Each year Milan’s Salone continues to sprawl into more of the city’s neighbourhoods, with more events, cocktails and sideshows to lure visitors away from the never-ending Rho fairgrounds. One of this year’s must-sees of “Fuori Salone”, as the fringe events are referred to, is the Triennale design museum.

An older sibling to the furniture fair – the venue has hosted exhibits dedicated to industrial design since the 1940s – the site is a welcome respite due to its small footprint and neatly curated rooms. It’s no surprise given the anniversaries being celebrated by Salone and Italy that Italianness was high on the Triennale’s agenda this year.
