The Milan Furniture Fair will be in New York from the end of November to promote Italian design, art, and culture, and to celebrate its 50th anniversary. "Leonardo’s Last Supper: A Vision by Peter Greenaway" will be on exhibit. Robert Wilson will present a series of video portraits featuring famed Italian ballet dancer Roberto Bolle. Twenty Italian furniture showrooms will host an “Italian Christmas” at their retail locations.
The events are co-sponsored by Federlegno Arredo (the Italian federation of wood, cork, furniture, and furnishing manufacturers), COSMIT (organizer of the Milan Furniture Fair since 1961), ITC (Italian Trade Commission), and the Italian Ministry of Economic Development
