My Art Guide Milan 2019 is a paper and digital issue dedicated to miart and the Art Week in Milan, available online and on iOS and Android app. This new edition has been developed thanks to an incredible editorial committee formed by Edoardo Bonaspetti (Curator, Editor), Alessandro Rabottini (Artistic Director of miart), and Beatrice Trussardi (Cultural Enterpreneur and Chairperson of Fondazione Trussardi). The committee has been working to select the best and most interesting art spaces and exhibitions in town.
Edoardo Bonaspetti is co-director of Ordet, a nonprofit space for contemporary art, opening in Milan in the Spring of 2019. He is artistic director of the Henraux Foundation, editorial director for Skira and editorial manager of La Triennale di Milano. He founded the magazine Mousse in 2006, the publishing house Mousse Publishing in 2009 and the communication agency Mousse Agency in 2011, which he directed up until March 2018. From 2014 to 2018, he served as curator at the Department of Visual Arts at La Triennale di Milano. He has organised and curated shows and exhibition projects both in Italy and abroad. He also came up with Vdrome: an online artists’ film and video platform, which he curates together with Andrea Lissoni and Filipa Ramos. He has held lessons at the Brera Academy, IULM and NABA, and he also teaches on the Master in Advanced Training in Contemporary Imagery at the Fondazione Fotografia in Modena.
Alessandro Rabottini is the Artistic Director of miart since 2017, a curator and art critic. He was Chief Curator of GAMeC Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art in Bergamo from 2001 to 2012, and Curator at Large at MADRE Donnaregina Museum of Contemporary Art in Naples from 2012 to 2015, institutions for which he has curated solo shows of international artists like Mircea Cantor, Keren Cytter, Latifa Echakhch, Giuseppe Gabellone, David Maljkovic, Victor Man, Robert Overby, Walid Raad, Pietro Roccasalva, Tim Rollins & K.O.S, Sterling Ruby, Padraig Timoney, Ettore Spalletti, Tris Vonna-Michell and Jordan Wolfson.

Beatrice Trussardi has chaired the Fondazione Nicola Trussardi since 1999. In 2003 – with Massimiliano Gioni as Artistic Director – she transformed the Foundation into a nomadic museum bringing contemporary art directly into the City, inside the most unexpected places. Fondazione Nicola Trussardi reopens, restores and rediscovers historic and often inaccessible buildings, monuments, and landmarks around Milan, inviting international artists to create new and ambitious site-specific projects. Thanks to an innovative modus operandi, based on flexibility and collaboration between public and private subjects, she quickly led the Foundation to represent a unique and recognized model all over the world. Since September 2014, she is Board Member of the Comitato Fondazioni Italiane Arte Contemporanea. From 2012 to 2017, she has been Board Member of MAXXI – Museo Nazionale delle Arti del XXI Secolo in Rome. Since January 2018, she collaborates with YOOX, part of YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP, curating the Design+Art section. Beatrice Trussardi holds positions in prestigious national and international organizations, bringing to bear the experience she has acquired in both the business and the cultural world, to raise public awareness of issues like innovation, sustainability, and envisioning a different future for our planet.
