Tortona Design Week announced

Dezeenwire: Italian websites are reporting the launch of Tortona Design Week, a new initiative that will take place in Milan from 12-17 April.

The launch comes after the apparent demise of Zona Tortona, a brand set up by Milanese organisation Design Partners to coordinate activity in the district around Via Tortona during the annual furniture fair.

There has been uncertainty over the future of Zona Tortona following unconfirmed reports of financial difficulties at Design Partners and the arrest last November of director Maurizio Ribotti on suspicion of drug traficking.

Tortona Design Week will be operated by a new organisation called Tortona Area Lab and backed by property owners and agents Superstudio Group, Magna Pars, Tortona Locations and Estate4.
