Milan Design

Not just Salone: ​​where design lives

Milan and design are an essential pairing. This is a widespread fact: Milan is the design capital of the country, providing trendy ideas for those who work in the industry. A walk among the famous 5 vie or five streets will also be of great interest to anybody who appreciates cultural tourism.

Lombardy marries tradition and innovation with unique solutions either for the weekend or a long vacation.

Every spring, amid the aisles of Rho Fiera, you can attend one of the most important events of the season, the Salone del Mobile. Besides its exhibition grounds, the city offers an immersion into style year-round.

This becomes evident if you go to the districts of Brera and Tortona during the Fuorisalone, when local workshops, ateliers and architectural firms open their gates to the public.

Whoever wants to learn more, they can always count on associations dedicated to Italian Designers in Milan.

The design capital boasts the collections of the Achille Castiglioni Foundation, which showcases the renowned architect's workshop. 

Studio Magistretti hosts interesting exhibitions while the Giovanni Sacchi Archive reveals how pieces by Aldo Rossi, Ettore Sottsass and Zanuso are made.

Cultural tourism in Lombardy continues at the Triennale, the Kartell Museum at the Naviglio and others.
