After the overwelhelming succes of the first edition of Ventura Centrale, Ventura Projects will re-open the beautiful abandoned warehouses underneath Milan’s Central Station, ex Magazzini Raccordati. “We will present an eclectic mix of contemporary design by showcasing both emerging as well as established brands…”

Fabrica, the Benetton Group’s communication research center, will present Paradigma, an exhibition installation in collaboration with  Triennale Reciprocity Design Liège and the Pierre Frey manufactory. To celebrate its 25th anniversary, The American Surface Magazine collaborates with David Rockwell to present “The Diner”, a special setting inspired by the archetype of the American restaurant. It will host a series of talks during the week and in the evening it will turn into a nightclub with shows and parties until late at night. Last but not least, in front of Magazzini Franco Mazzucchelli realized a special installation for the event.
