MILANO DESIGN CITY 2020

The year 2020 is pushing us to build resilience and find ways of restarting, even in the context of a pandemic. Milan, the capital of fashion and design, has been hit hard by the coronavirus outbreak. Designers, artists and architects, however, are showing a great resilience.⁣
 ⁣⁣
Since September 28th, architecture and design studios, design galleries, artisan laboratories, design brands and creative agencies are taking part in the Milano Design City. The 2-weeks event, promoted by the City of Milan, is dedicated to the culture of design and innovation, with particular attention to the re-design of urban spaces, sustainability and circular economy.⁣⁣
 ⁣⁣
Tuesday we attended to RO GUILTLESS PLASTIC 2020, two combined exhibitions “We Are Nature” and “RO Plastic Prize 2020” curated by the renowned Milanese gallerist Rossana Orlandi.⁣⁣
 ⁣⁣
We Are Nature aims to promote an in-depth dialogue between design, technology and art with actors responsible for safeguarding nature, for an ethical and aesthetic coexistence between man and the planet.⁣⁣
 ⁣⁣
Ro Plastic Prize 2020, the international prize competition conceived by Orlandi and dedicated to the reuse and recycling of plastic – exhibits its second edition finalists and winners.⁣⁣
 ⁣⁣
We had the pleasure to meet Rossana Orlandi, and she was a real host explaining to us some of the exhibition highlights and calling our attention to the importance of responsibility and how she prefers to use this word instead of sustainability.⁣⁣


To Orlandi, sustainability became a buzzword, so she prefers responsibility as it includes everybody. We are all responsible and must understand the importance of recycling and reusing in our daily lives.⁣⁣
 ⁣⁣
The exhibitions reinforce her vision with works coming from all over the word: art pieces, design pieces from furniture to lighting, textile and dyes, craftwork and more all made with waste coming from various industries.⁣⁣
 ⁣⁣
If you are in Milan don’t miss the Ro Plastic Prize 2020 at Museo Scienza e Tecnologia Leonardo da Vinci, the exhibition will be on until October 4th. And if you are not in Milan, take a look at our Instagram highlights @somastudimilano and stay tuned!
