This year the Politecnico di Milano (Polytechnic of Milan) celebrates its 150th anniversary. Traditionally there is a close relationship between the Politecnico and the Museo Nazionale della Scienza e della Tecnologia, and therefore the museum participates in the celebrations.
The exhibition TECH STORIES – Politecnico di Milano 1863-2013 provides the visitor with two routes, each telling stories of engineering, architecture, design, technical breakthroughs and scientific innovation that mark the 150 years of existence of the Polytechnic of Milan. Stories that have left a mark not only in Milan, but all over the country and, in some cases, throughout the world.
Six thematic “rooms” show some of the most significant moments of the last 150 years through documents, plans, drawings, objects, photographs and videos, while seven thematic “paths” wind through the permanent exhibitions of the museum and let the visitor discover objects that testify the historical link between the two institutions.
