Ventura Centrale

The design explorer’s guide to Ventura Centrale


Ventura Centrale is Ventura Lambrate's big sister and the latest addition to the 8th edition of Ventura Lambrate Milan (4 - 9 April 2017). Ventura Centrale has the magic of a busy environment, being located in the warehouses of Milan's Central Station, combined with the ambience of a place of abandoned beauty. Its warehouses have been closed off for thirty years and were once used as laboratories, studios and depots. Ventura Centrale offers space to brands with an international reputation that are looking for a unique way to let a large section of the Milan design community experience their work.

From 4 - 9 April, during the Salone del Mobile, a design tsunami will wash over Milan. It’s right in the city centre, at the Milan Central Station, it is in Via Ferrante Aporti 9-21, where you’ll find some of the finest exhibitions at the freshly inaugurated Ventura Centrale, the latest event by Ventura Projects.

A long strip of disused warehouses spreads out along both sides of the rails. Facing the Central Station, follow the pathway on the right-hand side and you will soon reach the Ventura Centrale vaults, which have undergone a massive transformation from depots into full-blown exhibition spaces. We now present you the itinerary for Ventura Centrale, giving you an overview of what to expect from this first edition.
