Edit Napoli: An Alternative Design Fair
There’s a new type of design fair in Naples, Italy and we’re all open ears. In the historical centre of the Southern city, Emilia Petruccelli and Domitilla Dardi are creating a fair that focuses on new design, craftsmanship and affordable products. This is Edit Napoli.
Created by Dardi , senior design curator at Maxxi Museum in Rome and Petruccelli, owner of Rome’s Galleria Mia, the platform not only offers a showcase of products that are affordable to the public, but has also started a residency programme: this connects various international makers with ones that are established in Naples. The designers learn traditional making from Neapolitan artisans and the final product of their collaboration is shown at Edit Napoli as part of Made in Edit.
From June 6th to the 9th, Edit Napoli will open its doors at Palazzo Mondragone as design looks to revive artisanal craftsmanship.
