Part of the project includes also this brand new museum of Contemporary Arts designed by Mr. Libesking realized especially and exclusively for Milan, “the best city for architecture”.
The structure is inspired by Leonardo Da Vinci and his theory of balance and will bound together a circle and a square but incorporating modern elements such as a suspended garden and thermal baths.
At the press conference there were also Letizia Moratti, major of Milan, and Vittorio Sgarbi, responsible of cultural events for the city of Milan, who has been already promoting some of the most shocking art exhibitions Milan has ever had.
