nterno Milanese: a story and a tribute to visit. This is an expositive and cultural project for the city of Milan, created from a joint idea between Zanotta, a key player in Italian design history and Salvioni, a renowned network of top-level interior design showrooms that above all specialises in “Made in Italy” design.
The exposition is held in via Durini, the Milanese epicentre of the showrooms of the historic interior design brands, in the early twentieth century building that houses Salvioni Design Solutions. Once again, the showroom’s second floor was chosen as a backdrop for a project dedicated to the city. Interno Milanese is the ideal apartment, a sequence of settings, a “complete lifestyle” in which living room, dining room, music room, study and bedroom come to life thanks to the furniture by Zanotta, chosen from the brand’s iconic pieces and its latest collections. The masterpieces created by Achille Castiglioni for Zanotta and Flos too, who oversees the space’s lighting, rule over pieces by Marco Zanuso, Gae Aulenti, Piero Bottoni, Enzo Mari, De Pas – D’Urbino – Lomazzi, Gabriele Mucchi and Ettore Sottsass.
These two giants of the world of design are flanked by the work of the Milanese illustrator and architect Carlo Stanga, a crucial name on the international communication scene. His elegant, light hearted views of Milan hung on the walls, chosen from the 60 plates that were created for the volume I am Milan published by Moleskine, this opens illustrated windows on the city.
The gigantic version of the view of piazza Duomo and the Galleria with the boundaries of the metropolis is put on display on the living room’s main wall, transformed in wallpaper by WallPepper.
For the design addicts as well as all the people who want to discover the city’s distinctive style, metropolitan living or find inspiration for the interiors of tomorrow, there’s time until the end of January to visit this unmissable Interno Milanese.
