Slowly but surely, the world is awakening from the closures that the Coronavirus have imposed on us. Armani/Silos is the latest one to reopen in Milan.
Just three months ago, Italy was one of the European countries hit hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic. But with proper measures in place, we see that the country and its cities are slowly emerging from the devastation, with tourist destinations reopening and even museums.
Joining the good news is the reopening of the Armani/Silos exhibition space in Milan. Armani/Silos will be open on weekends from 11 am to 7 pm. Complying with the new normal standard, visitors will need to make a reservation to visit the exhibition space and with an advanced purchase of a ticket that can be made by calling +39 02 91630010 or via the website.
The exhibition space and bookshop will also comply with precautionary measures that the local government has inforced — social distancing of at least one-metre and obligatory use of face masks for both visitors and masks. Guided tours and access to the cafeteria are temporarily suspended.
In lieu of its reopening, Armani also announced that the exhibition ‘Heimat. A Sense of Belonging’ has been extended until January 10th 2021. The exhibition that opened in February this year was initially supposed to last till August 2nd 2020 and coincide with Milan Fashion Week. Due to the pandemic, however, both were cancelled, hence the extension announcement.
‘Heimat. A Sense of Belonging’ is in fact, dedicated to the work of celebrated German photographer Peter Lindbergh. The exhibition will feature an expansive collection of Lindbergh’s works, both published and unpublished.
