Circolo del Design has new premises and a new director.
Circolo del Design is changing and acquiring an organic structure starting from its premises: from Carlo Mollino’s Terrazza Giolitti at the Chamber of Commerce in Turin to Palazzo Costa Carrù della Trinità in via San Francesco da Paola 17.
Marking the difference is also the decision to appoint as director Sara Fortunati, former founder of “Operae. Independent design fair”.
The way is paved for an evolution that blends the know how gleaned and nurtured over the years of activity, to thoughts, stimuli, debates, experiments that take the complexities and forms of the present into account. To this end the Circolo is developing a varied, diversified and continuous cultural offer while setting up special projects within specific contexts, thus creating a shared culture of research and innovation.
The new design club offers a rich and articulated programme of events, albeit in continuity with the past, so that alongside traditional Mercoledì del Design we will see workshops, exhibitions, talks, conferences, a section dedicated to projects, as well as a library of design and a store. The club also hosts Officina del presente, where project culture can be promoted and produced.
The new Circolo del Design was inaugurated on 2 April with Chair Francesco Profumo on behalf of Compagnia di San Paolo.
