1923: Past Futures
July 15 2022 – January 8 2023
Over the years, the International Exhibitions have reflected significant socio-cultural changes, often anticipating epoch-making trends and innovations in editions dedicated, for example, to Tempo libero (Free Time, 13th Triennale, 1964) and Il grande numero (The Great Number, 14th Triennale, 1968).
In anticipation of the 2023 centenary of the institution’s founding, the virtual reality experience of 1923: Past Futures recreates “past futures” and offers a journey through time to discover the history of the International Exhibitions. The diachronic narrative covers a century of the Triennale’s history, from 1923 to today, with occasional temporal leaps, in an engaging, immersive experience. Along the way, visitors can participate in the protests of ’68, visit the Palazzo dell’Arte as it was originally conceived and enter into the mind of the architect Giovanni Muzio.
