Fondazione Prada (Prada Foundation), an institution dedicated to contemporary art and culture, has opened the doors to its new sprawling Milan headquarters. Helmed by Miuccia Prada and Patrizio Bertelli, the new 205,000-square-foot space is located in Largo Isarco, the southern part of Milan, and is made up of seven existing buildings recovered from a distillery that dates back to 1916 and three new structures. “We want to be proactive, stimulate artists and propose [an artistic] offer for the future, drawing young people closer to concepts that are often forgotten,” said Bertelli.

Currently, Fondazione Prada features the “Serial Classic” exhibit dedicated to classical sculpture; “An Introduction,” which showcases the different inspirations that led Prada and Bertelli to create Fondazione Prada; and lastly, a collection of cars reworked by various artists. There’s also pieces scattered throughout the seven buildings from the likes of Damien Hirst, David Hockney, Yves Klein, Eva Hesse and more. Rounding out the space is a Wes Anderson-designed a Milanese café.

Fondazione Prada opens to the public on May 9.
