A Calendar of Italian Home Design Events and Trade Fairs
1961: Milan becomes the eye of the storm brought by the interior design’s industry boom, witnessing the birth of the Salone del Mobile and hosting the first important Italian design events. A new window is opened on the world of home design, letting in a breath of fresh air with innovative ideas and revolutionary products that have been available to “common” people since then. Rome, Florence, Bologna, Venice or Genova have soon followed Milan, humming with activities related to the design events calendar. Old style mixed with the most innovative design, previews on ideas that still have to be launched on the worldwide market, Italian class merged with international know-how, this is all an Italian design show can offer to its large public.
