To celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Superior Technical Institute of Milan, better known as the Politecnico, founded in 1863. The exhibition tells the story of its main protagonists and the most important moments in its history. Divided in two different yet complementary paths, it covers architecture, design and engineering, technical discoveries and scientific innovation. The exhibition includes a series of pieces from the museum’s private collection founded by Guido Ucelli di Nemi a former student of the Polytechnic. Some of the Polytechnic’s contributions to the city were the first power station of Europe in 1883, the Triennale in 1933 and the Milan subway in 1955. Among the its famous personalities were Giovanni Battista Pirelli, who introduced the industrial production of rubber to Italy in 1872, Giulio Natta, Nobel prize winner for chemistry in 1963, Enrico Forlanini, who created an experimental model of the helicopter in 1877, and the architects Aldo Rossi and Renzo Piano.
