Milano Design Week 2018: exploring Milan and Fuorisalone

Milan Design Week is an unmissable event for anyone who loves design, but also for everyone who enjoys experiencing the city in all its splendor.

From April 17 to 22, in conjunction with the 57th edition of Salone Internazionale del Mobile, the capital of the Lombardy region will attract attention thanks to Fuorisalone, the most irreverent soul of the exposition.

Milan will be divided into 11 districts that will present more than a thousand cultural events, installations, exhibits, and cocktail parties tied to the world of furniture, industrial design and more.
Events involving other sectors such as cars, technology, art, fashion and food also continue to increase in number.
In the core is the Brera Design District, a point of reference for Italian design that, with its maze of streets full of furniture showrooms, art galleries and historical palazzos, is the most interesting circuit of Fuorisalone.
Among the most important events is “Transfer”, an installation by Britt Moran and Emiliano Salci at DIMORE GALLERY, Via Solferino 11.
Also interesting is the “Mono Mania Mexico” presentation at Moroso Showroom, Via Pontaccio 8.

Tortona is another famous area full of attractions and historically tied to Fuorisalone.
The numerous industrial spaces of the neighborhood fill with interesting events and projects. Don’t miss the installation tied to living with technology at the Rossana Orlandi space (Via Matteo Bandello 14/16).

For those who prefer luxury and fashion, MonteNapoleone Design Experience 2018 is the best choice. The streets of the Milan fashion district come alive with events created to celebrate Milan, Italian style and design in the city’s most prestigious boutiques.

Finally, Università degli Studi di Milano, one of the most surprising spaces of Fuorisalone, hosts “Interni Design Motion”, a series of experimental and interactive installations tied to design and architecture.
Fuorisalone has become an integral part of Milan: it’s an unmissable occasion for exploring every corner and admiring its indubitable charm.
