The Triennale di Milano is a museum of art and design in the Parco Sempione in Milan, in Lombardy in northern Italy. It is housed in the Palazzo dell'Arte [it], 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 Milan Triennial, an international exhibition of art and design, was held at the museum thirteen times between 1936 and 1996,[2] and – after a break of twenty years – again in 2016.[3]

Since 2003 the Triennale has awarded the triennial Gold Medal for Italian Architecture (Italian: Medaglia d'oro all'architettura italiana).[4]

A permanent museum of Italian design, the Trienniale Design Museum, was opened in 2007.[5]: 51  It hosts design, architecture, and the visual, scenic and performing arts.

The building houses a theatre, the Teatro dell'Arte, which was also designed by Muzio.[5]: 51
