From 1 to 9 October another novelty will be enlivening the beginning of the month: the first edition of Design City Milano, the festival to bring the culture of design to the public.
It will not just be another design week but an opportunity to experience design from a different viewpoint. Opificio 31 is preparing to host the Archiproducts Design Awards, with the final awards on 7 October, to decide the best in international design.
From 21 to 26 September the Milan Fashion Week will be turning the spotlights on the district, bringing with itself the best international trends. Single-brand showrooms, the most important trade fair of the sector, the headquarters of Armani: all the fashion system passes through here… this year Tortona will be hosting a high point event: the Mudec museum will see the inauguration of the show curated by Franca Sozzani, “Crafting the Future”: histories of handicrafts and innovation.
Have your diaries at the ready and note down the important appointments!
The Tortona district is involved in a veritable programme of initiatives, making the area an increasingly wide-ranging container, open to different communities, from fashion to design to the cinema.
We start with an absolute novelty, a new creative language that is invading the area: the cinema.
The Milano Film Festival, one of the main seasons of the best independent cinema, will be running from 8 to 18 September, the first edition to be held in the Tortona district. The venue of the initiative will be BASE, while some of the screenings will take place in various locations in the area, including Archiproducts in Via Tortona 31.
Don’t forget the popcorn as you watch the films surrounded by the fantastic post-industrial skyline of the area!
Our exhibition circuit in the innovative Tortona district includes exhibition spaces that accommodate the creative needs of design, fashion, and art,
as well as food and culture, central themes for Milan and the world at Expo 2015.
We offer specially tailored services that include scouting the right space for the client's needs, designing a creative installation concept, and developing a communications strategy.
Each of our locations has a story to tell, a past that can still be read in the structural details.
These are redeveloped industrial spaces, the repositories of different layers of Zona Tortona's identity, a key to how it has been used over the years.
Each space contains traces of its beginnings and original use with clues found in the names they have been given. These are not just containers; these spaces have their own identities.
