In the official program of Milano Design Week, the event organized by the phygital platform TERRASZA dedicated to outdoor design, promises a unique surprise: an open-air cinema. This initiative is the fruit of a collaboration with the FX Barcelona School of Cinema and Animation, alongside the winning projects of the International 3D Awards competition promoted by Gandia Blasco e Bo Models. Il Giardino di Alik is transformed into a space where design, nature, and art converge, reminiscent of the floral photographs in the SOLI series by Francesca Romano on display. All of these elements harmonize with “Materia Natura,” the theme of Fuorisalone 2024.

The inaugural edition of TERRASZA MILANO 2024, scheduled from April 15th to 21st, is hosted by a newly launched phygital platform focused solely on Exterior Design. It promises an array of surprises. Endorsed by the Comune di Milano and included in the official Milano Design Week program, the event presents a distinctive opportunity for both professionals and enthusiasts to explore the domains of outdoor design and living.

Set in the Giardino di Alik, the location of the Centro Artistico Alik Cavaliere at Via Edmondo de Amicis 17, TERRASZA MILANO 2024 is nestled in the lively core of the 5VIE district—a nexus of design and art through history. In this evocative setting, amid the sculptures of one of the late 20th century’s most celebrated contemporary art figures, attendees can experience the latest in outdoor furnishings and accessories from a range of companies. This exceptional venue illuminates the moonlit charm of outdoor spaces.

The exhibition’s layout, meticulously curated by A4A Rivolta Savioni Architetti, ensures a harmonious presentation of products from Benkert Bänke, Bover, Ca\Stil, Carola fra i Trulli, Diabla, Lorelux, Magis, Musola, Novara Outdoor Kitchens, Plust, Vajillas de Ultramar, and Viscio Urban Design.

In the charming setting of Alik Garden, an open-air cinema will be set up, with seating for outdoor use provided by various companies. In addition to dreamy images of terraces, gardens, and pools, the FX Barcelona ArchViz School, a school specializing in cinema and animation that offers a master’s degree in architectural visualization, has created a collage of the most beautiful outdoor scenes in cinema history. Professional training is increasingly in the spotlight for industry companies, which seek professionals of this caliber and support their growth and development, including initiatives like the International 3D Awards, the first global 3D creation competition for artists and creatives, promoted by Gandia Blasco Group in collaboration with the Bo Models platform. The winning projects selected from over 90 candidates representing 20 countries will be showcased, all focused on the theme of biophilia.

Guests of the newly opened TRIBE, hotel at Milano Malpensa will delight in an experience shaped by a partnership with TERRASZA, born out of a shared ambition to foster a communal space with a strong emphasis on design. The hotel boasts a central social hub, a terrace with a swimming pool, and an outdoor green area adorned with furniture from renowned outdoor brands. This collaboration ensures that, during Design Week, a seamless link is created between the city center and the new hotel, located at Milan’s most crucial hub, signifying TRIBE brand’s debut in Italy.

The outdoor cinema will be the highlight of a week dedicated to shared enjoyment and appreciation of the outdoors, creating a connection point where nature, design, and art intersect, as seen in the SOLI series’ floral photographs by Francesca Romano This event aims to provide a counterpoint to a network of showrooms and garden centers throughout the city, (also available on Google Maps) all pinpointed on a map created by Ángela Léon. The illustrator has encapsulated TERRASZA’s entire visual theme, embodying not just a place for relaxation in balconies or gardens but also a corner for work, in sync with the natural environment. It visualizes outdoor areas, public squares, and streets as spaces where people congregate, reflecting on the society that thrives in what is termed the ‘sunny interior’ a communal, dynamic sphere of energy. This aligns with “Materia Natura,” the theme of Fuorisalone 2024.


De’Longhi, a partner embodying sustainability, will offer a unique coffee experience throughout the week with its new Rivelia machines. These machines, designed to brew fresh coffee from freshly ground beans, facilitate easy switching between coffee varieties, elevating the home bar experience.

Throughout the week at the venue, guests can enjoy Maniva mineral water, the perfect companion for those committed to wellness through a healthy and balanced lifestyle. Additionally, at the event on April 17th, attendees will have the chance to sample Krombacher beer and Valdo Paradise Rosé Brut spumante, presented in its distinctive bottle adorned with a unique design of flowers, plants, animals, and elements of Italian art by New York designer Ceci Johnson. This design quintessentially captures the essence of TERRASZA.

The evening is orchestrated in partnership with the international German design institution iF International Forum Design GmbH from Hannover. Renowned for its iF DESIGN AWARD, given annually since 1954, iF is a globally acknowledged symbol of outstanding design. Milan has been selected for the iF DESIGN STUDENT AWARD 2024, one of the most prestigious accolades for design students globally. The victors will be honored in June 2024 at the Triennale di Milano.
