Udine Design Week proved to be one of Mudefri’s most important projects. Launched almost by chance in 2017, following the mapping of design in Friuli made in 2010, over time it has garnered the support of several institutions and companies, culminating in 2020 with the collaboration of “Gruppo Giovani Imprenditori Confindustria Udine” (Young Entrepreneurs Group of Confindustria Udine). From the start it has been characterized by the intent to enhance the entire design chain, from the designer to the consumer through companies, shops and schools.
We aim to create community and awareness, to recognize creativity.
These are the companies that supported us in the first stage of funding, the crowdfunding that we launched and successfully completed between February and March 2016. To these must be added the approximately sixty private citizens, friends and acquaintances, who considered the initiative worthy of their attention and helped to reach the budget to start with this Virtual Museum of Design of Friuli Venezia Giulia (MuDeFri).
Through small initiatives and free donations we are managing to carry on our design dream.
