The 60th edition of the Salone del Mobile.Milano will again venture beyond the confines of the fairground and into the city. Starting June 7, a monumental site-specific film installation will feature in Palazzo Reale’s Sala Delle Cariatidi. A collection of 11 films d’auteur by 11 leading Italian filmmakers covering 11 themes that have always been present in Salone’s DNA will be screened. Each filmmaker took a term from the Manifesto and interpreted it in their imitable style, turning it into a short film. Francesca Archibugi has taken on the word Emotion, Pappi Corsicato – Enterprise, Davide Rampello – Quality, Wilma Labate – Design, Bruno Bozzetto – Networking, Luca Lucini – Communication, Claudio Giovannesi – Culture, Gianni Canova and a team of film students from the IULM University – Young People, Donato Carrisi – Ingenuity, Daniele Ciprì – Milan, and lastly, Stefano Mordini – Know How.
