The Atelier, sited in the via Sant’Andrea, Milan, is a location with a history: here the celebrated dressmaker Biki used to cut gowns for the “Divine” Maria Callas. The rooms, with their hight-valuted ceilings, the tall windows and the mirrors preserve the airy charm and atmosphere of glamorous era. Now this space, redecorated with contemporary pictorial highlights, is a lively lab of new research and ideas, where people of taste gather for fashion and design presentations, and contemporary artists find a venue to show their work.  The mood is the result of styles, colours and ideas intermingling with the philosophy of aesthetics.
