On Monday the 9th starts the Milan design week ; one of the biggest event of the year in Milan. The entire week is dedicated to the design: the showroom and brands organize some exhibitions and animations to present their work.
Nowadays, every business tries to participate to this dynamic event so fashion brands and food companies create some partnerships with designer and presents nice combined projects!
Everything is free; but the access to some parties is reserved to professionals.
Do not worry, you will not even notice since there is a lot to do : there will be more than 900 events during the week !!Obviously I can not quote them all !
What is best to do for you is either look on the official websites and select what you would like to see either choose an area and just walk around; going where you are inspired!
The two most popular ones are Brera; which will particularly be animated on Friday night with the “Brera district night” and the famous via Tortona (behind the metro Porta Genova), where there are a lot of showrooms.
Even if you are not a big fan of design; you should have a look because the city is very dynamic at this period and there are a lot of nice events of all kind!
I am sure you can find something you’ll like! But let me warn you: it will be very very crowdy!
