From May 30th to July 28th, 2024, Palazzo Reale will host the exhibition "Piermarini in Milan: The Drawings of Foligno", highlighting the evolution of the architect Giuseppe Piermarini, one of the leading Italian architects of the 18th century, whose neoclassical imprint can still be admired in the most significant buildings of Milan and Lombardy today.

The exhibition immerses the viewer in preparatory drawings - sourced from the Piermarini Fund established at the Library of his hometown, Foligno - a selection ranging from his early studies in Rome to his major works in Lombardy, with particular attention to Milan and Palazzo Reale, the venue of the exhibition.

In addition to drawings from the Foligno Fund, some architectural models will be displayed on loan from Palazzo Trinci in Foligno and the Museo Teatrale della Scala.

This exhibition falls within the initiatives of enhancement aimed by Palazzo Reale as a member of the ARRE network - Association des Résidences Royales Européennes, which brings together approximately thirty royal residences in Europe.
