Masters of Light, on show from now until July 14th, is the first multi-faceted exploration of the rich story and innovative spirit of Swarovski, one of the world’s oldest and most recognisable heritage brands. Arriving in Milan, the heart of Italian fashion, the exhibition is presented across the internal salons of Palazzo Citterio, the magnificent extension of Pinacoteca di Brera — a more than perfect location to reveal the evolution of Swarovski’s artistry and savoir-faire.
