Tortona Design Week, eight events not to be missed

Among the most anticipated of Fuorisalone, Tortona Design Week presents itself this year with Fluidity and Design, a concept created to interpret and reread in an innovative way the conditions that shape our post-pandemic everyday life.

The concept was born out of the collaboration between Torneria Tortona and Tortona Locations – initiators and organizers of the event – which aims to restart through a cultural and sociological interpretation of design. A rich program of installations, exhibitions and events will accompany those who will experience the district from 6 to 12 June, without forgetting a close eye on sustainability.

Tortona Design Week, everything is reborn (too) from green

The project represents the continuity of the path the district has taken: in fact, it is the winner of The Roundabout: Design with nature competition, launched in 2021 by Tortona Design Week and Domus Academy. The chosen location is Rotonda in via Bergognone, which for the apartment has been converted into an outdoor installation, a manifesto for a sustainable and environmentally friendly Milan for the Olympic Winter Games in Milan Cortina 2026.
