We wanted to collect the great artistic and cultural heritage of this place in order to relate it to the variety of modern and contemporary creativity. The Naturalis Historia, as a tribute to Pliny the Elder, who was born in Como two thousand years ago, served as our guide in this fifth edition. We travelled with her through design, art, architecture, craftsmanship and literature, offering visitors a kaleidoscope of visions and emotions that started in Como and will arrive everywhere. A real thank you to all those who made this edition possible and that desire to embark with us on an even broader journey, fundamental for local communities and environmental balances, looking for ever new, personal and original stories.
