The 58th Salone del Mobile. Milano will be held from 9 to 14 April at the Rho Fiera exhibition center. This year the exhibition opens for the first time with a grandiose concert at the La Scala Theater: the orchestra conducted by Ricardo Chailly, will perform overtures to the opera "Semiramide" and "William Tell" by Gioacchino Rossini and "Pictures from the Exhibition" by Modest Mussorgsky arranged by Maurice Ravel.

In 2019, the whole world celebrates the 500th anniversary of the death of Leonardo da Vinci. That is why in the next iSaloni Manifesto a new category appeared — "genius". The leitmotif of the event was not only a tribute to the great master, but also the role of Milan as a center of attraction, which forms an industrial network, creatively generous and rich.

This year, the format of the show itself will change fundamentally. Since 2019 is an odd year, the exhibition center Rho Fiera, in addition to the furniture forum, will host two more biennial exhibitions — Euroluce and Workplace3.0. The new format of the latter is characterized by greater scale and integration. Workplace 3.0 will reflect the social transformation of the workplace into an open, permeable and dynamic space, ready to merge professional and everyday life.

Another premiere of the year is the new concept of the S. Project exhibition dedicated to decorative and technical solutions in interior design. The main heroes of the 22nd Salone Satellite exhibition, which will be held in pavilions 22−24, will be 550 young talents. The theme of this year is "Food as an object of design".

One of the exhibits dedicated to Leonardo da Vinci will be located in the very center of Milan, at the ancient gate of the Conca dell’Incoronata. The main theme of the exhibition "AQUA. Leonardo’s Vision" will become a phenomenal talent of the master and his exploration of water. Viewers will be able to touch a small time span of the Renaissance and the future of Milan.

Another event dedicated to the master, will be held in the pavilion number 24 of the exhibition center and will reflect the heritage of the master in the field of art, applied design and construction. DE-SIGNO. Leonardo ("DE-SIGNO. The art of Italian design before and after Leonardo") is an atmospheric narrative about the genius da Vinci and his influence on modern Italian design.

The closing ceremony of Salone del Mobile. Milan on April 12 will be held at the Marino Palace.
