MILAN — For those who are tired of the “usual” places, there are new openings all over Milan ready to become new destinations.
A new Louis Vuitton destination opened in the renovated 1930s building, known as the old Traversi garage. Developed over three floors, the first and second floors are also recognizable by the chosen color palette of pink and yellow for women and Keaton blue for men, dedicated to women’s and men’s collections respectively. The top floor will host special projects from Louis Vuitton, including pop-ups and artistic exhibits.
For the global launch of the Louis Vuitton x Yayoi Kusama collection, the third floor hosts an immersive installation in the world of the Japanese artist. Countless “endless points” cover both the floor and the walls. The collection is on sale: bags, shoes, fragrances and clothing for both men and women. As a final touch, three large, brightly colored pumpkins are placed on the building’s terrace, symbolizing the artist’s alter ego, a hostile nature, fears and anxieties, and a reassuring memory of his childhood. said home.

Roman tradition reached the heart of Milan, the artistic Brera region, with Il Marchese. A few steps from the La Scala theater, the restaurant is the second restaurant owned by Davide Solari and Lorenzo Renzi, after a first in the Italian capital.
The elegant tavern offers Roman dishes such as Pasta Amatriciana, Cacio e Pepe, Carbonara and Gricia, served straight from the pan. Inspired by the much-loved Italian movie “Il Marchese del Grillo” starring Alberto Sordi, the decor offers guests the opportunity to experience all the charm of 19th century nobility. The space is sophisticated with its neoclassical style and precious Milanese marble. Its specialty is the amaro bar with over 600 liqueurs.

“Do it right” is chef Riccardo Quadri’s mantra. He recently started his first solo project with Quadri Bistrot in Via Solferino, ranging from snacks to fine dining. Quadri reinterprets Italian and French cuisine in a contemporary way, experimenting with seasonal vegetables for asparagus risotto, for example, or combining scallops from Japan with curry. The drink list has been specially compiled by the young bartender and one of his suggestions is quadri-tini based on vodka, gin and extra dry vermouth. The lounge, cocktail bar with long counter, living room and restaurant room are the result of collaboration with local artisans.

In this example of antiquities, the concept of recycling turns into an exhibition at Fondazione Prada. The work, which will run until February 27, focuses on the current moment when an old piece or ruin leaves its original state by gaining a new meaning through reuse. The project is being developed in two of the Foundation’s buildings: the Podium and the Cistern. The first allows visitors to deal directly with the artifacts, allowing for a closer inspection of the pieces. In the Cistern, the encounter with objects takes place gradually and encourages different perspectives, for example from the narrow perspective of a room built in an already existing environment. A core of work that also highlights how the life of Achilles (4th century AD), like the embossed marble table, ensures that a work of art is preserved when recycled when turned into decoration.

Among these is Eros and Metamorphosis, which reflects its central role in his poetic choices of subjects such as love, friendship, and eroticism. The art of sculpture and jewelery is underlined in “Eye Pleasure”, which also shows the role of nature and landscape in the artist’s life. Painter Hieronymus, still in Palazzo Reale, for a leap into the Renaissance era Bosch is introduced to the public with an exhibition titled “Bosch Renaissance from One Another”.
