To be fair, the Milano Design Week does not exist without Fuorisalore!
It is the finest part, involving several people, non- specialist, too. It is the best way to attract the young and not, toward design and architecture. Walking around Milan’s quarters during the whole next week, you might see artists showing their creations and start-ups presenting their products to the world.
We can say that Milan, thanks to Fuorisalone managed to carve out a space for all those who have design in their blood, letting them free to create what they want to.
By the way, next Friday I will be at the Showroom Giorgio Graesan & Friends, a leading firm as regards wall decorative paints, where their Paint Revolution is waiting form me: an event dedicated totally to creativity.
The Paint Revolution signed by Giorgio Graesan at Fuorisalone.
From 4th April to 1st June, all the area in front of their shop, in via Vittor Pisani, 16,will house four decorators every day, who will paint panels and surfaces trying new techiques in painting, using stuccoes and paints. Still from the photos you can see on their Facebook profile, we can breahe a festive atmosphere sounding “ Make Art, not War”.
Though you can’t be there, I will make you live the Fuorisalone atmosphere updating you on my social networks!
After that, one problem only is left: how to move from one area to another, in Milan.
For this edition of Fuorisalone 2016 was created the Cycling the week, a coloured line linking the Ventura/Lambrate area to the Brera district, passing through the liberty area of Porta Venezia, to follow on foot or by bike.
But what is this Clying the week?
In the night between Monday 11th and Tuesday 12th (April), at the dawn of Salone del Mobile (Furniture Showroom), a team of unusual painters will sketch a green and a violet line in washable tempera, along a 7 kilometre’s way, helping us to get our bearings in Milan, during the Design Week. One colour to go and the other for the way back. A thread to follow, not to lose our bearings, through the main threes districts of Fuorisalone.
