Triennale di Milano

Established in Monza in 1923 as the first Biennial of Decorative Arts.

Created in 1923 as a showcase for modern decorative and industrial arts, with the aim of stimulating relations among the industry, production sectors and applied arts, La Triennale di Milano has soon become the mirror of artistic and architecture culture in Italy.

La Triennale di Milano is the main Italian event for the sectors of architecture, visual and decorative arts, design, fashion and audio/video production; it is a cultural production centre that organises and produces exhibitions, meetings, film festivals and travelling exhibitions.
