Venice Design Week was founded in 2010 with the goal of enriching the relationship between design, arts, and crafts. For many centuries, Venice has been recognized as an important port where goods and ideas were exchanged with the east. Merchandise of all kinds arrived in Venice to be transported across Europe. Many machines (and some bizarre ideas) were patented and made in Venice.
October has become the month dedicated to design, giving locals and tourists alike the opportunity to visit Venice Design Week and at the same time the Biennale of Art or Architecture. Exhibitions and events are spread out all over the city. The VDW map helps visitors discover all the exhibitions, museums, workshops, and artists’ studios, offering a thrilling combination of exploring visions of the future and diving into the past.
