Opening hours: Tuesday – Friday 17:00 - 21:30 (last entrance 20:30), Satuday and Sunday 11:30 - 21:30 (last entrance 20:30)


From 9 April 2019 at the Triennale di Milano, the Museum of Italian Design directed by Joseph Grima presents for the first time in a permanent exhibition a selection of the most iconic and representative pieces of Italian design, part of the 1,600 objects in the Triennale Collection.


The Museum is located on the ground floor of the Palazzo dell'Arte and occupies the space of the Curva. The exhibition aims to give maximum emphasis to the works, organized in chronological order, and provides insights on the history and context in which each work was designed, through the exhibition of mostly unpublished materials from the Triennale Archives: photographs, advertising campaigns, original packaging.


Moreover, in some cases the objects are put in dialogue with the corresponding wooden models made by Giovanni Sacchi - granted as a deposit by the Regione Lombardia to Triennale - to show the evolution of the project, from the phase of study and development to its realization and production.
