Founded in 2018, Alcova is an itinerant platform for independent design. With its fifth edition coming up, Alcova prepares to continue its exploration of the city of Milan with an exciting new location, and we are today excited to announce that the 2023 edition will see the debut of the former Porta Vittoria abattoir as the exhibition’s new venue.

Today in a state of neglect but poised for a radical and permanent transformation, the area will be activated by Alcova in an interstitial phase. The platform conceived by Joseph Grima (founder of Space Caviar) and Valentina Ciuffi (founder of Studio Vedèt) will once again bring design and research into dialogue with surprising and historically significant urban settings, entering into a temporary relationship of cohabitation with nature that has grown wild and spontaneously taken over these imposing sites.

After having activated a former bakery factory, a cashmere factory, the buildings of a military hospital complex, Alcova renews its commitment to bring historical and significant spaces for the city to life, transforming them into a stage of unrivalled beauty for a selection of designers shaping the future. Whether designers, galleries, museums, schools or companies, Alcova seeks to shine a spotlight on the most forward-looking design being produced today.
