Diary of a trip to Milan

European trip made by the Master of Product Design Labs 2018

Once again this year, in April, Milan becomes (even more so) the Italian capital of trends, design and fashion with a new edition of the "Salone Internazionale del Mobile". An unmissable event for the students of the Master of Product Design Labs.

The city overflows with inspiration in each of its districts, where students visited art galleries, shops, exhibitions and museums. An opportunity to discover innovative projects, broaden their vision of design and make contact with renowned professionals in the sector.

An itinerary linked to the latest design proposals, with lectures by experts such as Marco Vicinanza and Sigurdur Thorsteinsson - Partner Chief Creative Officer at Design Group Italia –. Undoubtedly, a source of infinite inspiration that introduced the designers to the future trends in product design.
