Following the success of the first three editions of Bologna Design Week, the 2018 Edition will once again partner up with Cersaie to celebrate the week of Ceramics for Architecture and Bathroom Furnishings in Bologna and promote the city’s rich and innovative design culture, in a series of compelling exhibits and entertaining events throughout the city center.

In continued tradition, BDW will bring together and promote the cultural, productive, distributive and creative excellences of the Emilia Romagna territory, engaging showrooms, companies, design studios, art galleries, museums and universities, in an integrated system of communication to empower synergies between industry, culture and creativity.

Bologna Design Week involves companies, designers, interior designers, architects arriving from every part of the world to visit Cersaie and meanwhile discover the beauty of Bologna attending to the several design events in the city.PALAZZO ISOLANI

Rich with history and elegance, this iconic eighteenth century palace will be the main location of many events: design installations, vernissage and cocktail parties dedicated to brands, designers, press and bloggers.And we are extremely glad to announce that Home Style Blogs, along with the some design bloggers of our Network, will take part to these events as social media partner.


  • Exhibition: this annual engagement promotes the culture of the project and takes stock of the role of design as a tool for innovation in the continuous cultural transformation that the city thrives on.
  • Talks: five intense days of exhibitions, workshops, screenings and guided tours that will change one’s perception of the old town, bringing to life the historic buildings, art galleries, deconsecrated churches, unique and undiscovered locations and showrooms.
  • Design Night: Design Night will take place on Wednesday, September 26th and will engage city visitors until midnight to explore itineraries and access unique and undiscovered buildings after hours throughout the historical Bologna city center.
  • Fashion Design / Food Design: each year dozens of showrooms, design stores, art galleries and open city spaces join the BDW to host previews, events and exhibits for a transversal public attracted by new pathways of awareness and discovery.

Bologna is waiting for you next September, from 25thto 29th, to welcome you with design, events, history and delicious food.
