Pictures from Milan Part 3

After part 1 City Center and part 2 Modern Architecture, here is part 3 with the remaining pictures from last week’s trip to Milan.

Pirelli HangarBicocca

HangarBicocca is an old factory that a few years back was transformed into an impressive exhibition space. It features a permanent installation by Anselm Kiefer called The Seven Heavenly Palaces.

These pictures really don’t do it justice. It’s just so impressive to be standing in a huge darkened hangar amid these 14-18m high houses. Interestingly, the paintings work both from afar, when you can take them in as a whole, as well as from up close, when they reveal a totally different layer of detail.

Central Station

Despite the massive size of Milan’s Central Station, a lot of attention was paid to getting the details right as well.
