Turin might be hogging a lot of Italian attention this week since Artissima, the country’s most important art fair, opens tomorrow by bringing together an international selection of nearly 200 galleries. But if you can’t make it over there and are in another part of Italy, fear not: Milan is chock full of art to see. With exhibitions ranging from classic to contemporary, you won’t develop any FOMO. We’ve also included a couple auction sales coming up, which you can use as a chance to either gawk at the art during previews, or pull the trigger and bid on some exciting new duds. Either way, we’ve got you covered. Dress for style over comfort and hit the gallery circuit—this is Milan.
