The workshop of one of the italian greatest designers is open to the public so to narrate the work, and the unique approach, of Achille Castiglioni to object design, plenty of irony as well as capable to provide every object with a narration.
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.
