This new approach to partnership between these two European cultural institutions highlights a shared vision of contemporary culture and artistic creation, despite their different origins, statutes, and national backgrounds.
Triennale Milano is an international cultural institution that brings together all forms of art related to contemporary culture: design, architecture, visual arts, and performing arts. It is a place where art and design, creativity and technology, tradition and innovation meet.
The institution, chaired by Stefano Boeri, exhibits works by major Italian and international architects, designers and artists. Exhibitions, encounters, conferences and performances punctuate its programming, and provoke reflection on the key problems of our society, which also occupy public debate.
Triennale Milano has its own theatre, with international and multidisciplinary programming, and presents a collection of Italian design, as well as a library, archives and a conservation laboratory specializing in contemporary design.
Every 3 years, the institution organizes the International Exhibition of Triennale Milano, one of the most important events devoted to design and architecture. The next edition will take place in 2022.
On April 2019, Triennale Milano opened the Museo del Design Italiano inside its spaces, highlighting part of its permanent collection: nearly 1,600 pieces amongst the most iconic and representative works of Italian design.
Triennale Milano is housed in the Palazzo dell’Arte in Milan. Built in 1933 by architect Giovanni Muzio, it was designed as a flexible, modular space able to accommodate events as well as a museum, or theatrical performances.
