During the first day of the design week, the Krea installation will also be inaugurated. Different images in creative processes’, an opportunity to delve into a sample that explores the value of creativity from situations and unique life experiences of groups at risk of social exclusion. Those attending the opening day will also be able to see a prototype temporary shelter that has been designed with the objective of responding to needs arising in emergency situations, such as the current Syrian conflict or the earthquakes affecting Italy.
