ARTI APPLICATE, ARTI INDUSTRIALI: UNA QUESTIONE STRATEGICA
AbstractThe idea of a quality of life based on high handcraft-manufacturing requirements in their interaction with an industrialised society has an important part â€“ beyond the particular case - in the Expo 2015 project. Itâ€™s in the post war period that in Milan the strategic question of a â€œsocial artâ€ is raised, as defined by the experience of the artistic section of the Belgium Labor Party, put into practice in the activity of the Brussels Peopleâ€™s House. The research of better living collective standards sustained by a concrete commitment in the improvement of the social housing and the applied art system is expressed with a series of exhibi tions. In Milan with the Regional Lombard Exhibition of decorative arts of the Human Society in 1919 â€“ contemporary to Bauhaus in Weimar- and later on with the Biennial of decorative arts in Monza (1923-1930) and again in Milan in 1933 with the 5th Triennial, (showcase of urban planning, industrial arts and most innovative artistic productions) that acquires immediately a world level. These issues are still today the driving force of the Milanese Triennial activity.
