As well as new dealers from all over the world including Dimoregallery from Italy, Golsa from Norway and LeLAB Experimental Atelier from Egypt amongst others.  

Under the exquisite curatorial eye of interior designer Francis Sultana, David Gill Gallery presents a selection of works by Dutch sculptor Barbara Nanning.

Taking inspiration from nature and from Chesa Planta itself, Nanning’s vases and bowls in white, silver and granite hues reflect the landscape and milky white opal glass beautifully depicts the awakening nature in spring. 

Returning to NOMAD is VOLUMNIA , the gallery running a vigorous art and design programme and founded in 2018 by Enrica de Micheli in the Church of Sant’Agostino in Piacenza, Italy. 

Volumnia beautiful setup in the green room 

This year, Volumnia interprets the romantic and ornamented green room of Chesa Planta presenting a harmonious composition of design objects from the Mid-Century by the greatest design masters including Gio Ponti, Osvaldo Borsani and Giovanni Gariboldi. 

Il Lunario del Sole presented by historic Milanese design and decorative arts atelier Fornasetti is absolutely stand out.
