Milan: art and food

24 Apr

This is the place where my daughter had to be for her test, the headquarters of the Triennale.

The “Triennale di Milano” is a design museum and events venue located inside the Palace of Art building, part of Parco Sempione, the park grounds adjacent to Castello Sforzesco. It 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 houses the Collezione Permanente, a collection of significant objects in contemporary Italian design.The museum has been the venue for the Milan Triennial Exhibition of Decorative Arts and Modern Architecture; recognized by the Bureau of International Expositions, this major exhibition has been held thirteen times so far, the latest one in 1996. The museum also manages La Triennale di Milano Tokyo Museum, located in the Shiodome district of Tokyo, Japan.

It has a portion of the Sempione Park as a private ground for summer events and art exhibitions on open air

When we arrived, inside there were already some people waiting for the briefing and the calling for the test

When they called the applicants, I had a coffee at the bar lounge, a look at the bookshop and a tour of the two free little exhibitions there

The first one was about coffee, each aroma associates with a color and a sound, if you stand in the middle of the colored spot you can hear a different music and smell a different fragrance

This is about home automation, every aspect of your everyday living, supported by modern techology in helping you to warm up, cool down, light up ect, your home…. when you’re not home.

When the test was over (and by now we know she didn’t make it, damn!) we had lunch in a very nice and cozy place, Le Bistrò

We shared a very good mushrooms risotto….

and then we had a warm potatoes and octopus salad

and a cold one just on a bed of lettuce

Too bad M won’t have a job in Milan (after all she doesn’t like the city that much) and it was a little tiring, but I’m always grateful when I have the chance to do something different, even better if it’s totally unexpected and with my daughter!
