February will be a month full of interesting events for art and culture enthusiasts in Milan. We’ll highlight some unmissable appointments.

On the artistic front, the exhibition on Arrigo Arrighetti at the Polytechnic is certainly worth a visit, presenting a retrospective of the Milanese architect through original projects and archival materials. For photography lovers, the exhibition on Juergen Teller at the Triennale, with over 1,000 shots of the famous German photographer, is a must-see.

For those interested in the world of design and local craftsmanship, the Bagatti Valsecchi Museum will host an exhibition dedicated to the archive of Pier Fausto Bagatti Valsecchi on landscape architecture and gardens. Officine Saffi is open for registration for new ceramic workshops.

Among the special events this month, I would point out the Art City White Night that will liven up museums and exhibition spaces until late at night. And the new edition of Photofestival, with installations and photographic exhibitions throughout the city.
