The Alessi Museum
Our role as a “Factory of Italian Design,” somewhere between manufacturing and art, has gradually attracted the attention of museums of applied arts and industrial design from all over the world, and there have been many exhibitions of our work. Thanks to our constant experimentation over the years, we have produced a vast and fascinating body of prototypes which, together with our historical output and countless objects collected over the decades from all over the globe, form
a valuable cross-section of the history of our field and our aims.
Designed by Mendini and curated by Francesca Appiani,
the Alessi Museum is open to researchers, scholars, journalists and students.
The Alessi Museum can be visited by appointment.

“a true work of design must be able to move people, to convey feelings, to trigger memories, to surprise, to go against the grain... We work on expressive languages and on the expressive potential of the items... From this point of view, design intended... to conjure up images in people's minds, which makes them a bit happier, still has tremendous potential ”.
