About Triennale Milano
Founded in 1923 as the First International Exhibition of Decorative Arts at the Villa Reale in Monza, in 1930 it was transformed into the Esposizione Triennale, and in 1933 it was moved to Milan to the premises of the Palazzo dell’Arte, built by the Milanese architect Giovanni Muzio and designed as a modular and flexible building, the current home of Triennale Milano.
Since then, the institution has had as its objective the enhancement of creativity applied to industry and the dissemination of design culture. Applied arts, architecture, design, crafts, photography, urban studies, fashion, engineering, art and new media become the contents of its rich cultural programme.
Open to an international audience, Triennale has established itself as a place to experiment the frontiers of research in the most diverse fields from technology to art, from science to social policy, from fashion to new media, from design to architecture, from performing art to theatre.
