The Milan Council decided to create the Mudec Museum of Cultures in the old Ansaldo factory area to house and display the municipal collections of ethnographic material.
The display area is laid out around a large, covered central plaza on the first floor, which hosts the section of the museum with the works of the permanent collection and the rooms used for major exhibitions as well as the auditorium, a theatre with three hundred seats devoted to performances and the visual arts.
