Three unmissable exhibitions in Milan

October 2017

Caravaggio, Toulouse-Lautrec and La Scala’s stage costumes at Palazzo Reale.

Milan’s exhibition season starts at Palazzo Reale with three unmissable artistic and media events that are the perfect addition to any meeting held in Milan.

Dentro Caravaggio
Possibly the media event of the year, it started on September 29th, Caravaggio’s birth date, and saw over 60,000 advanced reservations made on the very first day – prompting the City Council to extend opening hours until 10:30 pm for four days a week. 20 paintings loaned by some of the most illustrious museums in the world, such as the Uffizi in Florence, the Met in New York City, London’s National Gallery and Naples’ Museum of Capodimonte, are brought together for the first time ever. The exhibit is curated by Rossella Vodret.
Dentro Caravaggio – 29 September 2017 > EXTENDED to February 4th 2018

Toulouse-Lautrec: The Fleeting World
From October 17, 2017, to February 18, 2018, an extensive monographic exhibition highlights the artistic brilliance and prolific journey of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, aristocratic-born bohemian artist who accurately portrayed the decadence of Paris at the end of the 19th century. The exhibit displays over 250 of the artist’s works: 35 paintings, litographies, etchings, 22 prints and posters. It’s curated by Claudia Zevi and Danièle Devynck, director of the Toulouse-Lautrec Museum in Albi.
Toulouse-Lautrec: The Fleeting World – 17 October 2017 > 18 February 2018

Incantesimi. Teatro alla Scala’s costumes from the Thirties to today
24 extraordinary pieces, carefully chosen from the large collection of Teatro alla Scala’s stage costumes and restored for the occasion, are displayed from October 10, 2017, to January 28, 2018, at Palazzo Reale. The event is promoted by the Association “Amici della Scala” to celebrate its 40th birthday. The exhibition is divided into 4 different sections, with every costume referring to a legendary production (directed by Visconti, Strehler, Ronconi, Wilson, Carsen, and other iconic directors) from the Thirties to the present day. The costumes were worn by divas such as Callas, Tebaldi, Fracci and Nureyev. The project is curated by Vittoria Crespi Morbio.
