Fuorisalone, when Milan becomes the design capital
Fuorisalone means “outside the show”, and it refers to the many events collateral to the Milan Furniture show, held every year in April.
It is one of Milan’s finest moments. The city comes alive with hundreds of events and thousands of visitors and journalists. There are debates and public events with architects, urban planners and designers; astonishing installations that offer a taste of what the future may hold in store. Locations that are normally closed to the general public are opened and used as spectacular venues. Many of the events are accompanied by cocktails or refreshments, so that Fuorisalone feels rather like a long, lavish party.
