Brera Design District

dOT & ABLE TO: the green core of #Fuorisalone19

The parvis of the majestic Basilica di San Marco – gateway to Brera Design District – and its historical cloisters turn into an enchanting urban garden thanks to dOT & ABLE TO, the outdoor event of Fuorisalone in the historic Piazza San Marco - Brera.

Green settings and outdoor solutions will surround you, thus creating an authentic oasis for you in the city center, where nature, design and beauty blend in offering unique views and relax to you.


For the third year in a row,  dOT’s green settings will constitute the green core of the most creative and bohemien district of Fuorisalone. A regular area of 400 sqm turns into a lush urban forest, proposing elegant solutions for moments of outdoor relaxation and conviviality during the day as well as marvelous views and fascinating scenarios at night.

Outstanding products of the Outdoor Design & Living, accompanied by toasts to celebrate Milan and its creativity, sophisticated settings, bath-tubs and waterfalls create the perfect atmosphere far away from the frenzy of  the Milan Design Week. dOT does not only offer a Petit-déjeuner sur l’herbe or a metropolitan pic-nic, but also much more, such as happy-hours into the nature, tailored-made dehors and a personal Eden. Thanks to the collaboration with ABLE TO, dOT reaches the cloisters of the Basilica too.


 ABLE TO design + art by T’ABLE presents products, which show a know-how and a mindset typical of the territory and of its connection to innovation, technology, experimentation, design and artistic reseach.

The historical cloisters in Piazza San Marco are the core of new ideas and of art-and-craft solutions, experiments on shapes and materials that drive  new processes of research and production. Furniture, artworks and products praise the ability – Able to –  to be creative.
