What was Milan like when Leonardo arrived there for the first time in 1483 from the Florentine court of the Medici? This demand shaped the course of the exhibition, which is developed in 12 stages, symbolic places of 15th century Milan, including the Basilica di Santa Maria delle Grazie, Palazzo Borromeo, the crypt of the church of San Sepolcro and Ca’ Granda.
A story told by the images of five young photographers who have just completed the course of stage photography and video at La Scala Academy in a dialogue with the accounts of the brilliant art historian M. Alessandra Filippi. The aim is to (re)discover with different eyes the city of Milan: with its heart is read of the bricks of its houses and blue was the multitude of watercourses it houses.
The CDI-Centro Diagnostico Italiano will again host an exhibition stemming from collaboration between Bracco Foundation and La Scala Theatre Academy, United since 2011 in a partnership in the youth project “progettoDiventerò”.
The cycle of exhibitions started in 2010 in collaboration with the CDI is renewed every year in the conviction, supported by scientific evidence, that exposure to art and culture contributes to an overall improvement in the quality of life, while a complementary objective is to develop growing talents.
