San Marco Project: dOT & ABLE TO


San Marco Project: DOT & ABLE TO

 SAN MARCO PROJECT is an event created to enhance the value of the church of San Marco in Brera, by involving the piazza and the cloister.

From 17 to 22 April, Piazza San Marco will transform into a thriving urban garden thanks to dOT: Design Outdoor Taste, the outdoor event of the Fuori Salone, and the cloister will host ABLE TO, a reflection upon the relationship between art and design with a selection of furniture, objects, materials and stories.


The historic piazza S. Marco in Brera will transform into a lively urban garden focused on outdoor living, design & lifestyle thanks to the dOT event.

A selection of prestigious brands of furniture, pavings, conservatories, vases and champagne, together with a dynamic, artistic installation, will make dOT an oasis of health, liveliness and charme.

The mood of the 2018 edition will be ‘Water and the Mediterranean’, that will be represented by a signature Spa and a wide selection of plants typical of the Mediterranean landscape.

In the heart of the Brera District a sparkling urban garden will come into bloom with elegant indoor&outdoor atmospheres and a mosaic of settings for the outdoor. From the petit-déjeuner sur l’herbe to the metropolitan pic-nic, from a light snack in the woods to a party in a greenhouse, from a tailor-made dehor to a personal eden, dOT is a stylish and smart proposal of outdoor conviviality and living that is both fashionable and an actual answer to the need for a new lifestyle in search of leisure, beauty and contact with nature.

A lifestyle that brings comfort, quality and the aesthetics of interior design outside, by putting indoor&outdoor in contact.


ABLE TO design + art by T’ABLE presents artifacts that show the paths and horizons of a know-how that has its roots in the culture of the territory and in its connection to innovation, technology, experimentation, design and artistic research.

The historical cloister of the San Marco church will transform into a gallery of ideas, art-and-craft solutions and experiments on shapes and materials that become a stimulus for research and production. In this context, furniture, objects and accessories celebrate ability finalized to creativity.
