Milan, 23 March 2023
A train journey to Milan to visit the Helmut Newton: Legacy exhibition, a retrospective marking the one hundred year anniversary of the artist’s birth, to be held at the Royal Palace from 24 March to 25 June. The exhibition aims to take a fresh look at the uniqueness, the style, and the provocative side of the artist’s work, highlighting its lesser-known aspects, with a particular focus on his most unconventional fashion photography.
To mark the event, FS Group and Trenitalia, the leader of its Passenger Hub, will be offering special discounts for those travelling to the Lombard capital to visit the exhibition. In fact, travellers in possession of Frecce, Intercity, and Intercity Notte train tickets to Milan (bearing dates up to three days prior to that upon which the exhibition is visited) will be able to purchase two tickets for admission to the exhibition for the price of one.
Special discounts will also be available for Frecce passengers travelling alone with tickets to Milan (bearing dates up to three days prior to that upon which the exhibition is visited); for Intercity passengers travelling alone; for holders of one-way tickets valid for the date of admission to the exhibition; and for monthly and annual season-ticket holders with a Trenitalia supra-regional rate valid for travel to Milan.
The exhibition will feature approximately 250 works, many of which have never been exhibited before. Polaroids and contact sheets will also provide insight into the creative process for several of the iconic motifs featured. Special publications, period magazines, and archival materials will also help provide a better understanding of the context that gave rise to this extraordinary artist’s inspiration.
By supporting the Helmut Newton: Legacy exhibition at Palazzo Reale, FS Group reaffirms its commitment to major Italian and international cultural events, promoting the mobility of visitors and enthusiasts with frequent, sustainable, and wide-reaching regional and nationwide connections. It's a calling that comes naturally to a company that, for over a century, has been firmly rooted within the artistic, tourism, civil, and economic fabric of Italy.
