On Sunday, 29 November 1863, the Istituto Tecnico Superiore di Milano, the original nucleus of the Politecnico di Milano, was founded under the guidance of Francesco Brioschi. 150 years later, in addition to celebrating this anniversary, the university took advantage of this important event to create, over the course of an entire year, a journey to rediscover its origins and identity, creating ties with the territory in which it operates on a daily basis and to reflect on its role in a future perspective. It is within this framework that Milan 2033. Seeds of the future. 150 years of the Politecnico di Milano took shape: an exhibition, in collaboration with the Triennale di Milano, that looks to our next twenty years and how the research and design experiments currently underway will shape our lives in the city, in Milan and in other realities throughout the world. “How will we travel, how will we live and how we will work (and study) in 2033?” and moreover “Which new communication technologies, materials and energy sources will our everyday world be made up of?” These are the questions that were put to a group of professors and researchers from different disciplines called on to take part in a large scientific committee.
