There are queues to enter: so to enter see Alcova it is better to know first what you will find. The short answer is: a lot of experimental design. This is an environment that will appeal to those looking for small but intense projects, sometimes complex and that can be explained through the stories of those who designed them (also due to the curatorial choice of the Grima-Ciuffi which prevents the display of signs for exhibitors).
