Milan Triennal

The Milan Triennial or Triennale di Milano is an art exhibition held every three years. The first international exhibition of decorative art was held in Monza in 1923. These took place every two years. Starting with the fifth edition of the art exhibition, it was designed to run every three years and moved to Milan. There Giovanni Muzio built the Palazzo dell'Arte, which became the center and venue of the Milan Triennial. The Triennial was considered an icon of cultural life and a promoter of dialogues between society, art and industry. Between 1936 and 1996, a total of 30 exhibitions were shown, followed by a break. The format was taken up again in 2016.
