Triennale summer 2020

Voices, music and colours in the Giardino Giancarlo De Carlo

Triennale Milano
Viale Emilio Alemagna 6

The Triennale of Milano opens its spaces to relaunch art, culture and entertainment and to bring the entire city together with an extensive cinematic, musical and theatrical summer programme focusing on design and architecture. 


In addition to the permanent sculptures in the Garden, such as Giorgio de Chirico’s Metaphysical artwork Mysterious Baths - created for the XV Triennale in 1973 - the Museum of Italian Design will also be open, with free entry, throughout the summer season.


Visitors can also admire extraordinary works of art set amongst a great variety of trees in the Triennale Garden where a broad schedule of events has been organised in five specific areas:

  • The open-air Cinema area will host screenings in collaboration with AriAnteo, plus, cabaret and dates with design, live arts and photography
  • The Bosco area will hold lectures on urban transformations and contemporary art
  • At Alessandro Mendini's Teatrino (Puppet Theatre) visitors can join in talks on literature
  • the Rotonda area will host philosophy discussions near Ettore Sottsass’ artwork Sassi nel parco
  • the Radura space will be home to the Caffè in giardino


Mornings will be dedicated to children (up to the age of 14) in the philosophy/art campuses organized by the DynamoCamp association.

And you might come across some entertainers riding around the city with a fun three-wheeled Ape vehicle.


There will be stories relating to some objects chosen from the Museum's collection by great designers at the Ideas for Milano 2020 event to reflect, together with the Urban Center, on the way our lives have been transformed in lockdown and to study ideas to restart the city following the impact of Covid-19.


Two festivals are also scheduled as part of the programme, Milano Arch Week in September and Tempo delle Donne (September 11th -13th 2020), in collaboration with Corriere della Sera.
