It will be open to the public from Tuesday, April 16 to Sunday, April 21, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. The focus is the collaboration between important international designers and some of the best master artisans of the "Great Milan": not only the world capital of design, fashion and art, but also the cradle of artistic crafts and applied arts. In fact, Milan has historically been home to important craft activities. In particular, the city has reached in history and maintains today very high levels in the manufacture of silver, wood, leather, upholstery, metals, glass, ceramics... all sectors happily represented by the master artisans of excellence called to collaborate in Doppia Firma 2024 with some stars of contemporary design. An enhancement of creativity through urban high manufacturing, expressed in fifteen iconic objects created ad hoc for Doppia Firma.
