Salone del Mobile.Milano: a 60-years-long story
It has never been easy to define the Salone del Mobile di Milano. Born in 1961 as a furniture fair, also to promote exports, the Salone del Mobile has always been focused on the cultural aspects of the show. Already in 1965, a large exhibition space was dedicated to shows with no commercial end, just to spread the value of design. And, since the 1970s, companies have invested heavily in exhibition design, creating a culture of exhibition design as temporary architecture.
Milan Design Week and Fuorisalone
Over the years, the Salone del Mobile has grown into the world’s leading lifestyle event, also thanks to the Fuorisalone, the set of collateral events held in Milan during the Salone. That’s how the Milano Design Week was born, an event that attracts over 400,000 people every year. 400,000 people that sleep, eat, move, engaging over 23,000 local businesses in their daily activities. Salone, Fuorisalone, Milano Design Week have, thus, become complementary to the city, an essential part of Milan’s yearly cultural and tourist offer. Moreover, the pavilions of Rho Fieramilano, are well connected to the center of Milan and, thanks to high speed trains, to the cities of Turin and Bologna.
