Through Mazzini 20, get ready to enter the Bianconiglio den in Milan, as the Rabbit Hole is a bar inspired by Alice in Wonderland where everything from furniture to menus is themed. Lewis Carroll’s famous story was used as a reference to create fantastic settings and a humorous atmosphere that will captivate but not only Alice in Wonderland fans. The chairs in the rabbit hole are shaped like a card symbol, the walls are constantly spinning, the tea house is like a mad hatter, and a huge cat is smiling at the wall. Reservations not available.

Exhibition by David Lachapel

Going to the museum is always a great way to spend your leisure time in the rain outside. He recently opened the “David Lachapel” exhibition at MUDEC in Milan. I believe in miracles. “The exhibition is an unprecedented preview of David Lachapel’s work, spanning a very long period of time from his first work to the final stages of his production. And the music star system, David Lachapel’s favorite theme, even goes so far as to reflect on nature’s weaknesses.

Current of Fondazione Prada

The cultural center of Fondazione Prada is so huge and complex that it can take a whole day to explore. It is a complex of buildings renovated and / or designed by architect Rem Culhas and his architectural studio, launched by the Prada Foundation, to create one of the most fascinating architectural and artistic expressions in the world. Exhibition “Useless body?” The largest, created by Michael Elmgreen and Inger Dragset, by Fundagion Prada, reflects the human condition in society. And for a greedy but design break we suggest stopping inside the Bar Louise, the museum complex, designed by director Wes Anderson in his typical retro style or, for those who stay still until sunset, the view of the restaurant Terrace della Tor is breathtaking. .
