Brera Property – Ongoing
In the heart of Milan, facing the Brera Fine Arts Academy, the new W Hotel is another case in which art is the characteristic feature of the spaces. A giant reproduction of Hayez’s The Kiss crosses all the levels, imposing its range of colours on the entire facility. The painting’s influence is not only chromatic, but also extends to the classical tone found in all the areas: the communal spaces are crossed by a wing of postmodern arcades. In the rooms, the frame obsessively determines the spaces, vividly displaying citations from Futurist works on display in the Pinacoteca on the other side of the street.
