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]

The museum has been the venue for La Triennale di Milano ("the Milan triennial exhibition"). Recognized by the Bureau of International Expositions, this major exhibition has been held thirteen times so far, the latest one in 1996,[3] and the next scheduled for 2016.[4]

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