FuoriSalone 2022: great success for the “Interni Design Re-generation” exhibition

Around 300,000 visitors to Milan “Università degli Studi”, the Brera Botanical Garden and the Audi House of Progress in Piazza Cordusio
INTERNI confirms its outright leadership in the professional living segment and in design system communication

Great success for INTERNI Design Re-Generation at the 2022 FuoriSalone. From 6 to 13 June, the event created and coordinated by the Mondadori Group magazine edited by Gilda Bojardi attracted a total of approximately 300,000 visitors in the three institutional locations: Milan “Università degli Studi”, the Brera Botanical Garden and the Audi House of Progress, for the first time at Palazzo Medelan in Piazza Cordusio.

“This year once again, Milan succeeded in involving an international public in a spectacular across-the-board happening people are determined not to miss,” said INTERNI editor Gilda Bojardi. “Revealing its most secret places and buildings, it turned into a city-wide museum featuring projects and design initiatives whose cultural and experimental dynamism pushed the boundaries of the trade show.”

This edition of the exhibition looked at the regeneration of thought and design, with experimental installations on such important questions as: the new sustainability aesthetic, nature in the city, artificial intelligence for innovative design and a new future through greater design awareness.

With the contribution of the 3 co-producers (Audi, Eni-Plenitude and Whirpool) and in collaboration with companies and institutions, INTERNI called over 50 great Italian and international -designers and architects. Over 40 installations, micro-architectures and macroobjects have been created for the exhibition, all site-specific which – together with conferences, talks and live performances – have created a variegated mosaic of styles and visions, but also moments of confrontation, attracting thousands of people. Visitors included large numbers of Italian and international journalists, who provided excellent coverage for INTERNI Design Re-Generation in the daily papers, on radio and TV, in the trade press and in popular magazines, and ensured a continuous presence for the exhibition on the main social channels and the web.

The INTERNI exhibition confirms its place as the iconic  event of the FuoriSalone, created as an initiative of the magazine’s editor, Gilda Bojardi. The foundation of its success is the outstanding design and cultural content of the installations, the internationally famous brands involved, flanked by smaller operations who also offered exhibits of great interest.

The exceptional response from both the public and the media reflects the absolute leadership of INTERNI in the professional living segment and in design system communication.

FuoriSalone 2021: huge success for the “INTERNI Creative Connections” exhibition

More than 180,000 visitors at the University of Milan, the Orto Botanico di Brera and the Audi City Lab in Via della Spiga

With this event INTERNI confirms its absolute leadership in the professional living segment and design system communication

Huge success for the INTERNI Creative Connections exhibition at the FuoriSalone 2021. From 4 to 19 September, the event recorded a total of over 180,000 visitors at the three main locations: the quads of the University of Milan, the Orto Botanico di Brera and – until 27 September – the Audi City Lab, for the first time in Via della Spiga 26.

The Mondadori Group magazine, edited by Gilda Bojardi invited leading Italian players from the design world, along with international architects and designers to translate into experimental installations the concepts of care, sustainability and mobility. With the contributions of 2 co-producers (Audi and Eni) and in collaboration with companies and institutions almost thirty site-specific installations, micro-architecture and macro-objects were produced which – along with conferences and talks – created a varied mosaic of styles and visions, as well as moments of exchange that attracted thousands of people. These included a great many Italian and international journalists who gave INTERNI Creative Connections outstanding media coverage – from national newspapers to radio and television, the specialised press, and mass-market publications – as well as ensuring continuous presence on the main social media and web channels.

The Internimagazine.it website saw a +50% increase in unique users compared with the previous period and the reinforcement of the range of social media activities – with the generation of over 650 posts, each with an average of 70,000 profiled followers – led to a doubling of the total reach compared with previous figures.

The INTERNI exhibition was consequently confirmed as the symbolic event of the FuoriSalone – which this year marked its 30th anniversary – created in 1990 on the initiative of Gilda Bojardi, the magazine’s editor. Underlying this success is the high level cultural and design element of the installations, the prestigious Italian and international brands involved, as well as the many smaller players who have equally contributed to the creation of content of value.

The exceptional feedback, both from the public and in terms of media visibility, testifies to INTERNI’s absolute leadership in the professional living segment and design system communication, and, as Gilda Bojardi underlined, “It was also a strong signal for Milan and for a vibrant sector – that of design – which proposes and produces, and which has never given up. Indeed, thanks to the events, presentations, conferences, live and virtual debates, new proposals and collections and the displays in the showrooms, new spaces and museums set up for the occasion, this FuoriSalone was truly a unique and unforgettable occasion.”

  • With this event INTERNI confirms its absolute leadership in the professional living segment and design system communication

A record number of visitors for the INTERNI HOUSE IN MOTION exhibition at the 2018 FuoriSalone. From 16 to 28 April, in the courtyards of the Università degli Studi di Milano, at the Orto Botanico di Brera and the Audi City Lab in Corso Venezia 11 (the former Seminario Arcivescovile), where, for the second year in a row, the magazine extended the reach of its urban animation, there was a more than 60% increase in visitors compared with the 2017 edition, reaching close to 400,000 at the three locations.

Marking the 20th year of the exhibition, 32 projects were presented, of which 18 installations and 14 design islands, with the contribution of 2 co-producers (Audi and Eni gas e luce), 32 partner companies, 4 institutions (Regione Umbria, Regione Puglia, Apex Brasil, Orticola di Lombardia), and 40 designers (including architectural studios, architects, designer, artists, as well as a specialist school).

This extraordinary response, both in terms of audience and media visibility, is a clear demonstration of the absolute leadership of the magazine edited by Gilda Bojardi in the professional living segment and design system communication.

“The theme of our exhibition event, now in its 20th edition, invites visitors to explore the double soul of the design: on the one hand the universe of actual production, which with materials – wood, ceramics, metals, plastics and natural fibres – constitutes the physical essence of design; and, on the other, the immaterial dimension of creation, starting from the thinking of the designer, increasingly supported by digital technologies and upcoming virtual reality, who identifies the areas of research for the near future,” explained Gilda Bojardi, editor of INTERNI. “In creating these experimental and interactive installations, we work with leading companies in the field of innovation and research, with companies representing internationally established brands and small niche producers that support entrepreneurship and creativity,” the magazine’s editor concluded.

Co-producer of the initiative is Audi, the premium brand of the Volkswagen Group, which at the Audi City Lab, in Corso Venezia 11, presents with INTERNI a series of meetings entitled the Future Needs Stories. The spaces of the former Seminario Arcivescovile, the gate to which will be illuminated by an installation created by Ingo Maurer, will host discussions about the relationship between man and artificial intelligence along with the presentation of the  installation Sonic Pendulum by Yuri Suzuki.
