Following the success of the two previous editions, Bologna Design Week reaffirms the desire to bring together and enhance cultural, productive, distributive and creative excellences based in the local area and elsewhere. At its third edition this year, BDW 2017 will feature more international cultural projects than ever from September 26th to 30th. Exhibitions, workshops, cultural events, design talks, and much more: a rich program of events - some of them starting from Wednesday, September 20th, involving many locations in the city centre, for five days devoted to design culture and cultural and creative industries. BDW 2017 is in partnership with Cersaie, the International Exhibition of Ceramic Tile and Bathroom Furnishings.
Bologna Design Week is an international exhibition devoted to the promotion of design culture in Emilia-Romagna. Held in the Bologna old town centre, BDW is an event that maps and brings together the cultural, educational, creative, productive and distributive highlights of the local region in an integrated communication project. The mapping process is based on co-design principles. All collected data are open-source and published on the website.
