Milan Design Week 2019: why 5VIE district is worth visiting

Today we’re talking about one of the top locations whenever Milan Design Week comes around: we’re talking about the 5vie district, known as a cultural stronghold in the heart of Milan.

In this article, we’re pretty much talking about one of the oldest but also emerging districts of Milan. Named after the 5 streets that form this area, ironically this area could still be considered one of Milan’s least tourist populated areas despite being one of the richest districts of the city in cultural heritage as well as a popular place for a tour during Milan Design Week.

What’s so impressive about this area? The fact that every year it’s a relevant spot during Milan Design Week with full circuits of workshops, crafts, galleries, shops, and showrooms. However this project also aims to promote the old town of Milan, so every year they also include a big cultural itinerary featuring archaeological sites, churches, cloisters, museums, and breathtaking inner courtyards.

As a matter of fact, if you go to the official website of 5VIE you can see for yourself that they have a complete map with many relevant spots within the area in categories such as Artisanal, Cultural, Shopping, Gastronomy and many more. This is an area with a lot to see during Milan Design Week.

When it comes to the category of Shopping, our highlight in this article goes to Alson Gallery. This is truly the example of a space that moves between the ages presenting us with a multifaceted and versatile gallery filled with the magic of past art. Among the objects you can see in this space there are the nineteenth-century marble busts, the neo-classical furnishings and also jewels that range from Art Deco period to today, featuring names such as Boucheron, Cartier, David Webb, Harry Winston, Van Cleef & Arpel’s, and even Tiffany.

Take a moment to enjoy some of the highlights of Milan Design Week 2019

In the Culture part, you definitely have to check out Museo Mangini Bonomi. It’s set in an elegant palace with five floors where you can check out some vintage Milanese furniture as well as other relevant objects of the time such as trunks, playing cards, fans, weapons, games, among others. This is a wonderful house museum you have to visit if you want to see what Milan was like in the past.

Lastly, when it comes to Artisanal, our attention was caught by the work of Daniela De Marchi. This Milanese jewelry designer started her own business in 2010 and opened her first atelier/showroom, a few steps away from The Duomo. Her pieces are made with bronze, brass, silver (gold on demand) and natural stones forming them with a lost wax casting technique. The Jewels are very popular in the Italian, European and Japanese market and more than a representation of Italian design they represent an identity mark.
