Events at Bagatti Valsecchi Museum for Museum of Innocence exhibition
The Museum of Innocence of Orhan Pamuk, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, has arrived at the Bagatti Valsecchi Museum with an international exhibit that brings from Istanbul to Milan the celebrated love story of Kemal and Füsun, protagonists of the novel of the same name published in Italy by Einaudi. From January 19 to June 24, 2018, twenty-nine cases from Istanbul are displayed in the historic house museum in via Gesù. This temporary exhibition is the ideal opportunity to realize special events, such as exclusive guided tours and private cocktails.
Conceived in close collaboration with the Innocence Foundation and Orhan Pamuk, Milan’s exhibit Love, Museums, Inspiration. The Museum of Innocence of Orhan Pamuk (curated by Lucia Pini and Laura Lombardi) was designed by Lissoni Associates and was born of the collaboration between the Bagatti Valsecchi Museum and the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera, with the support of the Region of Lombardy.
The images and objects therein vividly evoke the story of the two protagonists and the heady atmosphere of Istanbul of the 1970s and 1980s. The cases dialogue with the warm ambiances of the museum, a place loved and frequented by the selfsame Kemal in the novel, The Museum of Innocence, of which he is a protagonist.
Special events may take place in the elegant rooms during the museum’s during the morning until 1 pm and after 5:45 pm. On Mondays, since the museum is closed to the public, the spaces are available the entire day. Various spaces inside the museum are available for special events: the Grand Salon with its coffered ceiling and big fireplace, the Dining Room, the Studio and the contiguous semi-covered Terrace, which can be set for cocktails or refreshments.
