In May, Naples is more than fashionable! There are over fifty locations that are waiting for you for the second edition of Naples Fashion Design on the theme "LuxuryIdeas", from 3 to 14 May.

A personal bet that has become a winning challenge for the city: my idea of transforming the 'Chiaia District', the symbol of Neapolitan elegance, into a circuit of events, exhibitions, installations, and happenings, has come true this year in a second, ever growing edition of the event, also thanks to the involvement of 35 prestigious sponsors and media partners such as RadioMontecarlo and Sky 425. The representative and godmother of the inaugural event at Villa Pignatelli will be Simona Ventura, one of the most popular television hosts in Italy.

On the streets in the heart of the event (Via Morelli, Piazza dei Martiri, via Calabritto, via Santa Caterina, via Chiaia, Via Filangieri, via dei Mille), the most prestigious boutiques will house design works: Molteni furniture, Venini vases, from Barovier lamps to Gessi faucets. On Friday, May 12, the unmissable appointment, from 6 pm, will start with an exclusive 'fashion aperitif'.

In piazza dei Martiri, I invite you to visit a spectacular work of transparent design with a garden and 4 exhibition spaces dedicated to furniture, fashion, and lighting engineering, home and wedding objects, and materials. The successful formula of “Napoli Moda design”, is also a testament to the city's unprecedented centrality in such strategic sectors. And this is no longer a dream ...
