The 51st “Saloni” system will be held at the futuristic spaces of the Milan- Rho Fairgrounds. Encompassing a number of different sections, it offers a widespread panorama of home furnishings, gift items, decor, textiles and the latest technological innovations in kitchenware and bathroom furniture and accessories.
The “Salone Satellite”, dedicated to young designers, serves as a trait d’union between companies and up-andcoming design talents. In conjunction with various tradefair-related activities, Cosmit (Organizing Committee of the Italian Furniture Fair) contributes to spreading the spirit of the event to the rest of the city with events dedicated to design.
A spectacular event in which design products – classics of tradition, contemporary objects and prototypes created by the young designers showcasing their work at Salone Satellite – become the protagonists of a dance that conveys the visions that have generated them, by interacting with actors and dancers. Scheduled to be hosted at Teatro dell’Arte, a historic experimental venue, lying adjacent to Milan’s Triennale – a cradle of art, design and cultural projects – the performance transforms the movement and emotions underlying the history of the birth and success of Italian design into music.

A spectacular multimedia installation entitled “Skybook” will be staged in the ancient Roman heart of the city, formerly the site of Milan’s ancient forum situated at the crossroads of the city’s two main streets (the Cardo and the Decumano). The event will be hosted at Milan’s Pinacoteca Ambrosiana where, amidst images of sound and light, the ancient books, preserved in the library founded by Cardinal Federico Borromeo, will provide insight into the cultural wealth of the city, allowing visitors to discover Milan’s Roman counterpart, with noteworthy items including Leonardo da Vinci’s famous drawing of the concentric design of Milan.
