Values: the project must be in compliance with the contemporaneity, innovation and eco- sustainability criteria adopted by ArtVerona, the modern and contemporary art-fair that throughout the years has stood out for the conception of innovative concepts both with regards to thinking and installation. Through Design Welcome, ArtVerona pursues further the research and experimenting path started in the last years through a rich agenda of collateral events inside and outside the fair, also in light of the institutional strengthening given by the recent acquisition by Veronafiere (
