[Consul General of Italy in Hong Kong] Venice, Milan and Verona hosted in April major international events focused on art, design and wine
Venice, Milan and Verona hosted in April major international events focused on art, design and wine. New ideas, new projects and new synergies and many visitors from Hong Kong and Macau.

“Amazing visit to ‘the Olympics” of the art world!”

“From humble beginnings to a global phenomenon, the Salone del Mobile di Milano has transformed. Once a gathering for Italian furniture makers and dealers, it’s now a leading international event showcasing contemporary furniture, kitchens, lighting, interior design, and lifestyle trends. The fair itself isn’t confined to the Rho Fiera exhibition center anymore. The entire city of Milan becomes a vibrant hub for contemporary design, art installations, and everything in between. This fusion attracts not only established design professionals and businesses, but also design enthusiasts and tourists.
This year, a notable shift emerged. After nearly 30 years of attending the Salone del Mobile, I observed a clear focus on attracting younger audiences. The designs themselves seemed to cater to a new generation of users and design professionals, potentially developing the future tastemakers of the industry”.

“Vinitaly is more than just an Italian wine show. Inspiring wine technology and designs, fascinating hidden gems, meeting face-to-face with top producers, and learning from the best in the industry through masterclasses — it’s an unparalleled experience filled with business opportunities, all in one go.”
