Alcova -Milan Design Week 21

curated by Valentina Ciuffi and Joseph Grima 

Founded in 2018, Alcova is an itinerant platform for independent design. With its fifth edition coming up, Alcova continues its exploration of the city of Milan with an exciting new location - the former Porta Vittoria abattoir on Via Molise.

Today in a state of disuse but poised for a radical and permanent transformation, the area will be activated by Alcova in an interstitial phase. The platform conceived by Valentina Ciuffi (founder of Studio Vedèt) and Joseph Grima (founder of Space Caviar) once again brings design and research into dialogue with surprising and historically significant urban settings, entering into a temporary relationship of cohabitation with nature that has grown wild and spontaneously taken over these imposing sites.
