As usual for three years now, from 29 to 31 October 2021 EDIT Naples is back, the fair conceived by Emilia Petruccelli and Domitilla Dardi and dedicated to editorial and author design. For its third edition, which follows the second appointment last year held via digital due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, the event will be held at the Monumental Complex of San Domenico Maggiore, to which are added some symbolic places of the city of Naples.
Quality is the password
The upcoming edition of EDIT Napoli counts over 80 exhibitors, including designers independent, authors and editors of design, Italian and international creators and producers who wish to bring to light initiatives and projects that promote territoriality, expression of research and the transparency of the supply chain. All values that summarize the care and freedom of independent design. Quality is the keyword. All the participants share a single creed: quantity plays an ultimate role here.
An acknowledgment was also announced, in its own name, of the authenticity and values mentioned above. By the end of this month, in fact, the jury of Edit Napoli, this year composed of the Italian designers Andrea Trimarchi and Simone Farresin - Formafantasma , from interior and furniture designer French Dorothée Meilichzon , from the creators of Sight Unseen from New York, Monica Khemsurov and Jill Singer , and the web director of ELLE Decor Italia - Alessandro Valenti , will elect the best projects in the name of the essence of the event. That is, they respond to a form of intelligent design, which respects the cultural heritage and at a well-balanced price.
EDIT Napoli 2021 inaugurates a service, developed by the creators Petruccelli and Dardi with the extreme care that distinguishes them: ' Atlas ' is the means made available of players and buyers to be able to navigate and orient themselves among selected names of designers and designers.
Great space, as the soul of the project wants, is reserved for emerging talents, who this year are 30 - between realities existing for less than 3 years and participants under 30 The area dedicated to them is called “Seminario” and to welcome them there is a temporary loft designed by the architect Giuliano Andrea Dell'Uva.
The dominant turnout of designers and planners from France, Lebanon and Holland, confirms the success of the fair at an increasingly international level.
Side events: EDIT Cult and MADE IN EDIT
During the three days of the event there are numerous appointments that extend in the different areas of the city, including installations and interactive projects.
