Milano Design Weekend: discovering "Hidden Milan"

Vico Magistretti,




Milano Design Week,

"Milano Segreta" (“Hidden Milan”) is a project by the P.P.C. Order of Architects of the Province of Milan encouraging people to discover little-known spots in the city through architecture and design itineraries.

The perfect occasion for discovering "Hidden Milan" is the second Milano Design Weekend, coming up October 6 to 9 2011.

During the event, P.P.C. Order of Architects of the Province of Milan has organised open days during which visitors may tour the studios of Milan's architects and designers, and two architecture itineraries for discovery of little-known spots in the city.

The first, presented by Maria Vittoria Capitanucci, focuses on architects who worked in the city in the '50s and '60s and includes residential buildings by Giulio Minoletti, Luigi Ghò and Vito and Gustavo Latis.

The second itinerary, presented by Fulvio Irace and Federico Ferrari, focuses on Milanese architect and designer Vico Magistretti and includes the Piazza San Marco Complex, the residential building in Via Conservatorio, the headquarters of the Magistretti Foundation and the office building in Corso Europa.
