At Foscarini Spazio Brera, an installation by Giovanni Maria Filindeu takes visitors through an intimate, evocative exhibition exploring the many forms of light. The façade gardening installation and exhibition about façades designed by Piuarch is in Via Palermo no.5 and, for recharging oneself and one’s electronic devices, the RE:CHARGE Café by Humanscale is a green oasis in all senses created by designer Todd Bracher.
