DE-SIGN. The art of Italian design before and after Leonardo

      The Salone del Mobile.Milano is renewing its powerful links with the city of Milan at its 58th edition with a homage to its most brilliant and eclectic ‘adopted son’, Leonardo da Vinci, in the form of two outstanding and hugely evocative installations guaranteed to provide a memorable cultural and emotional visitor experience.

      From 6th to 14th April, the Salone del Mobile.Milano has chosen the Conca dell’Incoronata and the water as the protagonists of the traditional city event, AQUA. Leonardo’s Vision. On the other hand, at the fairgrounds, in Pavilion 24, DE-SIGNO. The art of Italian design before and after Leonardo will celebrate his work and especially his legacy to the art of design and craftsmanship.

      DE-SIGNO will be an immersive installation that will marry the languages of film and theatrical scenography in an inclusive and exciting way. It will house a show of images and music illustrating Leonardo’s approach to design and the industriousness of the Renaissance workshops and laboratories as related to the savoir-fair and design of contemporary design companies: all under the banner of the Italian art of beauty.
