Cover Interni edizione Messico

INTERNI, the interiors and contemporary design magazine edited by Gilda Bojardi, has been transformed from a printed title to an international integrated communication system that this month will launch its first editorial initiatives dedicated to Mexico City: a monographic issue  entitled “United Mexican Design” and a “Design Guide Mexico City/Milano”, with the aim of helping foreign visitors find their way around a megalopolis of around 21 million inhabitants with the aid of design-oriented itineraries.

The publications, both of which are in Spanish and English, will have a special print run of 10,000 copies and will be distributed around Mexico City  at bookstores, museums, schools, galleries, showrooms and hotels. The official presentation of the monograph and guide will take place on 4 October at the Italian Embassy in the presence of authorities, and on 7 October at the Soumaya Museum, with architects, operators and the organisers of the project.

Both publications look at issues related to the current situation of Mexico City/CDMX, with regard to architecture, design and art, also in terms of multiple and interweaving linguistic expressions.

INTERNI United Mexican Design

The monographic issue of INTERNI with over 260 pages, is introduced with  the institutional voice of Miguel Ángel Mancera Espinosa, head of the capital’s government, who underlines the dynamism of Mexico in the design field and Giovanni Anzani, chairman of Assarredo, who highlights how a dialogue between Italian design and the local reality offers new and significant opportunities for exchange. Pino Cacucci, the Italian writer of fiction and non-fiction, looks ate the colours of Mexico, the atmosphere and personalities, while a discussion of the leading figures in contemporary Mexican architecture is left to Fernando Romero, Javier Sordo Madaleno, Tatiana Bilbao, Victor Legorreta, Pedro Reyes and Carla Fernandez, and Mauricio Rocha.

Art, meanwhile, is examined the an emblematic overview by Pedro Friedeberg, Pedro Reyes and Raymundo Sesma/Advento Art Design, as well as authoritative testimony by the likes of Juan A. Gaitán for museums; Ricardo Salas Moreno for graphics and the design schools (Universidades Anahuac) and many more – as well as a look at the designers that represent Mexico in Italy and around the world. Finally, two studios created in Milan by the editorial team of INTERNI interpret “suggestions from Mexico”, where Italian design encounters the siesta and the idea of “relax”.

Guida “Design Guide Mexico City/Milano”

The first edition of the Mexico City/Milano Guide (which joins the other International Guides to Milan, New York, Paris, Moscow) meanwhile is a companion in the discovery of places and areas of the city through design itineraries: art and design galleries, museums, hotels, restaurants, specialised bookstores, schools, as well as flagship stores, monobrand and multistores where the best product of the companies that represent Italian design can be found.
