Things to do in Milan from 15th to 17th December
Christmas is almost upon us and Milan has been decorated with lights, Christmas trees and markets. The city is full of events organized in anticipation of the Christmas holidays to take a break between the purchase of a gift and another. Below we will give you some suggestions on things to do in Milan during the weekend a few steps from Piazza Duomo and the majestic tree that was set up for the occasion.
BILL VIOLA AT THE CRYPT OF SAN SEPOLCRO
The exhibition of the American artist Bill Viola continues at the Crypt of San Sepolcro with his video installations. His works, video footage or multimedia video installations focusing on the allegorical representation of life cycles (day and night, birth and death, etc.), converge different influences, from music to philosophy, to images taken from the mass media that transfigures in sequences of strong emotional impact, full of metaphorical meanings and often of critical accent.
