United for Progress

April 23 2021
There are many red threads that bind Audi to the city of Milan: from the passion for progress to that for the avant-garde towards the creation of sustainable mobility. It is for this elective affinity that, for the second time, Audi has chosen to be the main partner of Interni Designer's Week on the occasion of Milan Design City, enriching the cultural schedule of the event with a work by MC A Mario Cucinella Architects, the installation United For Progress.
