IN THE ROSSANA GARDEN, THE PLASTIC IS GREEN
Join the queue to enter the Rossana Orlandi Master Gallery on Via Bandello, as per the script. Make sure you take a moment to relax under the bar’s pergola in the magnificent secret garden, where this year the green of the climbers blends with “Guiltless Plastic”, the recycled plastic to which RO Guiltless Plastic is dedicated, a project conceived together with the designer’s daughter, Nicoletta Orlandi Brugnoni. Inside, discover the multifaceted and international interpretation of what plastic can become when it stops being waste: furniture, tableware, fashion, sculpture.

DimoreStudio blends history and contemporaneity with elegant irreverence. Intriguingly, the wallpaper is hung to contrast with paintwork in rooms punctuated by unique Bitossi pieces. In the section dedicated to the rediscovery of the work of rationalist architect Claudio Salocchi (1934-2012), we can see a mise-en-scène of his house with radically modern furniture—modular sofa, free-standing bookcase, storage desk, a Louis XVconsole table,and mid-century art.
