Paola Lenti presents its new interior and exterior designs in the cloister and the garden of Palazzo delle Stelline
The strength of the new collections is represented by the evolution of the outdoor concept which is extended and varied to make the open space more pleasant and comfortable. Different elements, like gazebos, sails, screens, braziers, benches, are introduced to expand the system of modular architecture that was started with Cabanne. All these different elements are unified by quality, materials and colours

Fondazione Stelline was created in 1986 by the City of Milan and the Regione Lombardia to foster appreciation of Palazzo delle Stelline. The building is located in the centre of Milan and faces the Santa Maria delle Grazie complex, where the ancient monastery of Santa Maria della Stella stood. The monastery served as an orphanage and the orphans were known as stelline. The Foundation’s mission statement is that of promoting the cultural and economic life of the city and the region, assisting in the organization of conferences, debates, events of various types, and training courses. Since its inception the Foundation and the Convention Centre have organized over 1,300 conferences, seminars, courses, debates, and art exhibitions every year. Inside the Palazzo delle Stelline the 175 sqm Sala del Collezionista has been specially adapted and equipped to host exhibits of contemporary and modern art as well as photography exhibitions, often accompanied by catalogues and other publications.
