The name Triennale simply means that, beyond the customary crowd of temporary exhibitions, a major international theme event has been quite regularly organized every three years since 1923. The 22nd Triennale
was incredibly timely and popular in 2019, with its accent on nature and "the nation of plants". This year the theme - Unknown Unknowns
- may appear more disquieting, being subtitled as An Introduction to Mysteries
Yet hope is still the focus, Twenty-three countries
are officially taking active part
once again (an invitation to Russia has been withdrawn, by the way), and the historical avant-garde role of Italy is underlined by the pioneer Elea computer (pictured) designed by Olivetti in 1957 with interfaces by Ettore Sottsass Jr.
Several other sections occupy the whole building. Besides the main exhibition
and the national pavilions, find here La tradizione del nuovo
(The tradition of the new, on Italian design), Mondo Reale
(Real world) and the virtual reality exhibition 1923: Past Futures
The international exhibitions closed, as expected, on December 11
, 2022. The announcement has been released, however, that the main exhibition
, La tradizione del nuovo
and Mondo Reale
keep being available till January 8, 2023. .:.
