Salone del Mobile 2023: a special appointment at Palazzo Litta

18/04/2023 - 23/04/2023

For Fuorisalone 2023, high craftsmanship and creativity return to enhance the monumental spaces of Palazzo Litta, a baroque jewel box in the heart of Milan, in the historic Cinque Vie district, and the prestigious headquarters of the Regional Secretariat for Lombardy of the Ministry of Culture. On the occasion of Design Week 2023, Fondazione Cologni is once again proposing the format "Arts & Crafts & Design at Palazzo Litta": from April 18 to 23, it will be possible to visit as many as five exhibitions dedicated to the dialogue between know-how and design thinking. Big names in design and craftsmen or companies of excellence will be gathered here to celebrate the beauty of an educated and conscious creativity, between revisited tradition and innovation. The initiative is part of the collaboration between Palazzo Litta and Fondazione Cologni, for the realization of a rich program of shared cultural and exhibition initiatives on the common theme of high artistic craftsmanship and design.
