Triennale Upside Down, the new online schedule of Triennale Milano

The Milan Triennale closes its physical space but opens a new content-rich digital schedule.

The Triennale di Milano closes its doors to the public but offers a new online schedule, Triennale Upside Down.

After the experience of Triennale Decameron, the institution transforms itself from a physical space to a digital space, always accessible online, through which many and varied contents will be presented, focusing on recently opened exhibitions, the Museum of Italian Design and its collection, materials from the Archives, the Triennale Milano Teatro program and related Education events and activities. It will also go so far as to “turn upside down” perspectives, looks and points of view, offering new keys to interpretation and interpretation that will enrich Triennale’s proposal.

There will be videos, podcasts, guided tours, educational activities, online meetings and performances, masterclasses: Triennale’s digital proposal aims to offer insights and opportunities for reflection, escapism and inspiration.

“In a difficult and uncertain moment like the one we are living, culture is a fundamental resource and must seek new ways to reach our communities,” said Stefano Boeri, president of Triennale Milano. “The task of a cultural institution is to continue its activity, to carry on the work with artists, planners, designers, to renew the exchange and dialogue with the public. The two recently opened major exhibitions dedicated to Enzo Mari and Claudia Andujar, the Public Program events, the guided tours of the Museum of Italian Design, the performances of the FOG festival, all this extraordinary wealth that is Triennale Milano in the coming days will continue to be accessible on digital channels and platforms.”
