This Week!
In order to fight any further diffusion of COVID-19, people are advised to be very cautious when meeting others, even outdoor. A distance of a meter or so must be kept - and a face mask (better if surgical) worn - in case of any personal encounters.
.:. Milan and Lombardy are still at risk, though bars, restaurants, shops and even museums began reopening from June 3. Schools started again on September 14. Finger crossed.

no slideshow .:. Puppets, acrobats, ventriloquists, dwarfs and ballerinas populate architectonical and sculptural spaces devised by Juan Muñoz (Madrid, 1953-2001).
.:. Human figures made of papier maché, resin and bronze also inhabited Double Bind, the monumental sculpture that Muñoz installed in the Turbine Hall of the Tate Modern, London, in 2001, perhaps his most celebrated work. Now Double Bind has been re-installed at the Hangar, possibly the only other exhibition hall in the world that is large enough to accomodate it.
.:. Further on while walking through the exhibition, grey figures slightly smaller then real people - most of them disquietingly smiling - communicate anonimity, ambiguity and contradictions. Clearly, this is the message that one of the leading European sculptors of the late 20th century wanted to leave.
