Venice Design Week, was founded in 2010 with the intent of deepening the relationship between design, arts and crafts. October has become the month dedicated to the design in which you can visit the Venice Design Week and the Biennal of Architecture. Exhibitions and events are organized all over Venice. The VDW map indicates exhibitions, museums, workshop, designers, artist’s studios and exclusive places to discover.

This year marks the seventh year of VDW, and the significant yearly increases in both investments and visitors has made it a landmark fitting in the time that comes after the London Design Festival and before the Moscow Design Week.

VENITIAN ACTIVITY MAP

The VDW map helps visitors discover all the exhibitions, museums, workshop, and artist’s studios in between visions of the future and diving into the past.

The VDW is open to all initiatives that will discuss and exhibit design in October in Venice. If you have a project please write us for the 2017 edition.
