The Circuito Lombardo Musei Design proposes a marathon of initiatives curated by Claudio Palvarini and Lodovico Gualzetti.
The event involves twenty-seven museums, archives and museum studios that represent an important segment of the history of design.
The exhibition "A journey into the country of design" through 18 meters of images and texts illustrates each reality, the territory and the places of culture located in it.
Among the numerous events, the "Unique objects" cycle presents 15 curators, who tell about "objects never seen" also shown in the exhibition. In the “Telling and telling oneself,” meetings, another 11 archives are narrated through the texts of young authors, read by two actors. The curators will also present their archive and their "unique object".
The spaces of the Agorà, in addition to the talks, host two evenings of "Video Design", with important and curious historical projections, interviews, corporate videos and advertising.
