2019 Theme
Grand'Italia (?)

Italy still holding a record in the design field: from the personalities that made its history, to the schools of excellence and historic companies. While abroad design is no longer just a product but more and more an intangible project, thought and process, in Italy design is struggling to renew its self-generation ability and that of exchange between visionary designers and illuminated entrepreneurs, as well as to develop a design culture shared at national level, with subsequent difficulties standing out as nation-system in some of today’s key sectors such as A.I., Sustainability, Service Design and Design for All.

Is our country a "Grand’Italia” then?
Could it be so again?
When and at what price?

Today more than ever it is essential to standardise and do networking, trying not to isolate the country in anti-economic, poorly productive and – let’s face it – extremely boring dynamics. Let’s have some fun at least.


The Brera Design Days 2019 take place in 8 main locations that will host the talks and workshops dedicated to various topics. Besides these locations the programme will involve the main showrooms of the Brera Design District



Two different guests every night will discuss about a design book, conceived and written not only for insiders but capable of making us reflect on the various aspects of a project.
