The Palazzo dell’Arte at the Milan Triennale has been treated to a restyling. In particular, a new image for the Teatro dell’Arte, designed in the 1930s by Giovanni Muzio as a facility for experimental performances.

For this reason, the restoration was assigned to Jacopo Foggini, an architect who operates on the borderline between art and design and creates works of great dramatic impact. Foggini has decided to leave the original structure intact, intervening on the facings and lights.


The result, thanks to the change of colors, in tones of white and electric blue for the walls and the seats, is surprisingly contemporary. The wallpaper specially created for this project by Barnaba Fornasetti and the majestic chandelier designed by Foggini and produced by Slamp are particularly striking.
