Milan’s ExpoinCittà’s Six Conversations in Art

While at first glance the grand artwork of Rome and Florence may appear to upstage that found in Milan, the city manages to hold its own with a solid collection of artistic treasures. In honor of six of Milan’s most celebrated masterpieces, ExpoinCittà will hold “Six Conversations in Art,” one during each month of Expo, selected to correspond with a monthly theme inspired by their slogan: “Milano, a place to be.” Discussions are slated to occur in the Sala Alessi at Palazzo Marino (Piazza della Scala, 2) on the indicated evenings below.
