The third Lake Como Design Fair has been expanded and is inaugurating a new feature dedicated to design in the city of Como: hence the Lake Como Design Festival. A new event extends from 05th to 10th October 2021 for an immersive experience in the historic centre of the city of Como and its lake. An annual themed appointment, a moment for reflection, and an exhibition of contemporary design. For the first occasion of this new format, Marco Sammicheli (1), curator and journalist, will be setting up a collective exhibition the theme of which will be revealed in January 2021 and will curate meetings and installations for the festival together with the team. Exhibitions, guided tours and meetings will complete the event to further the enjoyment and experience of exploring modern and contemporary design and will accompany you as you discover the historical buildings and secret gardens of the city opening especially for the Lake Como Design Festival. The Festival’s full programme will be announced in January 2021. Lake Como Design Festival is an event created and produced by Wonderlake Como (2).

(2) Lake Como Design Festival is part of a cultural initiative from Wonderlake Como Association, aiming to support and promote awareness of the beauty and heritage of Lake Como, while seeking to encourage people to discover the historical sites of the area. Wonderlake Como is an ensemble of persons and of ideas with their own very particular perspective on Lake Como. The cultural project is run by this non-profit organisation with the aim of promoting, in Italy and around the world, those qualities that have given this area its strong identity. Wonderlake Como is involved in publishing projects, and organises cultural events designed to unveil some of the extraordinary spaces that are not accessible to the public at large, as well places that have remained unknown or have been lost to the popular memory. These events offer also opportunities to introduce international content and ideas for a fertile exchange of viewpoints essential for the rooting of new connections and original perspectives.
