Design is coming back home with the Milan Design Week 2022 edition: 6th-12th June. Where to go? What’s the best? What are the unmissable events? Here you will find all the answers you are looking for!

First of all, arm yourself with the fundamental tool to face the Milan Design Week: my App with the guide to the most interesting events and the most beautiful locations. Gucki Fuorisalone Guide is available for free on Apple Store e Google Play Store.

In the Gucki Fuorisalone Guide App you will find the most interesting events organized by area, district by district.
Do you have little time? You can also find the “Da non perdere – Unmissable events” section with the best of the best!

The App was created to share my passion for the Fuorisalone with enthusiasts and professionals who, like me, were looking for a tool capable of “filtering” the events and not the usual encyclopedic guides that collect all the events without giving advice or preferences.
In my App instead, you will find my selection, my advice. And after years, years and years – I don’t want to count but I haven’t missed a Design Week since high school! – I can proudly tell you: trust me!
Just one defect: I’m very sorry to tell you that the app is just in Italian. But the essentials you have to know are dates and addresses and those are untranslatable!

After two “reduced” editions due to the Pandemic, Milan Design Week is coming back in the full bloom Summer edition! It will be crazy! The desire of companies and creatives to take back the city in the best week of the year is palpable!

The traditional and historic districts will be present: Brera Design District, 5vie, Zona Tortona, Zona Durini/San Babila and Isola Design.

Palazzo Turati will host Masterly as always, in the courtyard of honor there will be the Luca Boscardin’s installation

However, there are some big changes such as Design Variations which after years at Palazzo Litta this edition will move and make it double: it will in fact be hosted at the Circolo Filologico Milanese (Via Clerici 10) and Palazzo Visconti (via Cino del Duca 8 – location not to be missed!). The magnificent rooms of Palazzo Litta will instead be the setting for Doppia Firma, the event that combines design and craftsmanship signed by the Cologni Foundation and Living – Corriere della Sera.

Another highly anticipated opening is Garage Traversi (Via Bagutta 2) which has just been renovated and which will host a new chapter of Louis Vuitton’s Objets Nomades.

At the last Fuorisalone, it was been certainly the revelation event: Alcova returns to the evocative spaces of the Military Hospital in Baggio (Milan). Atmospheres from other times and forgotten places will host contemporary design. A perfect match that always works for me!
Plus: Alcova opens to the public already on Sunday 5 June (11-19).

Fuorisalone 2022 will see two great news: Certosa Initiative, 10,000sqm former industrial spaces in the Viale Certosa area, where 150 designers and 70 exhibitors will exhibit combining emerging talents with established brands. The event is signed by Margriet Vollenberg, the Dutch soul of Ventura Lambrate!

The second new entry is Baranzate Ateliers which will be hosted in another former industrial space, in the former Necchi industries in Baranzate. 3.000sqm that will come alive even in the evening with drinks and music.
