There are places where the spirit finds its home, triggering inside each of us genuine affection and pure nostalgia. The State University of Milan in Via Festa del Perdono is one of them, combining the cloisters and courtyards’architectural beauty to a honorable assignment, as it welcomes the Milanese and foreign students of the humanities on a daily basis. What a wonderful harmony is the union of history, youth and knowledge in your own city! In this period contemporary art is also added to this happy marriage, as the second edition of "La Statale Arte" begins. In fact, Ca 'Granda’s “Cortile d'Onore” (“courtyard of honour”) hosts artist and designer Nanda Vigo’s “Exoteric Gate” until March 11th , 2017. The installation is composed by eight pyramids of different heights and a central cylinder, which involves the viewer in a multisensory experience, as the movement of light suggests a new space-time dimension. The project summarises the author’s research on chronotypes, which she started in the 60s.
On Thursdays and Fridays from 5.30 pm to 7.00pm it will also be possible to participate in guided tours led by students of Cultural Heritage and Art History.
Thanks Milan, for this new Rebirth chance!
