The Embassy of Italy in Hanoi is glad to present the 7th Italian Design Day in Vietnam (IDD). Launched in 2017 by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, IDD is held in more than 100 cities around the world. Its main purpose is to promote the history and modernity of Italian design and architecture, share experiences with partners worldwide and encourage the exchange of innovative practices.

The theme of this edition is “Quality that illuminates. The energy of design for people and the environment”. The concept emphasizes how artificial light represents a tool for modern and green development of urban areas, thus contributing to achieve social inclusion and sustainability.

The message behind the 7th Design Day is consistent with the concept of the candidature of the City of Rome to host the World Expo 2030, whose title is: “People and territories: regeneration, inclusion and innovation”. More info on:

IDD 2023 is also a launching platform for “Il Salone del Mobile di Milano” (Milan, 18-23 April 2023). Established in 1961, the “Salone” represents the largest trade fair of its kind in the world, showcasing the latest innovations in furniture and design from many countries. The next edition of the “Salone” will also host “Euroluce 2023”, the leading fair dedicated to innovative solutions in the fields of internal and external lighting. More info at
