The city in Campania opens its gates to design with the second edition of Edit Napoli (16-18 October 2020 - Vico San Domenico Maggiore 18), an event on projects of design and crafts created by design historian and curator Domitilla Dardi and the entrepreneur Emilia Petruccelli

In the setting of the Complesso Monumentale di San Domenico Maggiore, Edit Napoli 2020 welcomes over 50 exhibitors, including brands like Bottega Nove, Ceramica Gatti, Alvaro Catalán de Ocón, De Castelli, Piatto Unico, Plinio il Giovane, joined this year by a large group of talents under 30.

Many site-specific initiatives offer visitors a chance to visit prestigious locations in the city, in total compliance with anti-Covid regulations, including the Museo Filangeri, featuring the Ceramic Tower by Jaime Hayon: a 5-meter tower full of colored ceramic objects to celebrate twenty years of collaboration between the Spanish designer and Bosa, the company based in the Veneto.

The new design-oriented brand Orografie launches its first collection for 2021, with an open call for a workshop that takes place in the complex of Santa Maria Maggiore for four days (15-18 October). Twenty candidates under 35 will present projects made during the workshop to a jury composed of Francesco Faccin, Carolina Martinelli, Francesca Lanzavecchia, Elena Salmistraro and Vittorio Venezia, who together with the two founders of Edit Napoli, with Giorgia Bartolini and Vincenzo Castellana (respectively founder and art director of Orografie) will select the three best projects, which become part of the Orografie collection.

For people who can’t attend the events in person, Edit Napoli has activated an interesting digital platform for a complete overview. More info at editnapoli.com.
