Who lives in Milan, from the beginning of the year is experiencing magical sensations related to the world of art and beauty. The main protagonist is the Brera district with the grandiose project which concerns it. Works began in January when, 100 days of his appointment, the new General Director of the Pinacoteca di Brera and the Library Braidense James M. Bradburne unveiled its three-year project for the revitalization of the entire complex that gathers the most important masterpieces of ' Italian art.
"My goal is to ensure that the Milanese Brera come back to fall in love with. If Milan embraces his Brera, the world follows her," he said. He added: "The Brera mission must be to preserve its collection, making an integral part of contemporary life, at the service of the widest possible range of users of all ages, nationalities and ethnicities. The works will be used to
sharpen the criticism and perception,
increase the visual intelligence.
We must not trivialize the culture, but to make the public aware of today that Mantegna, Caravaggio, Raphael were perfectly contemporary artists, in the most radical sense. In the words of Nelson Goodman "we are institutions to prevent blindness." He concluded by explaining his idea: "The idea is to create a" great brera "that is not a real estate transaction but a vision citizen, active cultural weapon, a place where you go to feed their knowledge problems".
