For many Milanese, the memories linked to this place are confused between school trips and the pride of an identity that becomes a product. For designers it is an infinite database of icons, styles and models on which the evolution of the system of objects of modern man has been based. Paragonable to the Victorian & Albert Museum in London in terms of quality and quantity, compared to its English cousin, it has delays in organization, appeals in terms of layout (even if BPPR has a hand in it) as well as image. Ceramics, glass, silver, musical instruments, tapestries, jewellery and furniture. The section dedicated to furniture, more recently restored, continues to sin in the presentation, and confusion reigns over. However, a visit gives emotions and concreteness. History is made up of recourses like linguistic remixes, thus you realize how much they have in common characters like Giò Ponti, Gianni Versace, Carlo Mollino and Ettore Sottsass, just to name a few. Getting lost in the corridors is easy, like seeing Michelangelo and Canaletto, a frescoed courtyard or the Rai satellite tower from a window overlooking the park.
