Nuovecento Museum

IMG_7996In the center of Milan stands the Nuovecento Museum. The tall blue windows enable the visitors to view the Duomo and surrounding piazza. Specializing in 20th century Italian art, the Nuovcento showcases artists such as Mario Merz, Gino Marotta and Lucio Fontana. These are some of my favorite works from the permanent collection.
