Milan 22 January 2019 – Fondazione Fiera Milano has also confirmed its support for Miart 2019 through its own acquisition fund. An initiative which is inspired by the Foundation’s role in many areas including culture; the Foundation is a key player in the development of the local area and the trade fair system.

Within this perspective, at Gallerie d’Italia in Piazza Scala in Milan, Fondazione Fiera Milano is organising an exhibition of a selection of artworks taken from its own collection. The works will be displayed from mid-March to mid-May. The entire collection is kept in our historic site at the Palazzina degli Orafi in Largo Domodossola, and can be viewed in a dedicated section of the website at www.fondazionefieramilano.it

The Foundation’s commitment to Miart is a further acknowledgement of the fact that the fair has become one of the key international events for the sector: an international Fair of modern and contemporary art which also represents a strong draw for Milan.
