Welcome to the epicentre of creativity, innovation, and design excellence – Milan Design Week. Steeped in a tradition of architectural and artistic prowess, this annual event transforms Milan into a dynamic playground where visionaries worldwide converge to celebrate the intersection of aesthetics and functionality.
As the global hub of design, Milan opens its doors to many exhibitions, installations, talks, and experiences that push the boundaries of imagination. From the prestigious Salone del Mobile to the buzzing streets adorned with captivating installations, Milan Design Week is a journey into the heart of design evolution, where each corner promises inspiration, discovery, and the harmonious fusion of form and concept.
Embark on this exhilarating adventure, where design’s past, present, and future unite in a symphony of innovation, leaving an indelible mark on those fortunate enough to partake in this design pilgrimage.
While the Milan Design Week is scheduled for 16-21 April 2024, it’s a good time to revisit some of our past experiences and evoke the memories of Milan’s favourite drink.
Milan is known for its vibrant culture, fashion, cuisine, and the Milan Design Week. Some popular drinks we enjoyed during our last visit to Milan include:
Aperol Spritz: A classic Italian aperitif made with Aperol, prosecco, and soda water. It’s refreshing and often enjoyed before a meal.
Negroni: A cocktail made with equal parts of gin, Campari, and sweet vermouth. It’s known for its bitter and complex flavours.
Espresso: Italy, including Milan, is famous for its coffee culture. Espresso is an intense and concentrated coffee often enjoyed as a quick pick-me-up.
Caffè Shakerato: A chilled coffee drink made by shaking espresso with ice and simple syrup. It’s a popular choice during the warmer months.
Limoncello: While limoncello is more associated with Southern Italy, you can still find this lemon-flavoured liqueur in Milan as a refreshing after-dinner drink.
Wine: Italy is renowned for its wine production, and Milan offers a variety of local and Italian wines to enjoy.Chinotto: A bitter citrus soda that’s popular in Italy. It has a unique flavour and is often enjoyed as a non-alcoholic option.
As the summer goes by, we have less than a year for the upcoming Milan Design Week 2024. The city’s streets will soon echo with the resonance of creativity and vision, from the awe-inspiring exhibitions that captivate our senses to the thought-provoking discussions that often ignite our intellect.
Until we meet again on this grand stage of innovation, let’s continue to shape a world where imagination and design intertwine, creating a tapestry of beauty, functionality, and boundless inspiration. And, of course, enjoy some refreshing Milan drinks while we wait. Grazie mille, Milan Design Week – see you soon!
