Among the guests Maki and Tukwini Mandela and important fashion exponents such as Nicola Paparusso founder of African Fashion Gate – the permanent ethical laboratory against the phenomena of racism, xenophobia and anti-Semitism in fashion, in the arts and entertainment – and creator among others of the award La Moda Veste la Pace which in the past was also awarded to Giorgio Armani, Franca Sozzani, Valentino Garavani and that this year in Rome will be given to Maki Mandela and the British music group Simple Minds while Claudio Azzolini will receive a special recognition.
The Mercato Centrale project, which houses B2B, is an idea that becomes a place, a point of reference for those who love, live and choose food. Founded in 2014 in Florence, Mercato Centrale opened in 2016 in Rome, in 2019 in Turin and finally arrived in Milan in 2021. Mercato Centrale Torino is located in Porta Palazzo, the heart of the city in continuous ferment. The shops with the goodness of the artisans merge with art and events in spaces open to all, because the Market is a place of exchange of stories, ideas and opinions.
