Musei Anti-Afa

The heat is not yet totally oppressive, but your mind is already wandering off to some cool, faraway location and your tired body no longer does what you want it to...so why not seek refuge in some or other intriguing museum facility?

Why not liberate your last few remaining working neurons amongst the real little gems housed at the Museo Archeologico in Corso Magenta or the even cosier, evocative Art and Science Museum in Via Quintino Sella? Otherwise, why not simply enjoy a spot of relaxation at the gardens of Villa Necchi in Via Mozart or perhaps keep your distraught little ones entertained for a while by taking them down to the Museo Fermo in Via Gluck to see the old-school movie posters or to Malpensa where they can pretend to fly at the Volandia Flight Museum and Playground? Please take note: "Because I’m feeling lazy " is not a good excuse!

Raccolto, affollato ma non polveroso, il Museo Archeologico di Milano ci emoziona sempre perchè, dai Romani alla realtà indiana, ci guida in un passato che dovremmo davvero saper frequentare con più sapienza e consapevolezza per tentare di vivere il presente con più leggerezza!

Quintino Sella n. 4 - Milano Tel 02 72022488 www.museoartescienza.com

Secluded, crowded but not dusty, the Milan Archaeological Museum always moves me because, from the Romans to Indian civilisations, it guides us through a past which we should have the understanding to visit with greater wisdom and awareness in order to lighten our experience of the present!

The Necchi family left this magnificent villa, rigorous and functional in its design,  to the Fondo Ambiente Italiano (FAI – Italian Environment Fund). Hidden in the heart of Milan and following its careful and meticulous restoration, it  offers guided tours which drop visitors directly in the life of the Necchi family, their love for music, art and fashion (the wardrobes still filled with vintage garments are strangely moving) with the rational simplicity that attracts us so much to those times.
The perfect setting for events of sober entertainment, it starred in the film by the Sicilian director Guadagnino "Io sono l'amore": the portrait of Milanese high bourgeoisie is extremely banal but the photography is certainly worth seeing!

Gluck n. 45 - Milano Tel 02 36505760 www.museofermoimmagine.it

Just the idea of the Museo del Manifesto Cinematografico (Film poster museum) is a delight in itself, but to find that it has been given life in the legendary via Gluck and, what is more, it is easy to visit, is nothing short of Wonderland!
Its locations are  housed in an ex-industrial complex, giving all the space needed for not only the never-ending collection of film posters but also to the delicate structuring of lights, audio-video productions and giant screens which, depending on the events or exhibitions being staged, enhance the experience with technical mastery, confirming them as true  devotees of the subject!
