Walk of Design

Tortona Design Week 2024 aims to highlight the connection between the exhibition itinerary and the territorial context that has always hosted the circuit. This reality becomes a dynamic framework in which exhibiting companies insert their installations, creating an intriguing dialogue between past, present and future, between local and international elements, between tradition and innovation.


As the theme of the 2024 edition, TDW proposes its own "Walk of Design" through the iconic places of the Tortona district, where engaging exhibition installations alternate between closed and outdoor spaces, along its streets and inside ancient factories Places such as the evocative "Ponte degli Artisti," the Antica Fabbrica 14 with its distinctive chimney, the Torneria Traviganti, the imposing complex of the Ex Ansaldo, the Opificio 31 and the Galvanotecnica Bugatti, to name a few, bring with traces of the past, which merge with the creativity and innovation of the new exhibitors.


Our "Walk of Design" recalls the most famous Hollywood walk and as for the "Walk of Fame" here too each location and each company involved in the Tortona Design Week, like a star, has its own particular and unique story to tell: a story of work, commitment, innovation, creativity and success.


The collaboration between companies and the territory integrates design into a plot rich in history and tradition while the key themes of sustainability, technology and craftsmanship act as a common thread, allowing brands to express their vision in an innovative and meaningful way creative.
