This is where to have the most fun during Salone.


The hippest place in Milan during Salone del Mobile this April might be one of the city's oldest: The National Museum of Science and Technology, which Torn Dixon has commandeered for a part-invitation, part-portfolio review event called Most, in partnership with Design Miami veteran Ambra Medda and Tar magazine's Martina Mondadori. The former Olivetan monastery dates from the 16th century and is mere minutes from Zona Tortona. Mondadori, a Milan native, says the museum is the perfect venue and "a forerunner of what design is today." The permanent collection, which contains rare documents of Leonardo da Vinci's hand-drawn experiments, will also be open to the public, while the museum's auditorium--recently restored to its early Renaissance glory--will host figures such as Bruce Mau, filmmaker Amos Gitai, and architect Bernard Khoury.
