To celebrate the end of the restoration work of the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II an installation has been deployed on its surface, bringing the Milanese and international public in close contact with the heart of the Galleria and offering new points of view: pictures, videos, stories and data collected during the 13 months of renovation.
An octagon within the Octagon: on the outside, the mirrored surfaces offer a new amplified and multiple vision of the architectural and ornamental beauties of the Galleria. Indoors, a dark room of 87 square meters gives visitors an immersive experience, thanks to six led walls. Four stations equipped with benches and binoculars are an integral part of the project, inviting you to sit down and enjoy some close-up views of architectural details, transforming the Galleria into an urban landscape to explore.
The event, created and funded by Prada, Versace and Feltrinelli and design by Whisbonefarm/Michele Marchetti,
has ran continuously from May 7th May 23rd 2015.
