Ventura Centrale

For the first time, Ventura Projects succeeded in opening a few of the 300 square-metre spaces under the tracks of Milan's Central Station. The exhibitions were a worthy match to these vaulted-roof halls, above Maarten Baas with his whispering loudspeaker installation, and a blue submarine providing the most delicious street food you could imagine. Margriet Vollenburg, founder of Ventura Projects, was present with Alessandro Mendini (below).
