From 29 to 31 October 2021, over 80 international exhibitors including independent designers, brands and manufacturers will bring to life the third edition of EDIT Napoli, the fair focused on design authors, conceived by Domitilla Dardi and Emilia Petruccelli. Historic places and exceptional locations around the city will also host installations and exhibitions by Lidewij Edelkoort, Daniel Kruger for Galleria Antonella Villanova, La Manufacture, Stephanie Moussallem for House of Today, Federico Pepe curated by Federica Sala, while the prototypes of the Hybrida collection born of the collaboration between the architect-designer Patricia Urquiola and the Caselli Institute – Royal Factory of Campodimonte for MADE IN EDIT, will be the protagonists of an exhibition and a solidarity auction in collaboration with Christie's.
EDIT Napoli www.editnapoli.com – the international fair dedicated to independent designers and design authors – will open its doors to the public from 29 to 31 October 2021 (press preview: 28 October by accreditation; 29 – 31 October open to the public 10.00h – 19.00h) within the spaces of the Monumental Complex of San Domenico Maggiore, in the heart of Naples, and in some quintessential, symbolic hotspots of Neapolitan and Mediterranean culture.
A fair with a strong curatorial and commercial trait. The exhibitors of EDIT Napoli 2021 will bring to a professional and non-professional public, products and projects that promote quality over quantity, territoriality over globalization, and those that make a transparent supply chain one of their strengths.
Over 80 exhibitors, including independent designers, design authors, creators and manufacturers, responded enthusiastically to the curatorial call by the creators of the fair, Domitilla Dardi and Emilia Petruccelli. Among these, 30 are the emerging names that will form part of the Seminario – the section of the fair dedicated to designers under 30 and brands with less than three years of activity, which will be set up in a temporary loft inside the Complex designed by the architect Giuliano Andrea Dell'Uva.
"The gaze of this 2021 edition turns beyond the border, with particular attention to the Mediterranean. Many collaborations have been formed with international brands and designers, such as those with France, Lebanon and the Netherlands, as well as those with the growing number of young designers that will animate our Seminario" – affirms Domitilla Dardi, curator of the fair.
