Design Week at 5VIE

The ample stage of the Fuorisalone this fall also welcomes the 8th edition of 5VIE, with its own exceptional program of events (dedicated this year to the designer AG Fronzoni), from 4 to 10 September. Exhibitions and installations with guests and partners, encounters and talks throughout the central district, but also with digital happenings at the new portal

“The major themes of social innovation, sustainability, digital media and new growth scenarios” will be on the agenda in the upcoming 5VIE Design Week, which sets out to think about active design, capable of making a “leap forward” while underscoring “the necessity of a restart in terms of a new constellation of values, offering inspiration for all the players in a post-pandemic future.”
