With new districts popping up on an annual basis, the list of who and what to see grows ever more unwieldy as each year passes. That’s where we come in.

The British designer is going bigger and better with his creative retail concept Multiplex. This year’s iteration is divided into three sections inside the cinema and gallery Teatro Manzoni.

Other highlights include a film festival launched in collaboration with IKEA.
