La 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.[1]:1948

The museum 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.[2]

La Triennale di Milano ("the Milan triennial exhibition"), an |international exhibition of art and design, was held at the museum thirteen times between 1936 and 1996,[3] and – after a break of twenty years – again in 2016.[4]

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