It might come as a surprise that within the Design Week’s highlights there is a demolition instead of a valorization or a rediscovery of a building as it often happens: despite it all, this is the case of the 2023 Fuorisalone, where in the middle of the Brera Design District,we find the tower that Arrigo Arrighetti designed for Milan’s city offices in the 1950s. The building will soon be demolished to leave space for a new real estate operation, and glofor art brings its spaces back to ephemeral life, making the tower the beating heart of the whole area.

Starting from its facades and then transforming the visual landscape of the public rooms on the ground floor, Dry days, Tropical Nights, by the artist Agostino Iacurci, brings a pop environmental redefinition into the tower, made of tropical palms and colorful lights, which articulates in various installations to give materiality to the 2786 Italy imagined by the philosopher Telmo Pievani and by the geographer Mauro Varotto in “Viaggio in Italia nell’Antropocene”: an ironic reflection on a future that is going to look desert and tropical for the peninsula.
