Riva center

The bulding of the centre is almost entirely covered with larch, a homage to the wood, the everlasting feature of Riva 1920.
In the wide and welcoming showroom, on the ground floor, is possible to touch some pieces of the main collections of Riva 1920, while on the first floor there is the unique Wood Museum that offers a real journey in the history and evolution of wood and its processes, cultural heritage of the company, since the beginning. The museum is always open to the public and the entrance is free.

The Showroom, on the first floor, is almost 1200 square metres large and exalts the essence and uniqueness of products in solid wood. Here there are numerous objects and many design works, symbol of the great variety of the production, which renews and updates every year. Part of the permanent collection are pieces in wood of re-use, such as the thousand-year Kauri, the Briccole from Venice and the scented cedar wood of Lebanon.


The wood museum, on the first floor, hosts more than 2000 machineries and historical tools for the woodworking, a unique collection in Europe as for the number of pieces (4000). The exhibition, whose aim is to rediscover the traditional woodworking in Cantù, gathers many tools of the XIX century coming from the Italian artisan shops. In this room there are planers, working tables, saws: technical names, almost forgotten, that remind us of the woodworking.
