What is in store for Milan in 2018
Fashion and art and all things nice: that is what’s in store for Milan in 2018. The calendar is simply overflowing with events, so let’s take a closer look.
January 12-15 – Men’s Fashion Week – At the last Fashion Week, in June 2017, the overall takeaway was that designers were ignoring trends and proposing what they do best. We will see in a few days if such attitude is confirmed also for the Fall/Winter 2018 collections. Follow live events here.
February 21-27 – Milan’s Fashion Week – The woman collection fashion shows are the most awaited moment of the international fashion system.
March 2-4 – Museocity will turn Milan into a mega arts centre with extended opening hours, special exhibitions and children’s workshops. And 15 extraordinary venues, such as artist ateliers and designer and architect studios, will be open to curious visitors.
April 9-15 – Art Week – An extensive programme of events, inaugurations and special openings all revolving around Miart, the fair dedicated to contemporary art.
April 17-22 – Design Week – If Edinburgh International Festival is accompanied by the exuberant Fringe Festival, Milan’s Salone del Mobile is matched with the Fuorisalone, possibly the world’s most important date with design. Created from grassroots and organized by the municipal districts, during the Salone del Mobile it transforms the city into an exciting collective design event with entire urban areas transformed by temporary exhibitions.
May 18-20 – Pianocity – The annual peaceful invasion of pianos: over 400 concerts, piano lessons, tributes to great Masters and debut performances, often in unconventional places.
June 4-10 – Photo Week – At its second edition, a week full of exhibitions, meetings, guided tours, workshops and openings.
September 17-23 – Movie Week – Screenings right across the city in collaboration with Milano FIlm Festival; a whirlwind of exhibitions and special events in cinemas, plus, meetings with actors and directors
November 8-10 – Bookcity – Over 1000 events, both for bookworms and accidental readers.
And even more is yet to come!
