At such a dramatic time as the one we are going through, we believe it is more important than ever to preserve and promote opportunities for dialogue between different countries, cultures and peoples. This is indeed the ambition of the 23rd International Exhibition: to create a space for debate where curators, artists, designers, architects, scientists, school groups, collectives from all over the world can meet and freely discuss how to push back the boundaries of our knowledge and reduce the gray areas that still extend across our planet. — Stefano Boeri, president of the Milan Triennale

The Triennale will promote a series of events with Ukrainian and international artists, intellectuals and scientists who are committed to “defend the values ​​of freedom, democracy and dialogue between the peoples of the world”. As for the Russian participation, Stefano Boeri, president of the Milan Triennale, said that “the invitation to the Russian government to participate in the international exhibition with its own pavilion has been withdrawn”.
