On the recommendation of a friend, one of our last fun trips with Mom on this “Mother-Daughter Trip of 2019” was a day trip to Vigevano from Milan, known as the “Ideal Town”; home of a modern-day “Museum of Shoes” and boasting a beautiful piazza and castle.

We enjoyed our first 2019 visitor from the States in February, with one week to explore and show her northern Italy. With the visit coinciding with Kevin’s winter school break, we put on our running shoes (and for La Scala, our fancy shoes!), and spared no time to show our friend all we could of the area we now call home!
So much to say, so little space! If you love art, history, religion, Napoleon, or beauty, you simply must visit this museum in the Brera district of Milan when you come here!
Although most people probably think first of the Renaissance period when considering what era of art and artists to enjoy while in Milan, it should come as no surprise that the fashion and design capital of Italy also hosts a modern art museum that is very interesting both from a spatial perspective and in terms of the permanent and temporary exhibits it shows. It is called the Fondazione Prada.
