The Museum of Design, Art and ArchitectureEven if now it has a lot of competition around the world, many see the city of Milan as the design capital of Italy and perhaps of all of Europe. So, it is only natural that its design museum will be particularly impressive.
Indeed, the Triennale Museum of Design and Architecture is one of the world's most regarded museums for design, art and contemporary architecture. Its main goal is to present the Italian design that has become famous in the world, an innovative and heterogeneous design whose flowering period started at the beginning of the 20th century and carries out until today.
There are plenty of impressive displays from the best contemporary artists and Italian designers from the past and present, along with superior furniture designers from all over the world.
From the museum collection, you will learn about the diversity and innovation that has characterized Italian design throughout the generations. There is a clear illustration of the field of design as a fascinating combination of art, industry, aesthetics and usability, and how Milan and Italy have become so successful in the global and modern design scene.
You can wander through the permanent exhibits in Triennale. But here, throughout the year, temporary exhibitions of design, art and architecture are also held alongside various events in those worlds.

Do not miss out on the museum's shop, with its range of designer products, along with design books, architecture and modern art. A visit to Triennale is a must for all lovers of design in general and the glorious Italian design in particular.
