If you still haven’t visited the “Mysterious Baths” yet, then you must go! The space, retraining of the former swimming centre Caimi, renamed “Bagni misteriosi”, closes on January 28th!
This space became an enchanting “winter story”, being situated behind Porta Romana, one of the six principal Roman doors in Milan, also defined “the Imperial Door” because it constituted the principal access to Milan, where departed the road that brought to the Ancient Rome, and still characterized by the 1596 monumental arc wanted by Phillip III of Spain.
Under the Artistic Direction of Andrée Ruth Shammah, the place is refined in every detail, from the harmony of colors to the choice of the materials, murales and sound design included, and it came to life on December 7 with the transformation of the swimming pool in an open Patinoire, with a magic atmosphere, also recreated through laboratories, art and theater shows that contribute to strengthen the enchantment. A project not easy to be realized but it turned into a beautiful gift to the whole city, thanks to private and public contributions. Up to the end of January laboratories of art and magic are still available, open to the public. Don't lose this experience of Rebirth!
