Following a now well-established trend, the annual appointment with Fuorisalone returns to Milan for a week full of events, presentations and special projects. “Fuorisalone” is the most important event in the world related to the topic of design. The term is used to define the events and exhibitions that animate the entire city of Milan during the weeklong “Salone del Mobile” happening in April.
The ‘Salone del Mobile’ and ‘Fuorisalone’ define Milan’s Design Week, premiering the latest trends for the forthcoming year and heralding a tidal wave of events, exhibitions and presentations. During the Fuorisalone, many locations usually feature longer opening hours. Moreover, during Milan Design Week many important brands located in the design districts introduce their new collections and host special events with live music and entertainment for a totally unmissable extravaganza.
Although the events are usually scattered throughout the city, the Fuorisalone recognises a series of main districts, usually distinguished by the endorsement of Milan’s Municipality.
Innovation for the 2019 edition
– It has been announced that for the 2019 edition of the Fuorisalone, Ventura Projects and Grandi Stazioni have joined forces to devote the spaces of Magazzini Raccordati, within the Centrale District, to the world of fashion. This means, a whole year featuring fashion parades, exhibitions, cultural events and shootings.
– After a 10-year-hiatus, Dutch Ventura Projects makes its comeback in Tortona District, in the spaces that formerly hosted the Ansaldo workshops, now known as BASE Milano. The activities by Ventura Projects are set to span over an overall surface of 3,500 sq.m over two storeys.
