Museums that can be visited with just one click

Giulia Guido · 4 years ago · Art

Alas, the time has come for everyone to do their part. All of us have to make sacrifices and stay at home as much as possible. For some it will be easier and for others less. 

We are here to offer you activities to do from the comfort of your rooms and in total safety, and being a magazine that deals with art, we could not start with anything else but museums. We know, in this period they are closed, but fortunately for us, and for you, there is more than one way to visit them. 

Here are some of the museums, Italian and not, which can be visited comfortably with a click. 


Pinacoteca di Brera

If your passion is painting, then you can’t miss the virtual visit of the Brera Art Gallery, starting from the famous courtyard and arriving to the famous Dead Christ by Mantegna.

Museo Poldi Pezzoli

Just a stone’s throw away, or rather a click away, you can find yourself inside one of the most famous and beautiful museum-houses in Milan which acts as a treasure chest for the collection born in the mid-1800s thanks to Gian Giacomo Poldi Pezzoli’s passion for art. 

Museo del Novecento

If you are interested in the art of the last century, then the virtual tour of the Museum of the Twentieth Century could be for you. Among the works of Boccioni and Fontana we are sure that an entire afternoon will fly by in the blink of an eye. 


Uffizi Gallery

For once you can enter the Uffizi without making its famous and endless queue, you can also stop in front of your favorite works as long as you want, no one will tell you to move quickly to the next room. 

Santa Maria del Fiore

After all these paintings maybe it’s time to take a break, and what better place than under the majesty of Brunelleschi’s masterpiece?!


Doge’s Palace

Even if the Carnival is over, it’s always the right time to drop by Venice. A must for every tourist is the Doge’s Palace, from where you can admire all the splendor of St. Mark’s Square. 

Ca’ Rezzonico

Close your eyes, imagine you are on a boat and voilà, here we are at Ca’ Rezzonico, ready to immerse ourselves in the furnishings, paintings and sculptures of the Venetian 18th century. Don’t forget to look out your windows and contemplate the Grand Canal. 


Vatican Museums

Our tour continues in Rome, more precisely in the Vatican. This time make yourselves comfortable, because the visit to the Vatican Museums could last a while. 

Capitoline Museums 

With an exhibition area of 12,977 m², the Capitoline Museums are a must-see, or rather a place to see over and over again. 


Musée du Louvre 

Our journey has no boundaries, so here we are in the most famous museum in the world. Finding the right angle to see the Mona Lisa has never been easier.

Musée d’Orsay

If your passion is Impressionism, then you’d better take a jump on the other side of the Seine and get lost in the halls of the Musée d’Orsay, between Monet, Van Gogh and Degas. 

Musée de l’Orangerie

The Musée d’Orsay wasn’t enough for you?! Then take a little more time for the magnificent Musée de l’Orangerie and let yourself be enveloped by Monet’s Water Lilies.  

Tour Eiffel 

A key stop on any trip to Paris is the Eiffel Tower. Every opportunity is good to return, climb and enjoy the city from above. 


National Gallery of Art 

Another click, another country. The only stop in the English capital that we would like to point out is the one at the National Gallery of Art. There is no Coronavirus or Brexit to hold, the forces of art break down all barriers. 


Dalí theatre museum

Hoping to find a warmer climate we move to Spain, more precisely to Figueres in Catalonia. Here let yourself be transported inside one of the most brilliant minds of the last century, that of Salvador Dalí. 



From hot Spanish to cold Dutch, but for good reason. Take your time to admire both the architecture of the Rijksmuseum and its works, including Rembrandt’s Night Watch. 

Van Gogh Museum 

We stay in town to discover the works of one of the greatest artists in the history of art. The Van Gogh Museum offers a unique itinerary to discover the works of the artist, but also the life of the man behind them. 

Anne Frank House 

We leave the museums to enter an emblematic place where time has stood still. Almost always impossible to visit due to the large number of reservations, technology takes us directly inside the Anne Frank House. 
PS Given the amount of free time available, for those who pretended to read it at school, The Diary of Anne Frank is a book that should be dusted off from time to time. 

New York

Metropolitan Museum 

Among the various museums that await us overseas we can not postpone a visit to the Metropolitan Museum. Among the vast collection of the New York museum is impossible not to find something that attracts us. 

Guggenheim Museum 

Let’s stay in the Big Apple but change genres. At 1071 Fifth Avenue, the Guggenheim Museum’s magnificent collection awaits us. Take advantage of it to discover the beauty of Frank Lloyd Wright’s architecture. 


Smithsonian American Art Museum

This stage will probably take you more than a day, in fact the Smithsonian American Art Museum is famous for being one of the most inclusive and extensive art collections in the world. Have fun wandering around its large pavilions, a bit like Ben Stiller in A Night at Museum 2. 

The White House

Once we get to Washington, why not pay Trump a visit? 

Our tour ends here, but there are still dozens and dozens of museums that you can visit with just one click and you can find them all on the Google Arts & Culture section. 

We hope that this virtual journey has made you want to visit them, or revisit them, live all these places, hoping that this can happen as soon as possible.

A book with unpublished photos of 2Pac has just been released

A book with unpublished photos of 2Pac has just been released Contributors · 1 week ago · Photography

“Tupac The Legend” is a forty-page volume containing a unique collection of images taken by Michel Haddi during a photo shoot in 1993 with 2Pac. The book, signed and numbered out of 500 copies, was released on September 13th and also revisits some of the rapper’s thoughts. What sets this book apart is the inclusion of quotes from Tupac himself, providing a deeper understanding of the artist’s thoughts and personality. «I am thrilled to present this limited edition book: ‘Tupac The Legend,’ featuring many previously unreleased images,» enthusiastically declares Micheal Haddi.

Haddi’s personal connection with Tupac adds a special layer to the book’s narrative. During their encounter, Haddi was inspired to portray Tupac in attire reminiscent of Martin Luther King Jr., a vision the rapper decided to embrace, and the result of which is reflected in the book.

Micheal Haddi’s own story is fascinating as well, from a turbulent childhood in Paris to collaborations with iconic figures in the fashion industry. His story is as compelling as his photography. In conclusion, “Tupac The Legend” aims to be a heartfelt visual tribute to the legacy of Tupac Shakur. This limited edition coffee table book, with its unpublished images and personal anecdotes, promises to be a valuable addition to the collections of fans and portrait enthusiasts of the rapper.

“Beyond Fashion” is the solo exhibition that will open on October 19, 2023, and will run until March 16, 2024 in Milan, at the29 Arts in Progress Gallery Milan.

Rhythmic and melancholic dance in Nanda Hagenaars’ shots

Rhythmic and melancholic dance in Nanda Hagenaars’ shots Contributors · 5 days ago · Photography

Life, like a river, flows with its own rhythm, carrying us on a journey filled with both tranquility and turbulence,” explains photographer Nanda Hagenaars. “In moments of calm, we are embraced by the gentle currents, as if floating effortlessly through the passage of time. It is during these moments that we find solace, and our spirits are uplifted by the serenity of the waters. However, calm waters can transform into turbulent torrents, unsettling our footing and leaving us questioning our purpose.”

With these words, Nanda Hagenaars (1988) provides us with a glimpse into her perspective on life, offering insights to understand her photographs. Hagenaars captures these ebb and flow of life through her lens. Her work can be described as poetic, intuitive, and emotional, driven by the desire to translate her feelings and emotions into images. The concept of time and timelessness has led Nanda to focus on black and white photography, a choice that adds depth and timelessness to her art.

Connection Skins

For Nanda, the camera is more than just a simple tool; it’s a symbol of transformation. It has helped her see life in new ways, much like looking through her lens has shown her fresh perspectives. She believes in using photography as a means to grow and discover herself. “It’s not always easy to see things differently, but I make an effort to do so,” she says. This philosophy is reflected in her practice. She doesn’t just see the water; she also sees its reflection. This way of seeing extends to everything she captures, always in search of new compositions, eager to unveil hidden beauty. Nanda plays with light and shadow, creating a dance that is both rhythmic and melancholic.

«Just as the river carves its path through the landscape, so do the challenges we face shape us. The trials and tribulations, the moments of uncertainty and doubt, they all contribute to our personal evolution. They teach us resilience, patience, and the art of adaptation. We learn that life’s true beauty lies not in the absence of obstacles but in our ability to overcome them. And as we continue along our journey, we learn to trust the flow of life, knowing that, just like the river, we are forever evolving, forever moving forward.»

In Nanda Hagenaars’ world, each photograph is a reflection of this philosophy. With her lens as a guide, she invites us to join her in exploring the intricate twists and turns of the river of life, finding meaning and beauty in every shot.

Nanda Hagenaars will present one of her shots at the Photography exhibition at the Matalon Foundation in Milan from Sept. 22-24, 2023.

Motherhood captured by Wendy Symons

Motherhood captured by Wendy Symons Contributors · 4 days ago · Photography

Wendy Symons, a self-taught Dutch photographer, embarks on a profound journey through her lens, capturing intimate moments of motherhood without any filter. Wendy Symons possesses a remarkable ability to perceive the beauty in everyday moments, those small and delicate details often overlooked by the frantic pace of life. Her photography is a heartfelt exploration of the human experience at every stage of life. However, it’s the early motherhood experience that holds a special place in Wendy’s heart. She approaches it with an honest and intimate lens, revealing the profound bond between a mother and her child.

Inspiration flows to Wendy directly from nature itself. The healing power of the natural world influences her work and often becomes the muse for her next shoot. Through her lens, Wendy finds solace and inspiration, effortlessly merging the worlds of art and motherhood. Wendy Symons’ style is a testament to authenticity and the raw essence of life. She relies exclusively on natural light to capture genuine moments in their full splendour. This choice infuses her work with a warmth and truthfulness that makes each photograph an unfiltered window into the lives she documents.

One of Wendy’s extraordinary projects is Art Mama, in which she merges her two worlds, the artistic and the maternal. In the midst of the pandemic, she embarked on this introspective journey, diving into her life as a mother and artist. Wendy’s photo diary paints an intimate portrait of her children and herself as they deal with the complexities of motherhood during turbulent times. Her images are a reminder that the journey of motherhood, although unpredictable and chaotic, is a shared experience that unites us all.

Wendy Symons will present one of her shots at the Photography exhibition at the Matalon Foundation in Milan from Sept. 22-24, 2023.

Valentina Sergi has a clear idea of what eternal love is

Valentina Sergi has a clear idea of what eternal love is Contributors · 3 days ago · Photography

Valentina Sergi (1997) is a fashion photographer with a passion for pastel colors, bold contrasts, and the vibrancy of images. Her professional work has led her to photograph a variety of subjects in exclusive locations, and her photographs have become a constant presence in many well-known fashion publications. However, what truly sets Valentina Sergi apart is her ability to craft an emotionally compelling narrative through the lens of her camera. Colors, the interplay of light and shadows, patterns, people’s hands, the warmth of an embrace, places steeped in nostalgia, and the hidden stories behind a wrinkle are all elements that Valentina Sergi seeks to capture in order to create a pure aesthetic composed of images that oscillate between the real and the surreal.

The A-Mors Series: A Deep Exploration of Love

One of Valentina Sergi’s most significant projects is the series titled A-Mors. This series delves into the theme of love in a profound and provocative manner. It revolves around genuine love, a love that has been eagerly anticipated, yet so strong that it overcomes the fragility of a tender heart. The intriguing wordplay in the title, where “A-Mors” appears to derive from the Latin “a-mors” (without death), underscores the eternity of this sentiment. In this series, Valentina Sergi explores the concept of an eternal love that transcends temporal boundaries. Her photographs capture moments of passion and affection, while simultaneously evoking a sense of transcendence.

Sergi’s works are emotional and surreal, with a strong conceptual underpinning. Valentina understands that photography is not merely the recording of an objective reality, but rather the presentation of stories, concepts, and worlds as she perceives them through her personal experiences, culture, and sensibilities.

Her connection between cinema and photography is evident, and this cross-pollination of the arts allows her to bring innovation to her work. The photographer leaves us with a famous quote by Vincent Peters, who states, “A photograph is not just made with a camera; it is brought to the act of photography with all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.

Valentina Sergi will present one of her shots at the Photography exhibition at the Matalon Foundation in Milan from Sept. 22-24, 2023.
