La Triennale di Milano is a design and art museum in Milan, Italy. Built in 1923, it is located in the proximity of Parco Sempione, the park grounds adjacent to Castello Sforzesco. It hosts exhibitions and events which highlight contemporary Italian design, urban planning, architecture, music, and media arts, emphasizing the relationship between art and industry. The museum also houses the Collezione Permanente, a collection of significant objects in contemporary Italian design.[1]

The museum has been the venue for the Milan Triennial Exhibition of Decorative Arts and Modern Architecture; recognized by the Bureau of International Expositions, this major exhibition has been held thirteen times so far, the latest one in 1996,[2] and the next scheduled for 2016.[3]

The museum also manages La Triennale di Milano Tokyo Museum, located in the Shiodome district of Tokyo, Japan.
