This past week the MA program visited the Gucci Museum with their very own private tour of Guccio Gucci’s empire! Why tour this museum? Well, of course we had to go drool over the original Jackie bags, the GG suitcases and the famous white GG bicycle. Through exposing the MA students to this contemporary museum located in the historic Palazzo della Mercanzia, we got a glimpse of how the space was utilized as well as how inviting and informative the museum is.
Our tour guide was by far the BEST one the MA students have seen. She translated everything from Italian to English and connected with everyone!
Tour the Gucci Museum and afterwards relax in their cafe and sip an amazing cappuccino or visit their curated selection of contemporary and vintage works in the bookstore.
Entrance fee: 6 euro
Ciao ragazzi, ci vediamo presto!
