Concierge.com's insider take:
Not merely a fashion genius, Miuccia Prada is an inventive patron of the arts. Her contemporary-art foundation, housed in a former bank archive in the eastern suburbs, is involved in a range of projects, including the restoration of neglected cinema classics, but its main activity is the organization of two major shows each year (spring and fall) dedicated to cutting-edge contemporary artists. The space is only open when exhibitions are on view; check the Web site for dates.
Open Tuesday through Sunday during exhibitions, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
