Bologna Design Week is a cultural event aimed at mapping the creativity spread over the territory, through a collaborative approach between institutions, enterprises, designers, universities, research companies, associations and privates. An activity strategical to a territory featuring production excellences in many sectors (from packaging to ceramic, from car to textile industry, from education to food and wellness) and expressing itself not only through product design, but also and mainly in the B2B world, by creating industrial products, technologies, services, design processes and communication plans. The initiative aims to merge and tell multifarious design experiences, by realising an event that is meeting point between the research world and the production world and highlights their creative geographies.
The event provides four main seats (Galleria Cavour, Campogrande Concept, Corte Isolani and Atelier Corradi), a programme thick with workshops, happenings, talks, meetings with companies, institutions, firms and personalities from the design sector and eight thematic itineraries with stands by great brands such as Flos, Molteni & C Dada, Kartell, Fritz Hansen and Vitra.

Campogrande Concept will host workshops, talks and expositions. Corte Isolani will be instead reserved to the Design Food section, providing tastes, workshops and exhibits dedicated to the preparation, elaboration, transportation and preservation of food. The subject matter is put on show within the exhibit “Maybe a new way” curated by Accademia di Belle Arti, while Fashion loves Food will offer a reading of the relationship between fashion and food, curated by the Course of Cultures and Fashion Techniques of Bologna’s University.
