Exhibitions and installations in Milan during the Salone del Mobile 2008
The exhibitions and events which take place during the fair in the whole of the inner city of Milan attract not only trade visitors but also masses of private design enthusiasts. For six days Milan is transformed into an urban design event for the international scene by discriminatingly curated exhibitions such as those in the Triennale and the annual increase in events held both in the Zona Tortona and in the showrooms of many retailers.
We have put together a few impressions for you.
