I Bohémien features one of Milan’s most fascinating pieces of history: the story of Brera and the young artists who lived there in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
The writing work started with historical research, the city archives and the reconstruction of early 20th century Milan and the places dear to the artists of the time. It is not an audio guide but a podcast, halfway between radio drama and documentary research, which reveals to the visitor, the spectator, the curious patron, a now vanished and unseen world experienced by the artists who began to frequent Casa degli Artisti, built in 1909, and Brera, helping to build the reputation of the artistic quarter that still survives today.
I Bohémien is the first chapter, which we present as a preview, of a narrative of Milan’s history through the artists’ twentieth century.
Working on the podcast are students and ex-students of the Brera Academy of Fine Arts; playwright Luca Scarlini; sound designer Luca De Marinis.
The podcast will be available as a preview only on 18 and 19 December 2021
