Long, long ago. Before Corona was invented, I spent a few relaxing and art-filled days in beautiful Milan over Easter in 2019. It’ s funny, it was only 3 years ago, but it seems like half a millennium to me. Of course, a visit to the Triennale was not to be missed. The design museum is also housed in the building complex, here is the description:
“Museo del Design Italiano, in the evocative spaces of the Curva on the ground floor of Triennale, presents a selection of the most iconic and representative pieces of Italian design, for the first time in a permanent exhibition. The works on show are some of the 1,600 objects in the Triennale collection, chosen by an advisory committee that brings together some of the top names in the world of Italian design and architecture: Paola Antonelli, Andrea Branzi, Mario Bellini, Antonio Citterio, Michele De Lucchi, Piero Lissoni, Claudio Luti, Fabio Novembre, and Patricia Urquiola. The simple, linear display aims to show off the works to their best advantage, in chronological order, and provides insights into the history, creative period and context in which each work was designed.”Source: https://triennale.org/en/events/museo-del-design-italiano
The items shown above reminded me (don’t anyone laugh now) of my youth, starting with moon boots and ending with a sofa shaped like a mouth. A great collection, but could be much bigger. Just be inspired by the 9 pictures above. A visit is definitely worth it, because there is much, much more to see. I, at least, spent half a day without any problems and I didn’t get bored.
Stay tuned, until the next museum visit.
