November 29–January 08 I Saloni Milano in New York will celebrate the excellence of Italian Design with a series of special exhibitions and cultural events throughout New York City this holiday season. The extraordinary 6-week program, including dynamic multimedia art installations by renowned artists Peter Greenaway and Bob Wilson, and festive events by 20 of the leading Italian Furniture Showrooms throughout the city, will bring I Saloni to New York, paying homage to the quality, innovation and beauty for which Italian Design has long been known. The program, presented by FederlegnoArredo (the Italian Federation of wood, cork, furniture and furnishing manufacturers), COSMIT, the organizer of the Milan Furniture Fair since 1961, ICE (Italian Trade Commission), and the Italian Ministry of Economic Development, will shine a light on the long tradition of craftsmanship in Italian Design, one of the highest expressions of Italian Culture and also among the most exported of Italian products worldwide. Special events include: Perchance to Dream, Curated by Robert Wilson Dates: November 30th - December 18th, 2010 Location: Center 548 - 548 West 22nd Street, NYC Free admission Acclaimed playwright, director and artist Robert Wilson will create a special installation that combines the beauty of the human body with that of functional design. A series of video portraits featuring famed Italian ballet dancer Roberto Bolle dancing together with works of Italian design will live alongside actual iconic works of furniture from the last 50 years. This heightened emotional and strikingly contemporary landscape will serve as a backdrop for the viewer to reflect on the history and beauty of Italian design. Leonardo's Last Supper: A Vision by Peter Greenaway Dates: December 3rd, 2010 - January 8th, 2011 Location: Park Avenue Armory - 643 Park Avenue, NYC Hours: Daily 12 noon - 7 pm, entrance every hour; Closed December 25th and January 1st Admission: $12 General Admission (12 and older); $10 Seniors (62 and up), Students (with valid I.D.), Groups (8 or more); Free: Children (11 and under) and Park Avenue Armory Members Presented with great success during the Saloni two years ago, the surprising Leonardo's Last Supper by Peter Greenaway will be shown in the U.S. for its first time ever at the Park Avenue Armory, giving the public a rare opportunity to experience the renowned British artist and filmmaker's provocative
interpretation of Da Vinci's masterwork.

Utilizing sophisticated digital technology and craftsmanship Greenaway has created a perfect copy of one of the world's most celebrated and sacred paintings-a clone in size, color, characteristic, and artistic expression. The masterpiece comes to life before the visitor's eyes thanks to projections of images and light that seem to spring from the original painting, accompanied by a soundtrack of voices, music and sounds.

Art, cinema, poetry, music and cutting-edge technologies will carefully blend together to transform a 500 year-old flat surface into a deeply emotional multimedia experience. Italian Design Street Walking Dates: November 29, 2010 - January 8, 2010 Locations: Various locations To celebrate the excellence of Italian Design and toast the holiday season, 20 Italian Furniture Showrooms will host "Italian Christmas" at their locations during business hours. Stay tuned for details. Prominent shop window banners will identify the 20 showrooms on the "circuit" to guide visitors on their walking tour of "hot spots" of Italian Design throughout the city.
