A new initiative entitled ‘Together for Culture‘, promoted by PwC Italia and the Accademia Carrara of Bergamo, will take place in winter at the PwC Tower in the CityLife District. PwC Italia, an organisation operating in the field of professional audit, strategic, legal and tax consultancy services, and Accademia Carrara, an important Italian art museum, announced in June 2022 an initial schedule of appointments under the banner of art and architecture.

Between November and December, for two consecutive weekends, architecture and art will enter into dialogue with each other and with the city: on the occasion of the closure of the Bergamasque museum for refurbishment, in fact, one of the museum’s masterpieces will be exhibited ‘at high altitude’ in the tower designed by Daniel Libeskind, offering the public the opportunity to climb up to the 27th floor free of charge, with a breathtaking view.

The visit to the PwC Tower will also be an opportunity to deepen the features of the architectural work that develops for 175 metres and hosts 31 floors, of which 28-way, for more than 33,500 sq.m. of total surface area. At the top is the characteristic “crown”, the large veiling volume of 40 metres above all the spherical pattern of the whole architectural concept, also inspired by the Renaissance dome of Brunelleschi. Known as the “Curvo” for its shape that develops vertically as a prism, the Tower is part of a sphere that envelops in an ideal embrace the Tre Torri Square, the largest pedestrian area in Milan, and one of the largest in Europe.

In the run-up to the autumn, PwC Italia is already exhibiting 25 works in digital format inside dynamic Carrara marble and LED sculptures designed by architect Libeskind. These include some of the collection’s iconic works such as Raphael’s “Saint Sebastian” as well as masterpieces by Giovanni Bellini, Titian, Lorenzo Lotto, Sofonisba Anguissola, Giovan Battista Moroni and Giuseppe Pelizza da Volpedo. The sculptures are in line with the very concept of the PwC Tower, a slightly inclined building to create which the architect was inspired by the lines of “Pietà Rondanini“, the only sculptural work of Michelangelo guarded in Milan.

PwC Italia, thanks to an important collaboration agreement (April 2022), is actively contributing to the life of the Carrara Academy in Bergamo, in view of the year of Bergamo-Brescia Italian Capital of Culture 2023. As a co-founding partner of the museum, it is in fact supporting the creation of the Gardens around the Carrara Academy, which are currently closed to the public and will be inaugurated in June 2023.
