indicating the American soldiers the Germans with a long stick-is not the most famous but was taken at the same event, Sophia loren and an actress who seems to talk to the monk painted on the wall of the cloister of the baths of Diocletian. SECOND CHANCE of a different kind but not less interesting than the exhibition held on the upper floor. is a huge installation designed especially for this space, created by contemporary artist eugenio tibaldi, born in alba in 77, which has long lived in Naples and in 2016 moved into this neighborhood to study its disused industrial architectures and converse with its inhabitants. from this confrontation did this huge work, made of pieces of recovery found wandering the streets in the area and added his recent accomplishments and other specially for this show. the concept of recovery and reuse the title, second chance ... passing a white plastic tent on which stands a sign that warns the ideologies you enter the hypothetical bathroom-just-right room-where do you see some sort of advertising projected on the wall showing some special health-Cup with lid that lifts and closes by itself, shower tray covered with stones, etc-then enter into the heart of this kind of big "apartment" decorated with items recovered here and there , whose supporting structure is made of iron pipes. There are such plans, lamps, sofas, chairs, desks, paintings, photos and pictures of pieces of the neighborhood, abandoned buildings and new structures that have arisen in place than others and sometimes ... collage made of sentences written by the people of Milan, mostly people who immigrated here from other parts of Italy and here they began to live and work. at the bottom of the course, on the right wall, 20 pictures "tell" the experience of coming out to the streets of the neighborhood made tibaldi. are the dates of his outings, which were held from February to September. I think he has pinned his impressions on these walks but writing isn't the best and I could not unfortunately read them ... on the terrace-where you can't get out but I usually always found the open door-there is an installation, made of pipes to water, sinks, pallet, hydraulic hoses, a children's pool ... kinda reminds a tree ... though apparently absolutely chaotic I found this gigantic work fascinating!!! anywhere you lay your eyes note a particular that maybe had escaped, a detail ... I liked very much. ETTORE FICO descending the stairs at the bottom leads to a last little space where is the third exhibition. one dedicated to the painter ettore fig, which already had been made a much broader view when the Museum was opened. in this case it's about fifty works, not yet exposed, ranging from 70 to more recent years: serigraphs, watercolors, drawings, paintings, photographs and notebooks where he did his sketches to be transformed then into paintings, they encased in 5 cases. the theme is predominantly the garden, most often of his home near Turin, which you can see in some small photographs. some screen prints are for sale. highly recommended to visit the exhibitions and in this space, which takes about an hour and a half. is open from Wednesday to Sunday, from 14 to 19, Saturdays and Sundays from 11 to 19. ATTENTION: Sunday 20 November a sign on the door warns that it will be closed from 14. the ticket price is 10 €, free for subscription holders museums as mentioned above. in front of the ticket office there is a bar, for those who want to eat or drink.
