Università degli Studi di Milano (Festa del Perdono)

The Università Statale di Milano is an evergreen. In the courtyards and cloisters of this building, Interni magazine organized Human Spaces, a series of experimental and interactive installations, with architects and designers such as Ico Migliore with M + S lab, Massimo Iosa Ghini, Piero Lissoni and Fabio Novembre. The installation Help the Planet, Help the Humans by Maria Cristina Finucci, is very interesting. A Help sign composed of plastic caps lights up red in the evening and symbolizes the suffering of our planet.

Where and When: University of Milan, Via Festa Del Perdono, 7, Milan.
