N TOUR - Design, Artists, Made in Italy, the latest event taking place in Lombardy from October 22-24, 2021, is here to promote local tourism. It will allow one to uncover the region’s rich cultural heritage, which includes design locations, artists’ archives and company museums.
The project, created by the MuseoCity Association in collaboration with Circuito Lombardo Musei Design, AITART and Museimpresa, provides a weekend full of events. The program includes various cities and towns in Lombardy and will open the doors of a good 38 (often unknown) public and private institutions.
There are museums, archives, studios and home museums which have witnessed the birth of design. IN TOUR will allow us to touch artists’ archives with our hand and offer us artistic and historical anecdotes in a program which includes coordinated openings, guided tours, online information, exhibitions, conferences and special events.
It is an occasion which can’t be missed as we will be able to explore new locations in Lombardy, get to know a part of the territory’s cultural fabric, and be enriched by personal stories and artistic and historical events which tell of this region’s productive and entrepreneurial history.
Standing out among the must-see openings, there is the Archivio Cassinari (open for the first time), the Galleria Riva (which will open the Boatyard and the Historical Gallery in Sarnico), the Remo Bianco Foundation (located within an industrial complex), the new location of the recently inaugurated Molteni Museum, and the Private Museum Collection of Sewing Machines and The Milan Metro. The Red Line, the largest work of social design at the Franco Albini Foundation.
The MuseoCity association has also made a series of podcasts and other cultural locations one can visit available for everyone. They can be downloaded on their site www.museocity.it (together with the complete program), on Spotify, on the museocity.it app and on Google Podcast, and will even be available after the events in order to continue promoting lesser-known places and institutions dedicated to design that creates culture.
