Opening of the Triennale Design Museum in Milan
The Triennale Design Museum, the first museum dedicated to design in Italy, has opened inside La Triennale di Milano on December 6, 2007. The new Museum establishes a permanent exhibition space for design in the heart of a city marked by a rich design heritage.
The architectural design for the restoration of the building and the conversion of the Museum was done by Michele De Lucchi. The innovative architectural feature of the Triennale Design Museum is the creation of its own entrance, via a bridge over the grand staircase, so that the Museum exists both inside the Triennale and as an independent body, visible as such.
