My favorite area was the Brera district and especially the Botanical Garden. The international Be Open Foundation has created a journey through scents. The Garden of Wonders… katinkasaltzmann_1_04 (2)

katinkasaltzmann_1_04 (14)↑ The Danish design duo GamFratesi, called Mindcraft combined some of Denmark’s most talented  designers and craftsmen. This year it was their first time in the design district Brera. The theme ‘In Between’ was highlighted by the mirrored floor and cage-like protection of some works in the space. The Chiostro Minore di San Simpliciano  offered gratefully all its beauty to the mirror.

↑ The umbrella designed by Henrik Vibskov lacked the functional purpose of the regular umbrella and became a sculptural object that reminds us to Tintin’s moon rocket or the DNA double helix. Mostly all  kids tried to do unallowed pirouettes with it. Mindcraft

katinkasaltzmann_1_04 (13)Yes we did not miss the rain even this year, but all in all the weather was in a gentle mood.
