Alcova is a platform for independent design developed by Valentina Ciuffi (founder of Studio Vedèt)
and Joseph Grima (founder of Space Caviar).
Currently operating as an itinerant network of exhibition spaces across multiple sites
in and around Milan, it activates forgotten locations of historical significance,
temporarily recasting them as venues for exhibitions, installations and performances.
After an extraordinarily successful September 2021 edition,
Alcova will bring back to life its beautiful Inganni location
where design merges with nature, expanding its research for places
even further and opening the doors of a new section never before
accessible to the public.
As with previous editions, Alcova 2022 will present a comprehensive and inspiring cross-section of the rapidly evolving world of design. The exhibitions presented will alternate works from established international figures with a selection of emerging talents, exploring new and exciting developments in the fields of technology, materials, sustainable production, social practice and many other branches of design. The 2022 edition of Alcova will also extend its offer of food and drinks experiences and convivial spaces, thanks to exciting collaboration. Ecological, political and anthropological discourse, tales about the history of design or expressions of new exhibition currents intertwine convincingly across the many new pieces in this new edition.
