Presentation of the Milan furniture exhibition

The first exhibition was held in 1961 on the initiative of a panel of manufacturers who wished to promote Italian furniture exports. Furniture sector leaders met in the same exhibition area in 1965. The leading world architecture review Domus gave them its first article. Two years later, the exhibition became international.

Since then, every year, the Lombardy capital gets ready to welcome the excitement.
