This third edition of the exhibition explores the theme LINKING MINDS.
Following this concept the courtyard of the Palazzo, the heart of the event, will be interpreted this year by Diller Scofidio + Renfro, the New York-based interdisciplinary design studio that works at the intersection of architecture, visual and performing arts.
For the first time, both courtyards will be connected to a single exhibition, from the main courtyard – where the installation of Diller Scofidio + Renfro will be held – to the Clock’s courtyard creating a unique path to the Litta Theater, the most ancient and still open theatre in the city.
For whole week (4-9 April) Palazzo Litta will, therefore, be enriched by the spaces of the Theatre, the Foyer, the café-restaurant and from the Clock’s courtyard outdoor areas - doubling the surface of the exhibition.
Held in the Theatre the renewed collaboration with Michele De Lucchi, Andrea Branzi and Francesca Balena Arista - for the third year in a row - will investigate the theme of ‘The Aesthetics of Drama’ in the contemporary world.
BISTROT LITTA VENTIQUATTRO - Elisa Ossino Studio signs the interior design of Palazzo Litta’s bar: what is today the meeting point of a patrician and historical residence has been re-imagined in a contemporary and informal way.
