There is one place in Milan where drawings appear to be at home. In the bright building of Spazio WOW in viale Campania all comic heroes are welcomed.
I usually stop by here when I am seeking inspiration and want get in a good mood. The first stop is always the library on the first floor. In the roomy space comic lovers will be amazed. Among the exponents you could notice comic strips from the 1960s and 1970s until today. Anyone could have a look or read a piece spending as much time there as they want.
The second floor is saved for temporary exhibitions. The large windows, the high ceilings and the industrial elements remind me that this building used to be a sugar factory in the past.
The outdoor part of Spazio WOW is also turned into a piece of art. The Dream terrace, accessible from the courtyard is also beautifully decorated with drawings of young Milanese street artists. My favourite one is the image of Mother Nature, overlooking the yard, created by Nais.
Until the end of January, visitors can enjoy two wonderful exhibitions dedicated to the La leggenda di Tex and to Beethoven. If you speak Italian, book presentation events during the week could be a good way to spend a cold evening in December.
