#Designgoeson: furniture and design trade shows, in Italy and worldwide, are rescheduling dates 2021/2022

The Covid-19 health emergency made furniture and design fairs around the world revise their entire schedules. At the beginning of the emergency it still seemed possible to simply postpone the dates by a few months, then it gradually became apparent that it was impossible to hold trade shows during 2020. The fairs scheduled for 2020, therefore, have been rescheduled between 2021 and 2022.
