Winter, Spring, Summer and Autumn in one room: the Salone del Mobile 2018 was inaugurated last night with a spectacular gala dinner, this time in the Sala delle Cariatidi of the Royal Palace.

It also encourages companies, architects and designers participating in the fair to challenge production processes and service methods in order to Stay ahead of the Game”.
