Fondazione Prada

A space dedicated to contemporary art and culture, co-chaired by fashion icon Miuccia Prada. 

Not in the very center of Milano, but just a 10-minute walk from the metro station Lodi T.i.b.b., you’ll find Fondazione Prada, a modern building that houses a contemporary art and culture institution co-chaired by fashion icon Miuccia Prada.

You’ve obviously heard the name Prada in connection with high fashion, but may not know that Miuccia is also strictly connected to Milano. She has lead Fondazione Prada with her husband Patrizio Bertelli since 1995. It is a place dedicated to art and culture: The institution organizes film festivals, exhibitions, design projects and more.

Walking through the space is a joy, as you experience its presence of minimalism. Finally you can have coffee in a bar Luce, designed by film director Wes Anderson. Yes, it really looks like it!
