Or, Lambrate isn’t Ventura anymore. It depends.
Anyway, Ventura Projects and Organisation in Design say bye to Lambrate, to choose other locations.
This year, it presents two big projects: Ventura Centrale and Ventura Future.
This is the second edition of Ventura Centrale, organized around the abadoned warehouses of the Central Station. Key words are contemporary, design and the right mixture between new projects and the already famous ones.
Here’s a preview:
