Milan: just the name of the Italian capital conjures visions of high-end fashion, classical architecture, and the quintessence of 20th-century design. It’s also home, every April, to miart, a fair where modern and contemporary art and design intersect. Once you’ve taken in the 186-gallery fair, the international city offers visitors a uniquely diverse cultural landscape that ranges from cutting-edge curating at Fondazione Prada and Pirelli HangarBicocca to the Renaissance-era Duomo. For those seeking more of what this cosmopolitan center has to offer, we’ve put together a quick guide to this spring’s must-see gallery exhibitions.
