ove Design®, the biannual event organized by the Comitato Lombardia of the AIRC Foundation for cancer research in collaboration with ADI, will be held from November 1-7, 2021 in its first digital edition.

All the products will be on sale at special prices and can be seen on the site www.lovedesign.airc.it and will finance 3 three-year scholarships for young researchers (each with a value of €75,000 ). In addition to the most well-known brands, this year there are also various personalities from design, fashion and theatre who decided to throw in their support for this initiative and spread the word by posing for an ad hoc campaign.
