Who likes to stay in a trendy place and want to visit new clubs, the most prestigious exhibitions, go shopping and looking for creative products, taste dishes of the most renowned chefs, in Milan will find all the essential for a fashion holiday.
For this reason, we recommend a trip to the city of Milan and a visit to Triennale, which relate to contemporary art, design, fashion, cinema and even food, although indirectly.
Innovation, design and genuine flavors in the creative capital of Italy
Palazzo dell’Arte is the historic home that houses the Triennale, is located in Viale Alemagna 6 and is both the birthplace of the Design Museum and Teatro dell’Arte, spaces designed to promote innovative projects, present to the public a series of experimental performances but also host conferences and film screenings.
Among the many scheduled events, we focus on some really interesting for curious tourists: “Auto da sé”, exhibition organized at the Triennale Design Museum with the aim to investigate the periods of economic crisis such as engines of design creativity. Specifically, the exhibition compares the ’30s, the ’70s and the Noughties, an exhibition full of ideas about inventions born during historical periods often underestimated; the event is scheduled from April 2014 until February 2015.
The exhibition “Gola, arte e scienza del gusto” explores the relationship between one of the pleasures of life (food), scientific research and artistic production; the event consists in five thematic areas that deepen the social aspects of food, the contrast between the satisfaction of appetite with junk foods and the need for healthy eating. These topics are discussed with videos, one or more artworks and scientific workshops.
You can book a guided tour to learn more about the paths of science and taste and discover whaich mechanisms regulate this basic component of our lives. You can visit the exhibition until March 12th.
