During the Salone del Mobile.Milano Shanghai (20 – 22 November 2019), INTERNI will present the design talk The new frontiers of entrepreneurship.
The event, organised together with INTERNI China, will examine the strategic and productive directions of Italian design and the ways in which it is perceived in Asian markets, especially in China which is now the seventh biggest market for Italian furniture exports (Source: Assarredo). The protagonists of the conversation, which will take place on Thursday 21 November at 3.3 pm at the Shanghai Exhibition Center (Dome Hall – Piazza Italiana), will be Yang Dongjiang (Editor-in-chief INTERNI China and professor at the Academy Art and Design Tsinghua University) Gilda Bojardi (editor-in-chief of INTERNI), Renato Minotti (Co-CEO, Minotti), Giulia Molteni (Head of Marketing and Communication, Molteni&C|Dada), Antony Margiasso (Head of Industrial Design, Pininfarina Shanghai), Maria Porro (Head of Marketing and Communication, Porro), Eleonore Cavalli (Visionnaire Art Director), Sammy Ren and Cathy Zhang (Founders, Domus Tiandi).
Italian Design Factories, the fifth volume in the INTERNI Serie Oro, dedicated to Italian companies, will receive its first presentation in Shanghai. The book ideally develops the narrative begun in 2014 with the celebratory volume marking the magazine’s 60th anniversary, followed, in 2016, by a collectors’ edition 500 Italian Design Icons Still in Production, and in 2017 by Icon Makers and in 2018 by Icon Architects.
“In a certain sense, this volume summarises and constitutes a global overview of the themes examined earlier,” explained Gilda Bojardi, editor-in-chief of INTERNI. “In fact, it is in the factories that we find the skills and the main players of the design system. And it is in the factories, in the sense of the locations of technical and cultural production, that the magic takes place that leads to ideas taking shape and being transformed into an object that has the power to move. Our focus is on all those situations in which the great tradition of Italian craftsmanship is renewed focus in a way that can be integrated into today’s most advanced industrial processes and seize the opportunities offered by digital technologies,” Bojardi concluded.
A total of 57 companies are presented by Italian Design Factories: each of them described through their specific distinctive characteristics, linked to history, architecture technological know-how, artisanal content and research. The volume will be completed in 2020, with the presentation of a selection of design excellence which, added to the first, will take us to 100 Italian Design Factories, in other words, the best of our furniture production, as well as accessories, coverings and materials for the domestic space. In 2021, by combining the two volumes, a final volume will be published, dedicated to the most representative companies from the world of Made in Italy, a book for collectors that aims to be a valuable resource for information for Italian and foreign operators who want to know all about the world’s best manufacturing industry. For this reason, a number of international presentations have been planned to talk about Italian know-how and its ability to continuously renew itself. After Shanghai the volume will also be presented in Miami – during Design Miami for which INTERNI is a media partner – on Wednesday 4 December at the Wolsfsonian Museum whit the collaboration of Italian Consulate General, and then in Dubai during Expo 2020.
Italian Design Factories, for which an extra print has been planned, will be available in three editions (Italian/English, English/Italian and Chinese/English) and will be distributed through major design showrooms in Miami, New York, London and Milan.
With 282 pages, Italian Design Factories will be available from 28 November on newsstands together with the December issue of the magazine at the price of €10 (including the magazine).

Milano, 20 September 2019 – INTERNI will take part in the fourth edition of Café della stampa organised as part of Cersaie 2019, the international ceramics fair for architecture and bathroom design, which will take place in Bologna from 23 to 27 September. For the occasion the interiors e contemporary design magazine of the Mondadori Group has organised an event to discuss the synergic relationship between the surface of a new building and the environmental context in which it is placed.
Ceramic identity. Surfaces and architectural design is the title of a lecture to be given by the Milanese architect Cino Zucchi, founder of the studio CZA Cino Zucchi Architetti. Zucchi – who has already used ceramics and brickwork in many designs, both for their aesthetic qualities and sustainability – says that contemporary architecture often operates in a historically stratified context, in which buildings are constructed for contexts that were very different from current ones. The role of contemporary architecture is to interpret today’s needs while respecting the multiplicity of styles with which it has to interact.
Ceramic identity. Surfaces and architectural design will take place on 25 September from 12 o’clock at the Café della stampa (Centro Servizi, Agorà dei Media) and the event will be introduced by Gilda Bojardi, editor-in-chief of INTERNI.

On the occasion of the big international boat shows in September 2019, INTERNI, the Mondadori Group magazine of interiors and contemporary design, presents a special OnBOARD edition entirely dedicated to boats and yachts.
“Thanks to research, technological innovation and the evolution of boat-builders tastes, elements of residential living space are migrating to the world of yachting,” declared Gilda Bojardi, editor of INTERNI. “as a result, yachts are increasingly similar to floating villas, furnished with style and products taken from home design. And this before considering that some of the best known names from the architectural world and residential design have migrated on-board, and collaboration between boat-builders and Italian design brands have become evermore frequent.”
The INTERNI OnBOARD special looks at both the incredible history of Italian boat-building and the stories of the designers of their amazing yachts; their latest designs and the results achieved in terms of stylistic forms, comfort, material and technological solutions, as well, of course, as performance. Special attention will focus on on-board design: the use in yachts of super-light and innovative materials, domestically produced indoor and outdoor furnishings, automation options, chef kitchens, fully equipped gyms and office space show the increasingly close link between nautical and residential design.
In September INTERNI recorded double-digit growth in advertising revenues compared with the same period of the previous year and confirmed its absolute leadership in the professional living segment.
INTERNI OnBoard will be available on newsstands along with the September issue of the magazine and will be distributed at Maison&Objet in Paris(6-10 September), the Cannes Yachting Festival (10-15 September), the Genoa Boat Show (19-24 September), the Monaco Yacht Show (25-28 September) and at selected showrooms of Italian design companies in New York, London and Miami.

“HOUSE IN MOTION” is the title of the much anticipated exhibition-event conceived by the monthly magazine INTERNI, and that with this edition celebrates its first 20 years (1998-2018).
With the patronage of the City of Milan, “HOUSE IN MOTION” will run during the FuoriSalone, from 16 to 28 April, the courts of the University of Milan, at the Orto Botanico in Brera and at the Audi City Lab in Corso Venezia 11 (formerly the Seminario Arcivescovile), where INTERNI has extended the reach of its urban animation initiatives.
The Mondadori Group magazine edited by Gilda Bojardi has called on leading protagonists from the world of Italian design and designers and architects of international standing to examine the theme of the “House in Motion”, in collaboration with companies, multinationals, start-ups and institutions. The result is an extraordinary collection of over 32 exhibits, from installations (18) and design islands (14), to micro-architecture and macro-objects, all site-specific, that combine to create a mosaic of forward-looking styles and visions.
The designs interpret issues related to living and mobility which, increasingly intersect and contaminate each other to generate new lifestyles. The home becomes a place that responds to the needs of those who inhabit it and adapts to their evolution; at the same time, places of transition, stopovers and work, such as means of transport, adopt the friendly and informal spirit of homes, in which technology has an increasingly decisive. It is an exchange that generates new behavioural models and unseen design solutions.
Massimo Iosa Ghini, with Italcer Group, has translated these ideas into a linear and open house of ceramic panels, set in the beautiful Cortile della Farmacia, equipped with special software that transforms it into a space for social interaction and sharing (Home Co-Thinking). The Peter Pichler Architecture studio, meanwhile, has given form to an almost spacy structure made entirely of wood (Future Space) in the centre of the Cortile d’Onore, a sort of six-pointed star of organic and dynamic form. Lorenzo Damiani along with Ikea Italia Retail has designed a ‘transportable’ house, with mysterious interiors to be explored, which demonstrates the ability of the Swedish company to accompany change (Searching for Infinity). Diego Grandi, celebrates the 80th anniversary of the magazine Grazia, an international point of reference in the world of fashion, with an installation inspired by the succession of arches along the portico of Largo Richini, that will host activities and events, an open, fun and emotional space, with free entry and liked to the outside, that reflects the spirit of the magazine (Infinity Hub, a wandering place).
Among the most significant international participants is the British studio Stanton Williams Architects that with Focchi Group presents ‘Baldacchino’, a luminous pavilion in metal and plexiglass pavilion which becomes a space for a dance performance, and, from Turkey, Tabanlioglu Architects that with Nurus are proposing housEmotion an archetypal structure with vibrating borders that represents the place of origin; from which we leave in pursuit of new experiences.
Among other things, designs will be on show by Dario Curatolo with Regione Puglia, Aba-Paolo Belardi and Daniela Gerini with Regione Umbria, Davide Rampello with Jiuquitang Co., Lissoni Associati with Elisabetta Illy and Stefano Guindani, Filippo Taidelli with Universal Selecta and Casalgrande Padana, Labics with Elica, Alexander Bellman with Samsung Electronics Italia and 14 other design islands.
“INTERNI HOUSE IN MOTION” also has two co-producers: Audi, the premium brand of the Volkswagen Group, and Eni Gas e Luce, a new company of Eni SpA for the retail sale of gas, electricity and energy solutions. Each of the main sponsors are presenting a high-impact installation, designed by internationally renowned architects and in dedicated locations: Mad Architects with Audi at the Audi City Lab, the former Seminario Arcivescovile in Corso Venezia 11, while Eni gas e luce with students from the SOS-School of Sustainability and Mario Cucinella Architects at the Orto Botanico in Brera.
Ma Yangsong from the Mad Architects Studio has designed for Audi an evocative ring of light (Fifth Ring) that hangs over and animates the courtyard of the palace in Corso Venezia 11, a mix of fog and reflections, a metaphor for the conjunction of innovation and the future, represented by on of the car manufacturer’s most surprising prototypes.
SOS-School of Sustainability and Mario Cucinella Architects meanwhile, brings the intangible beauty of energy behind the nature of the Orto Botanico in Brera, transforming the area into a smart city in which history lives alongside the most advanced urban models. Seven hundred small, well-lit and smart living units are the protagonists of an interactive space.
The music of R101, the official radio of “HOUSE IN MOTION”, will animate the evening of Friday 20 April with the music show R101 DUAL DIGITAL DJ SET featuring Aggness and Gerry Pulci while on Sunday 22, at the end of the first week of the exhibition and the FuoriSalone, an exclusive concert by the jazz pianist Danilo Rea.
The INTERNI system
In April the INTERNI integrated communication system is multiplied by six, underlining its role as the main source of information for the world of design. In fact, thanks to 4 print publications (INTERNI, INTERNI Panorama, the free press INTERNI King Size and the Guida FuoriSalone), a big event (“INTERNI HOUSE IN MOTION”) and INTERNI online (web site, app and social), the system offers tools that make it possible to be up to date in real time about trends, what’s new and previews related to the design world, making it an authentic vademecum for everyone who wants to find out about and find their way around an event that is unique in the world, the FuoriSalone.
The INTERNI system in numbers
With an appointment that gives to Milan a unique and exceptional level of visibility, the INTERNI system confirms its absolute leadership in the professional living segment with an 8.5% rise in advertising revenues, as well as in the communication of the design system, transforming itself from a sector-based publication to a mass media platform. The brand’s strength derives from the figures that the entire INTERNI ecosystem can boast on this occasion: 55,000 copies of INTERNI, 200,000 copies of INTERNI/Panorama, 120,000 copies of INTERNI King Size, 250,000 copies of the Guida FuoriSalone, a total print run over 625,000 copies, with more than 4,000,000 readers and around 1,200 pages.
Further proof can also be seen on the territory: in fact, an important street advertising campaign is foreseen for “HOUSE IN MOTION” that includes banners in 15 locations in the centre of Milan, 1,000 flags for around 500 events, 10 shuttle bus retros, as well as totems, decorated newsstands, floor-graphics, station domination (Rho and Cadorna), windows and led walls (Megastore Mondadori in Piazza del Duomo and the Rizzoli Store in Galleria Vittorio Emanuele).
