The Triennale di Milano is a design and art museum in the Parco Sempione in Milan, in Lombardy in northern Italy. It is housed in the Palazzo dell’Arte, which was designed by Giovanni Muzio and built between 1931 and 1933; construction was financed by Antonio Bernocchi and his brothers Andrea and Michele.
It will be at its highlight during Milan Design Week, so if you’re in the city during this period this is a good suggestion to not only help you reflect but also have a look at some defining trends in design. You can visit the exhibition and the international entries for this event within the spaces of La Triennale di Milano as well as at the surrounding areas of Parco Sempione, specifically where the Palazzo dell’Arte––the building housing the Triennale––is.
In 2019 the XXII Triennale was celebrated under the title “Broken Nature”, focusing on design approaches that explore the relations between humans, nature and other species.

Paola Antonelli, Senior Curator of Architecture and Design and Director of Research & Development at The Museum of Modern Art, is the person entrusted as the main curator of this edition of the event. As a matter of fact, this whole yearly initiative is an important forum for reflecting on the changes in the design area, as well as how these changes are affecting our contemporary society. This period will be a chance of exchange of ideas among the international design community, including architects, artists, institutions, universities, organizations, and many more aficionados of this area.
The 2019 theme of La Triennale di Milano was titled “Broken Nature: Design Takes on Human Survival”. That edition studied the state of the strands that connect human beings to the natural environment. It was an initiative that invited many young designers as well as interested participants to engage in a collective reflection on this matter.
Themes such as Restorative Design, Magic Pragmatism, Complex Systems and Long-Term Attitudes bring an example on how to repair and reconstitute our species’ bonds with the systems our world (both around and within us). To accomplish this goal the curatorial team picked up some good examples of design approaches that seek to encourage a multifaceted and comprehensive reading of the issues that are in discussion. These matters were already in discussion during January in New York City (see the video above).
This exhibition ran from the 1st of March until the 1st of September of 2019.
