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 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 is housed in the Palazzo dell’Arte in Milan. Built in 1933 by architect Giovanni Muzio, it was designed as a flexible, modular space. Triennale Milano has its own theatre, with international and multidisciplinary programming, particulary focused on performing art. 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.
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.
