Venice Design Week: 'Synaesthesias' is the theme for 2023

News, Appointments — 06 October 2023

The fourteenth edition of the festival dedicated to design and innovation presents ideas and projects from all over the world in the city from 7 to 15 October.

Thematic exhibitions, tours of artisan workshops and Venetian concept stores, opportunities for discussion: Venice Design Week 2023 - which from 7 to 15 October makes design the protagonist of a widespread event in the streets of the city - presents projects by designers that play with our senses, and lead us to explore unexpected emotions, thanks to the theme 'Synaesthesias'.

In addition to the contemporary proposals, there will be three itineraries at the centre of this fourteenth edition: the Light itinerary, which each year presents lighting pieces and light installations created in the city (including projects by Leo de Carlo with Multiforme illuminazione); the Jewellery itinerary, which winds its way through various exhibitions and invites us to dialogue with Venetian artisans and goldsmiths; and the Synaesthetic itinerary, which will surprise visitors.
