Buckle up, Italy. MiArt is coming to Milan this week, bringing with it a variety of Modern and contemporary art, artist talks, and satellite exhibitions. Now in its 21st year, this blockbuster fair attracts 135 international galleries, including the likes of Lia Rumma, Galerie Lelong, and Robilant & Voena.

As always, whenever an art fair comes to town, there is more than enough to keep you busy all week long. But for those of you who want to venture out of the building and even out of Milan, we’ve put together a list of the must-see gallery and museum exhibitions throughout the country.

So print this handy guide and take it with you—those of stuck in a rainy New York today are plenty jealous of those you of you lucky enough to be trotting around Italy. Make the most of it for the rest of us.
