Passeggiata: An Airbnb debuts during Salone
Boh staff

Curated by Martina Mondadori Sartogo, “Passeggiata” is an interactive exhibit and installation at the private home Casa degli Atellani, running April 4 to 7 during Salone del Mobile. Built in the 15th century, it once served as the residence of Leonardo da Vinci, who lived there while painting The Last Supper.

The exhibit is inspired by Airbnb’s new Trips platform and hosts designers and tastemakers including JMartinSam Baron and Rodman Primack, as well as collections of designers curated by Mondadori Sartogo, featuring works from DIMORE STUDIO and architect Roberto Baciocchi alongside vignettes of work from emerging designers. 

The experiential installation is meant to highlight the Trips platform, which was unveiled in November in 12 cities. The brand explains, “Trips adds local experiences, insider recommendations, known as Guidebooks, and social meetups to the thousands of homes available to stay in, and brings together where you stay, what you do and the people you meet all into one place, and all powered by local people.” The Milan Trips option will launch later this year.
