From Milan, I Saloni 2010

The Fiera area, only 20 minutes by underground from the center of the city, a futuristic expansive complex designed by Massimiliano Fuksas studio of architecture.
I will start slowly to describe the Design Week in Milan, where every day there were dozens of events and opening of new stores. We spent three intense days at the Fiera and the other days we wondered day and night around the city for the Fuori Salone events.

The city was dressed for the occasion, with design and art installations everywhere, a feast for the eye and an inspiration for the mind.
Above is Via Montenapoleone (our Fifth Avenue) adorned with linen shades, lit at night for a magic effect.

Even the weather behaved, only a day of rain, mostly warm and sunny the whole week, even after the eruption of the Icelandic volcano...
