Fondazione Prada opens Osservatorio, a new gallery focused on photography in Milan

On December 21, 2016, the Prada Foundation opens Osservatorio, a new exhibition space located in the iconic Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II in Milan.
“Osservatorio” is a venue focused on the newest expressions in contemporary photography and its connection with other art disciplines and creative forms of expression.
Housed at the Galleria’s fifth and sixth floors, “Osservatorio” is located just above the so-called octagon, near the glass and iron dome which tops the building designed by architect Giuseppe Mengoni between 1865 and 1867.
The gallery’s spaces, which were rebuilt after being badly damaged in 1943 by the bombing of Milan and have been now totally restored, encompasses a total floor area of 800 square meters / 8,600 square feet.
