Type: Manifestation

A unique event for design lovers: a major exhibition, a showcase for young talents, meetings, debates and events.

MEET DESIGN is a yearly event. For the first edition, RCS has selected Rome and Turin, two important cities in the Italian cultural scenario, as well as two historical capitals. From September 15 to October 15, 2011 MEET DESIGN will take place at the Mercati di Traiano in Rome, a world-unique archaeological site; it is, in fact, a “district” that went through the city’s evolution from the imperial age to our time, constantly reused and transformed: from strategic administrative centre of the Imperial Fora to a noble mansion to a military fortress to a prestigious location for a monastery to a military camp... in a continuous transformation, which can be seen from the architectural changes and from the signs of the different “hands” that adjusted the venue in time according to its functions to start, in our own time, a new “season” of its life.
This year's edition of MEET DESIGN is articulated in three sections: Meet Show, Meet Talents and Meet People.
