MUDEC -MUSEO DELLE CULTURE

PLACED IN THE HEARTH OF THE DESIGN DISTRICT, MUDEC IS THE MEETING POINT BETWEEN CULTURES AND THE COMMUNITY. THE PROJECT OF THE “CULTURES’ MUSEUM” WAS BORN IN THE 1990S WHEN THE MUNICIPALITY OF MILAN PURCHASED THE FORMER ANSALDO INDUSTRIAL AREA TO USE IT FOR CULTURAL ACTIVITIES. IN THE ARCHITECTURAL SCENARIO OF DISUSED FACTORIES, THE MUNICIPALITY OF MILAN DESIGNS A MULTIDISCIPLINARY CENTER DEDICATED TO THE DIFFERENT TESTIMONIES AND CULTURES OF THE WORLD. THE EXHIBITION AREA OF THE MUSEUM, ON THE FIRST FLOOR, DEVELOPS AROUND A LARGE COVERED CENTRAL SQUARE AND HOUSES THE SECTION DEDICATED TO THE PERMANENT COLLECTION AND THE ROOMS DEDICATED TO LARGE TEMPORARY EXHIBITIONS. THE AUDITORIUM, A THEATER DEDICATED TO PERFORMANCE AND VISUAL ARTS, COMPLETES THE SPACE. ON THE GROUND FLOOR THERE ARE A BISTROT, A DESIGN STORE, THE FORUM DELLE CULTURE HALL, AND WORKSHOP SPACES. FINALLY, THE MUDEC LAB IS A PLACE ENTIRELY DEDICATED TO CHILDREN, OFFERING GUIDED TOURS AND ENTERTAINING THEMATIC WORKSHOPS LINKED TO THE MUSEUM PATH AND THE CURRENT EXHIBITIONS. IN PERFECT DIALOGUE WITH FRIDA KAHLO’S EXHIBITION AND CONSISTENTLY WITH THE MUDEC PROJECT, THE EXHIBITION "THE ANCESTORS’ DREAM. THE ARCHEOLOGY OF MEXICO IN THE IMAGINATION OF FRIDA KAHLO" IS AN ARTICULATED STORY MADE OF MEXICAN ARCHAEOLOGICAL AND ETHNOGRAPHIC OBJECTS FROM MUDEC’S PERMANENT COLLECTION, HISTORICAL PHOTOS AND IMAGES OF WORKS BY FRIDA KAHLO, WHICH SHOW HOW THE INDIGENOUS WORLD AND THE PRE-COLUMBIAN PAST CONSTITUTED FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE ARTISTIC WORK OF THE MEXICAN ARTIST.

MUDEC IS WORTH A VISIT EVEN JUST FOR THE BEAUTY OF THE STRUCTURE, DESIGNED BY ARCHITECT DAVID CHIPPERFIELD, WHOSE STRIKING FEATURE IS THE CONTRAST BETWEEN THE CURVED LINES OF THE CENTRAL TRANSIT SPACE AND THE GEOMETRIC AND REGULAR VOLUMES OF THE INDIVIDUAL EXHIBITION ROOMS, FURTHER ACCENTUATED BY THE VARIOUS GRADATIONS OF LIGHT AND COLOR OF DIFFERENT ENVIRONMENTS. ENJOY YOUR VISIT!
