Design, history, art and architecture intertwine in the 2015 edition of DimoreDesign Bergamo: the tour of Historic Homes, specially opened to the public every Sunday from 6 to 27 September. For the occasion, five leading Italian designers – Franco Raggi, FormaFantasma, Luigi Serafini, Marco Ferreri and Luigi Baroli – interpret five historical sites in the city.
Every Wednesday until 7 October there are encounters and conversations with the protagonists of the project. Between traditions and contaminations, homes, installations and design meet and establish a dialogue in the most fascinating places in Bergamo.
