EDIT Napoli, the fair dedicated to high-quality design, will be back in 2020

EDIT Napoli confirms its second edition, which will be held in Naples from 16 to 18 October, in the San Domenico Maggiore monumental complex. Also in 2020, EDIT Naples is hosting companies and designers, preserving its curatorial and commercial vocation. EDIT Napoli strongly supports the in-person edition; however, there will be also a digital version to allow all those who cannot be in Naples to visit the fair remotely.

Domitilla Dardi and Emilia Petruccelli, who conceived the fair, strongly believe in their project and in the potential of the format of EDIT Napoli, which offers real business opportunities to buyers and designers. This initiative is even more important in a period like this, when almost all trade fairs have been cancelled. Moreover, the format of the Neapolitan fair promotes a different idea of business, based on building long-lasting relationships, rather than immediate sale.
