In a city obsessed with fashion, it’s no surprise that clothes are not just sold in upscale boutiques and showrooms but are also displayed in galleries (in fact, you could argue that there’s not much of a difference between the two). One such place is Armani Silos, Giorgio Armani’s own museum that opened in 2015. Around 600 of his fashion designs made over the last 40 years are on view. Located in the fashionable Tortona neighborhood, the museum is housed in an old granary built by Nestlé in 1950. Spread out over four floors and encompassing a total of 4,500 square meters, the museum also includes a café and digital archive, which illuminates Armani’s professional experience and his unique fashion know-how.
Time Out tip: If you’re still on a museum kick after exiting Armani Silos, visit the nearby Mudec (Museo delle Culture). The zinc-clad building houses objects from all over the world.
