From 4 to 9 April Milan will go into party mode for one of the world’s largest exhibitions of furniture and fittings from top global designers: The Milan International Furniture Exhibition, also known as the Salone, has become the largest and most important event of its kind in the world. Over the past years it has shown consistent growth, both in the number of exhibitors and in the number of visitors. In 2017 the Salone will again take place at the Milan Fair Grounds in Rho. Two biennials will be back. One is Euroluce, a vast showcase of lighting equipment. The other is the Salone Ufficio, the exhibition of office equipment and integrated workplace solutions.
Reserved for trade members every day from morning to afternoon, the Salone is open to the public on Saturday and Sunday with an entrance ticket. Fuorisalone is the set of events distributed in different areas of Milan on the same days when the Salone Internazionale del Mobile takes place. The Fuorisalone recognizes three main districts: Brera, Tortona, Lambrate. The Fuorisalone is not a Fair event, it doesn’t have a central organisation and it’s not managed by any Institution. Currently, it is expanding into many related sectors including automotive, technology, telecommunications, art, fashion and food. Salone and Fuorisalone define the Milan Design Week, the most important event in the world for design.
