OPEN TALKS on the Salone del Mobile Sep 5th – 10th, 2021

As Salone del Mobile surges ahead post lock-down, creatives, innovators, entrepreneurs, artists and politicians will bring their invaluable ideas and experiences to the Open Talks at supersalone. In a bid to (re)build a world we want to live in (for the better). Once we’ve taken on board the fact that we live in transitory and unstable situations that call for constantly changing solutions, it becomes manifestly clear that it is only by discussing the present – jointly, blurring the lines between disciplines and looking ourselves squarely in the eye again – can we build a (hopefully) better future. This is the hope and the aim of the talks, lectures and conversations that will bring the six days of supersalone at the Rho Milan Fairgrounds alive. 
A programme put together by Maria Cristina Didero will focus on the great contemporary issues with which design, art, architecture, education, gender, the circular economy, environmental impact, the relationship between project and curation and much more besides have to contend. These debates will fuel the imagination, heart and mind with words – well-informed words, obviously – that will help us reflect on the fragility of our planet and on how creativity, research, knowledge and inclusion can enable us to overcome this difficult period in history.
In the stunning setting of the arenas, one in each pavilion, the Open Talks will allow the masters of today and tomorrow to have their say. The general public will have an opportunity to meet not just internationally renowned architects and designers, but also artists, chefs, intellectuals, politicians and businesspeople, who will discuss their own experiences in a multidisciplinary, holistic and kaleidoscopic approach. They include many illustrious names: from Humberto Campana to Bjarke Ingels, Hans Ulrich Obrist to Carsten Höller, Alejandro Aravena to Michele de Lucchi, Beatriz Colomina to Cecilia Alemani, Formafantasma to Philippe Malouin, Cristina Bowerman to Davide Oldani.
