I Saloni Milan Goes to New York | Exhibition
This special series of exhibitions and events honoring Italian Design will inaugurate a yearlong worldwide celebration of the 50th Anniversary of I Saloni, known familiarly in the U.S. as the Milan Furniture Fair.
I Saloni, or the Salone Internazionale del Mobile ,widely recognized as the world’s largest and most important annual exposition of international design with over 300,000 visitors annually, will mark its anniversary during the fair, next April.
“We are thrilled to share such beautiful expressions of Italian creativity and culture with the City of New York. As the creative capital of the world, we could think of no better place to begin our yearlong celebration of Italian Design,” said Carlo Guglielmi, President of COSMIT.
Prominent shop window banners will identify the 20 showrooms on the “circuit” to guide visitors on their walking tour of “hot spots” of Italian Design throughout the city. The celebrations in New York aim to promote the same, starting with the most visible offering of Italian design: furniture showrooms. These showrooms will host an "Italian Christmas" with special events (tba) from November 29th through January 8th.
