• La Triennale di Milano

    Cultural Centre
  • While this three-yearly exhibition continues to run after 70 years, the palazzo is now a melange of museums in Milan, plus avant-garde fashion, photography and multi-media exhibitions (akin to Paris's Centre Pompidou) in 8,000m2 on three floors. 
    Built on the edges of Parco Sempione in 1933, the fascist-style Palazzo dell' Arte was designed by Giovanni Muzio to host the Triennial Exposition of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts and Modern Architecture.

    The Collezione Permanente celebrates Italian industrial design from 1945 to the present day, with over 1,000 pieces from the likes of Achille Castiglione, Joe Colombo and Gìo Ponti (Ponti fans should take the lift up his 108m high white-painted steel watchtower Torre Branca, built in 1933 for the Triennale for superb 360° views of Milan, just next door).

    Back in the Triennale is an excellent café (Coffee Design, see Snack) and art bookshop that specializes in rare publications on design and architecture
