In the companies section there is an overview of the manufacturers registered on our portal, divided by product category, where you can contact us for any request. Our portal also has a special catalogues section to allow professionals and operators in the sector to view in a practical way all the catalogues relating to the various products (furniture hardware, upholstery materials, furniture paints, etc.). In addition, to allow easy consultation of the products, our portal has reserved a product section, organized by categories, where you can find out about the technical characteristics, materials and functionality of each product. The video section, on the other hand, presents numerous video interviews given by professionals and manufacturers that report news, insights and informative content on the best technologies in the sector.


In addition, to keep you constantly informed you can also consult our Journal section which contains all the Furnishing Idea magazines dedicated to the furniture and furnishing industry, such as the edition dedicated to Sicam or Interzum, two of the most important trade fairs in the sector.

Today I am honored to take on this role at a crucial time of transformation and I would like to thank those who have supported me in the hope of proving myself worthy of an event that has a history of great success. Together with the entire Board of Directors, we will have the task of accompanying the Salone, a unique and indispensable stage for design, towards the future challenges of sustainability, digitalization, research, innovation, creativity, and inclusion, while maintaining the highest quality“.
Gianfranco Marinelli, chairman of Federlegno Arredo Eventi, explained the appointment as follows: “The decision to appoint a young, motivated chairwoman is the result of a strategy that aims to consolidate the event's leading international role in a period of great change. Maria Porro will be able to count on the support of the entire Board of Directors of Federlegno Arredo Eventi in order to continue the path of renewal and growth of the Salone del Mobile.Milano with determination“.
Claudio Feltrin, President of FederlegnoArredo, wishing Maria Porro all the best in her work and that of the entire federation, said, “Expertise, passion, creativity, the ability to listen and synthesize, as well as strong roots in the entrepreneurial fabric of the furniture industry and in the history of design.
