Architecture of Museo del Novecento

Architecture of Museo del Novecento

The Palazzo dell' Arengario has housed the Museo del Novecento since 2010, making it an extraordinary example of architecture and, now, a remarkable exhibit engaging directly with the city. The Rota Group rebuilt this historic structure, which was designed by Griffini, Magistretti, Muzio, and Portaluppi. It is now home to a beautifully layered collection of Italian modern art. The Civiche Raccolte d'Arte (Municipal Art Collections) of Milan had to be organized around two distinct poles, which led to the alteration of the Palazzo dell' Arengario. The old Villa Reale buildings were intended to house 19th-century collections, but the Palazzo dell' Arengario was chosen to house the exhibitions of 20th-century art.The latter was especially significant because of the harmony between its architecture and the collection it was intended to display.This solution allowed for the optimum utilization of the internal space, transforming the structure into one of Milan's most important cultural hubs. As a practical component, it connects many levels, from the subway up to the expansive terrace overlooking the Duomo, the enormous spiral staircase inside the structure is undoubtedly the Museum's most stunning architectural feature.

The exhibition includes about 400 pieces that are arranged chronologically. The Quarto Stato (The Fourth Estate) by Giuseppe Pellizza da Volpedo, to whom a whole corridor along the open-access helical staircase is dedicated, was published in 1902, marking the beginning of the time period. The Collection then opens with early 1900s works by Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, Paul Klee, Wassily Kandinsky, and Amedeo Modigliani as a tribute to global avant-garde movements. A hall honoring Alberto Burri and the Art Informel movement is located on the third level and features works by notable Italian artists such as Emilio Vedova, Giuseppe Capogrossi, Gastone Novelli, Tancredi, Carla Accardi, and Osvaldo Licini. As the exhibition goes on, the Luciano Fabro memorial hall begins to emphasize installation through the creations of artists like Jannis Kounellis, Eliseo Mattiacci, and Amalia Del Ponte. It ends with Nunzio Di Stefano, Paolo Icaro, Giuseppe Spagnulo, and Alighiero Boetti at the start of the 1980s.Museo del Novecento Tickets will take you to the following famous artworks inside the museum.
