December 6 saw the inauguration of the long-awaited and much-debated Triennale Design Museum in Milan.



Access bridge to the Triennale Design Museum, Michele De Lucchi, Milan, 2007 "I believe that the bridge unites, also in a metaphorical sense; above all today I believe there is a need for tolerance, that we need bridges," says De Lucchi: the bridge is intended to unite two spaces but also two times, Giovanni Muzio's time in the past and the time of the new Triennale today. A bridge that Muzio himself would have liked - as the architect always says - but which could not be built in his day, as the technologies had not yet been perfected.
The bridge is natural in colour, with some parts painted in the same grey as Muzio used on the window and door frames in the Triennale building. This is not Michele De Lucchi's first bridge; he sees bridges as falling somewhere between design and architecture, in the tradition of Gio Ponti, Marco Zanuso and the great Italian masters.
