Welcome to the city of dynamic culture, of creative expression, of pragmatic and proactive contribution to the common good. Milan has always been an open city, because it has a natural aptitude for welcoming and is a profoundly and authentically free city. There are many artists from all over Italy and the world who, today as in the past, have found fertile ground here to develop their creativity, and many of them have stayed, electing Milan as their adopted city. Do as they do, feel at home.
July 2023 – In Autumn 2023, there are many cultural events that will mark the fall season in Milan and help make the city a must-see for art and culture enthusiasts from all over the world.
In the evocative setting of the Palazzo Reale, recently included in the circuit of the palaces of Europe, must-see exhibitions will be hosted: from the monographic exhibition of Giorgio Morandi, a painter and engraver known for his ability to emphasize “the essence of things,” to the large anthological exhibition dedicated to the Spanish Renaissance master El Greco, with special attention to his Italian period.
Equally interesting for an international audience are the exhibition of Francisco Goya, an emblematic figure of Spanish Romanticism who pioneered a revolution in painting in tune with the historical changes he experienced, and the exhibition of Italian photographer Gabriele Basilico, ten years after his death, known for his reflections on the dynamics of urban transformation.
November will see Milano Drawing Week, an annual event dedicated to contemporary drawing that will take shape in a constellation of exhibitions spread across the Milanese territory from Castello Sforzesco to the Museum of Natural History via 12 major city art galleries.
In the capital of live entertainment, there can also be no shortage of events dedicated to music. In September, not to be missed is MITO SettembreMusica, the International Music Festival that will unite the cities of Milan and Turin in a packed calendar of musical events to bring the general public closer to classical music.
JazzMi will also return in the fall with 25 days of programming: more than one hundred concerts among theaters, clubs and alternative spaces, films, exhibitions and special events to tell the story of our time through the many forms that jazz takes in every part of the world.
Milan Music Week will animate the city in November for a week of concerts, DJ sets, meetings with artists, workshops, panels and much more.
The universe of literature, with authors from all over the world, will gather in Milan in November for a new edition of Book City Milano, the event dedicated to books and reading, now a true “brand” of the city.
Visitors and citizens of Milan will witness an exceptional cultural season in which art history and contemporary creativity will merge in new and fascinating ways.
