Airbnb: Una Passeggiata
Built in Milan in the fifteenth century, Casa degli Atellani was once the centre of parties and celebration for the city’s elite. It was also home for some time to Leonardo da Vinci, who lived there while he painted The Last Supper. Today the echoes of the home’s lavish heyday live on for visitors, who were privileged to experience a design curation at the casa during this year’s Salone del Mobile.
As part of Airbnb’s new Trips platform, the company partnered with Italian design publisher Martina Mondadori Sartogo and designer to present Passeggiata during Salone. Named for the Italian practice of leisurely walks, Passeggiata featured intimate and interactive explorations of the personal collections of internationally renowned and emerging designers, such as architect Roberto Baciocchi and Dimore Studio, set in the beautiful casa and other places around Milan. Guests were able to view exclusive personal collections by the featured designers, as well as attending curated experiences in other fields such as jewellery design and food.
