In the evenings, along the 10 days of Water Design, there will be a rich programme of events and meetings, shows and screenings.

In addition to the conference held by Philippe Daverio (October 6, at 5.15pm, in the Piazza d’Armi of Castello Sforzesco, in the Hall of Festival dell’Acqua), we are pleased to announce the partnership with Milan Design Film Festival for the second consecutive year.  As a preview of the Festival which will start one week later ( Milan Design Film Festival – October 15 to 18), we will host the screening of a movie about the theme of water.

To live on a boat in the heart of London. A landscape bordering city and countryside, inhabited by people who live outside the conventional schemes of life. The wealthy live on the banks of the river Thames whilst those who cannot afford a flat live on Regent’s Canal. They are united by only one thing: a love of nature and of freedom. Everything else divides them. To see them follow their daily habits, to get to know them and, finally, to tell their stories in a documentary that portrays an unusual London and a lifestyle that is becoming more and more widespread.
