A captivating open-air cinema nestled in the charming Giardino di Alik

After its premiere in Barcelona, the groundbreaking phygital (physical and digital) platform named Terrasza, which focuses on outdoor design, will make an appearance at Milano Design Week, scheduled from April 15 to 21.

Following its inaugural event last October in Barcelona, where TERRASZA BCN 2023 launched a network of showrooms and events in partnership with notable brands like Artemide, Gandía Blasco, Nanimarquina, iSiMAR, Point, Agora, HOUE, Potocco, Cubiñá, and KSAR Living, TERRASZA is now expanding its collaborations to include various Italian and European brands for its Milan edition.

Situated in the scenic Giardino di Alik, home to the Centro Artistico Alik Cavaliere on via Edmondo de Amicis 17, TERRASZA MILAN 2024 is set in the dynamic core of Milan’s 5VIE district. This district, renowned for its rich blend of design and art, forms the ideal setting for the event.
