Taking up the second floor of the 18th century Villa Reale is GAM - Milan’s impressive Gallery of Modern Art.
Napoleon once used this lovely villa as his summer home, and it now hosts several cultural institutions. After you’ve strolled through the grounds and admired the architecture, update your impression with art from the 19th century onwards.
Neoclassical artworks rub shoulders with Surrealist installations and works by Picasso, Modigliani, Kandinsky and varied Impressionists, Futurists and Vorticists. The most contemporary works are displayed next door at PAC.
The Gallery of Modern Art is north of Piazza del Duomo near Milan’s public gardens. Piazza Cavour is the nearest main square, and the Palestro metro station is just a short stroll away.
