The seven huge towers devised and mounted at the Hangar Bicocca in 2004 by German artist Anselm Kiefer
are now - starting from late September 2015 - accompanied by five new
by the same artist. The imposing ex-industrial structure, renovated by Milanese architect Vittorio Gregotti for the Milanese tyre manufacturer Pirelli (the world’s fifth-largest), unveis a world which is both sacred and profane, heavenly and cabalistic, dark and dazzling.
Beyond their magic, technically speaking the seven towers are made of reinforced concrete and lead, decorated with varying shades of color, lettering, bits of paper and other intriguing elements.
The Hangar always hosts more exhibitions
