esterni/public design festival/call for entries


After 13 years of actions, projects, ideas, and concrete proposals for public spaces – and after the experience gathered with its public design project – esterni presents the first edition of its Public Design Festival: a festival aimed in the first place for designers and architects, but also for public administrators, companies, and common citizens to focus on public spaces, and on how they are conceived and designed, or, on the contrary, neglected.

A festival lasting six days and featuring installations and projects in some of Milan’s public areas, meeting with representatives of the most important international urban design festivals, debates on the theme of public spaces, an alternative hospitality project, a big party to celebrate public spaces.

During the Salone del Mobile (Milan’s furniture fair), when everyone’s attention is focussed on private spaces, esterni will try to further highlight the important and central role of public spaces as places where citizens develop a sense of community – and they will no longer do it by themselves, but with the help of people from all over the world who have shown an interest in public spaces and have worked on them.
