Milan and its galleries!
During half-term, nine students and two teachers spent four days in Milan on a combined Art and MFL trip. The group visited at least nine different art galleries that included installations by Anselm Keifer and Lucio Fontana and exhibitions of Toulouse-Lautrec and Frida Kahlo, among others. They viewed the Armani-Silos clothing exhibition, saw exhibitions in the Fondazione Prada and glimpsed the café designed by Wes Anderson. Their cultural experience was complemented by nine hours of Italian lessons, a lesson in pizza-making, shopping and eating a lot of ‘gelato’! They also experienced a walk on the roof of the world famous cathedral.
