Enjoy Public Design Festival while in Milan - LateRooms.com
March 21, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel NewsLateRooms.com can reveal that Milan is the setting for the Public Design Festival, which is likely to entice plenty of hip cats to the city to discover what is new in the field.
From April 13th to 18th, the Piazza XXIV Maggio will become a hotbed of ideas, debate and workshops relating to the world of design, discussing the challenges and opportunities that exist in urban space.
One of the most eagerly anticipated parts of the festival actually takes place in an ordinary parking lot and invites applications from international candidates.
The Duepercinque competition sees a parking area converted into a work of art by professional artists or students.
For younger or more energetic travellers, another highlight could be the closing party, which this year takes place in the Bicocca Hangar.
As well as the permanent installation that is housed there - Anselm Kiefer's The Seven Heavenly Places - the 18,000 square metre building will boast art experiments, music, videos and many more features.
The aim is to celebrate public space until the early hours, when people in attendance can slink back to their Milan hotels to recover.
It is free to get in to the festival, so anyone interested in design has no excuse not to check out the event.
To make the most of the Public Design Festival – you should consider booking your hotel Milano to avoid disappointment.
