With the upcoming week of Fuorisalone 2015, from14‐19 April 2015, Milan Design Agenda will spot its eyes at the Brera Design District. The district is the creative business core of Milan; it extends along Bastioni di Porta Nuova to Via Broletto, along Via Legnano to Via Montenapoleone, sharing the perimeter of Brera’s DUC’s (Urban Business Districts). Last year the Brera Design District totalized over 136 events attended by 140 thousand visitors! What about that to attend at Milan Design Week 2015!

Heartened by this great result, this year it will offer a non‐stop calendar of events and a format featuring: a themed topic, the Design Lessons Award, a series of meetings, special projects and cultural events. This year’s ambassadors: designer Luca Nichetto, hosting three events in Brera, artist Patrick Tuttofuoco with his installation in Piazzetta Brera and the architecture firm Piuarch, based in Via Palermo, introducing the project “Milan and its gardens”.

According to Luca Nichetto, Brera Design District, “It’s Fuorisalone’s most interesting area, for its centers everything in the heart of Milan (…) not just because i’m interested in creating an event, but because i really want the public to feel climate and the atmosphere created by the entire district…”

In continuation of last year, the Brera Design District presents the second edition of the Design Lessons Award, dedicated to he/she who best interpreted the values standing at the base of the topic chosen. For Project Formation Identity the award goes to Martino Gamper, a designer whose work integrates art, design and handicraft. Gamper distinguished himself for his unique planning ability, for having transferred a deep knowledge of the history of design into his original creations, by translating the project‐based culture in a well defined identity.
