The workshop of one of Italy’s greatest designers is open to the public to narrate the work, and the unique approach of Achille Castiglioni to product design, an approach based on technical competence,  irony, and passion.
In 2006, Castiglioni’s heirs signed an agreement with the Triennale of Milan in order to open the workshop to the public. During the guided tours it is possible to see prototypes and maquettes of Castiglioni’s projects, his work tools, and many inspiring objects he collected throughout his life.
