Annual Italy Events
- International Furniture Show
- 17 Apr
- Fiera Milano Rho - Milan
- Trade Fairs and Expos
The International Furniture Show or Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan has grown in importance and size since it's inception in 1961 to be the one furniture fair that furniture buyers and designers from all over the world never miss. For a week from mid April, the city becomes a force-field of good taste and style due to the fact that Milan is a city full of creators and industrialists, designers and manufacturers, and people who keep their thumb on the pulse of international trends in modern furniture design.
But people in the business know that it's really the 180 or so parallel events outside the evirons of the show itself (most of them taking place in the posh Brera neighborhood) that really make or break new designers. The creative throb of the show spawns a gala of exhibitions, meetings, shows and entertainment that transform Milan into a center of creativity and style.
Italy is the biggest exporter of artistic goods in the world today with about 70% of the credit going to products related to fashion and design. This phenomenon has transformed Milan into the most dependable international showroom of these two sectors. In addition, the adaptability and flexibility that characterize the whole area justify the city's claim to be the innovation and design capital of the world.
