Ciao, Milano!

The people. The parties. The furniture. For more than 50 years design pros have descended on Milan for the hottest furniture fair on the planet, the Salone Internazionale del Mobile. The 2013 edition (April 9-14) is expected to bring more than 1,200 exhibitors, 300,000 visitors, and a bajillion opportunities to see, be seen, and party down with the design world’s elite and up-and-comers. We asked 10 Salone vets from nine countries (notables such as Ronan Bouroullec, Faye Toogood, and Nani Marquina) to share their Milan memories—and more—and we'll be bringing you those interviews in the weeks leading up to the big event. (Wanted to give you plenty of time to book your plane tickets, natch...) But first, here's a look back at some of the sights and awesome event posters from the last 50+ years of the Salone del Mobile.
