Move Over, Milan: This Naples-Based Fair Is Providing Young Designers a Prominent Platform

Milan’s Salone del Mobile might be the largest and best-known design event in Italy, but it’s by no means the be-all and end-all of the country’s creative scene. Case in point: EDIT Napoli, which held its fifth edition over three days at the beginning of October. Curated by Emilia Petruccelli and Domitilla Dardi, the design fair took place within the recently renovated cloisters, atriums and frescoed rooms of the Archivio di Stato di Napoli, the city’s historic State Archives building. There were several gems from emerging European talents, who have a better chance to shine at a smaller, more intimate fair like this one. Here are our picks from Naples.
