The Museum

THE PROJECT TAKES SHAPE.

Starting from its opening in June 2020, the ADI Compasso d’Oro Museum in Milan will be host to more than 350 articles that have been awarded the Compasso d’Oro since its creation in 1954. The museum will be dynamic, continuously evolving and aimed at telling the story of Italian design in all its industrial, economic, cultural and social aspects. In addition to a cyclical exhibition featuring the Compasso d’Oro Collection, there will be in-depth thematic displays as well as a gallery open to the public free of charge which connects the entrance in via Ceresio to via Bramante. The museum’s design project has seen the involvement of Beppe Finessi as curator of the permanent exhibition, Luca Molinari as curator of spatial relations, Giulio Ceppi in charge of the accessibility program for less able members of the public and Ico Migliore, Mara Servetto and Italo Lupi as the team responsible for the design of the staging and setting up of the permanent collections as well as the brand identity and new logo.

The Site

TOGETHER WE CAN WORK MIRACLES

As soon as the renovation of the space in Milan’s via Ceresio 7 is finished, work will be underway on the preparation of the collection, the service spaces and the areas intended for catering and in-depth exhibitions. It will be a vast cultural site continually moving forward whose development has been presented since November 2019 on Instagram while the Facebook page shows the various pieces featured and video testimonials can be seen on the Youtube channel. This is an extremely exciting enterprise for Italian design, presented in its entirety from start to finish and one for which ADI Association for Industrial Design is living testimony.

How it was

A HISTORICAL PRODUCTION SITE

The building was specifically selected by the Milan Municipal Council to host the ADI Design Compasso d’Oro collection. The site is a historic part of Milan’s industrial culture and was originally an Enel electricity generating plant.Various elements of the city’s industrial archaeology will be on display in the Museum, which is located in an area of the city boasting a considerable level of architectural and urban impact and just round the corner from the Porta Garibaldi station and the Monumental Cemetery. A group of eight professional photographers, including Paolo Carlini, Paolo Demaldè, Saverio Lombardi Vallauri, Angelo Margutti, Andrea Rovatti, Mauro and Federico Tamburini, and Miro Zagnoli documented the state of the buildings before the work began, creating a permanent record of highly significant images.
