"Going to Milan, and being part of Ventura Lam b rate has been the best business decision we have made yet!”
Marcello De Simone and Bruce Wayland, Little Owl Design

‘’The most innovative new players over the past few years have been the Dutch-run Ventura Lambrate district...’’?Marcus Fairs, Dezeen (UK)

“Ventura Lambrate felt really well, I honestly think I belong much more in this type of area than on the fair, especially because it is a place where there is much more space for research and conversation.”?Jaime Hayon

“Ventura Lambrate is without doubt my favorite part of Milan Design Week. It is always bursting at the seams with young enthusiastic designers, new ideas and cutting edge design, with a real festival vibe.”?Katie Treggiden, Design Milk (USA)

“Ventura Lambrate is a gritty industrial district on the city’s edge with seeded workshops, cafés, studios and new cultural buildings, often accommodated in former industrial structures – exactly the kind of framework needed for a creative district. It can manage the difficult but critical shift from high fashion to artsy bohemianism within a single block.”
Edwin Heathcote, Financial Times (UK)
