Triennale is a unique and slightly awkward “blur” of a ship, a hangar, a fair and a palace. In the post war years, it has undergone series of transformations that levelled the “awkwardness” in favour of a generic museum space (many white walls, controlled lighting, etc). Paradoxically, the original condition is much more suggestive, contemporary and suitable for a cultural institution today.

The proposal embraces the ambition to return “back to Muzio”, as per competition brief, aiming to regain the specificity the Triennale once had and give it a contemporary interpretation.
