Here, Edoardo extended his hospitality, sharing insight into artwork currently on display, and Brescia’s must-visits, including the UNESCO heritage sites, museums and galleries. “It was a refreshing experience. The need of overnight guests is very different from long-term artists in residency,” Edoardo says. “We always had interesting and creative guests, and it was a pleasure to take them around the city and show them all the incredible offers a city like Brescia can give,” he adds. Not an easy place to leave, Vipp Palazzo Monti was an antidote to the pace of Milan Design Week. Staged within a historic palazzo and city, the guesthouse made for an immersive creative recharge quite like no other.
