Milan Design Week 2024 – City Centre

by Marta Bellacosa.

The city of Milan, from April 15 to 21, 2024, is once again enriched with events, exhibitions, new collections, and installations spread throughout the city center. Ideas and projects are embraced within showrooms and historic locations, such as the well-known headquarters of the University of Milan, one of the first Renaissance buildings in Milan and now a meeting point for people of all ages and tastes.

Design Week is thus an opportunity for knowledge and unity between what has been and what will be: during this period, the historic urban heritage meets the innovations of today and tomorrow. The Centro district includes: Piazza San Babila, Via Durini, Corso Monforte, Corso Europa, Via Larga, and Via Manzoni, extending to the adjacent areas near the Brera and 5Vie districts. It is the main destination for local visitors, easily accessible via public transport: metro, tram, or bus.
