Although you seem to be made ​​of impenetrable rock and to be incredibly rational, especially in your reasoning for eating gnocchi with meat sauce on Thursday nights and washing the car every Saturday morning, underneath it all you’re a romantic who lives every day as if it was the most beautiful thing possible in the universe. You secretly get excited watching a boy who helps an old lady cross in the crosswalk. It warms your heart, especially during the week of the Salone del Mobile, when you see a young man offer his seat to a mother with a small child on the subway. Hide away your tears of admiration behind a fake sneeze and quick dab of a tissue if you happen to lock eyes with a promising young designer intent on explaining the design features of their latest (and first ever) product to a bevy of potential Asian customers. Capricorn you are like surveyors with a passion for surrealism and impressionism. You believe that the attitude with which you approach the world of work, as well as the Salone and Fuori Salone, is the winning ingredient in this complex and competitive world. You are wrong though, because what makes you unique is the feeling and emotion that guides your every choice or decision. This year, do not be afraid to let others see your weaker side and visit the installation “Amazing Lexus Design 2014” where internationally renowned design Fabio Novembre (Italy) , Nao Tamura (Japan) and the American team at the MIT Media Lab, have ventured to create works that have the capacity to generate genuine emotion from visitors. It is not so dissimilar to the secret ingredient that characterizes your own work that is never explicitly revealed, either from you or from your accomplishments. (translation by Stefania Quaini / Erin Russo)

The following astrological horoscopes were born from a verbal confrontation between a self-proclaimed architect and an uninsured city planner and are lacking any sound foundation.The following statements are an excuse to re-imagine the way in which we experience the Salone del Mobile 2014, and the surrounding area. All islands included and Chinese calendars permitting.
