EDIT Napoli is an innovative design fair created to support, promote and celebrate a new generation of designers.
It focuses on the rise of the designer-maker who is at the forefront of a movement that is challenging the traditional chain of production and distribution.
EDIT Napoli selects a specific group of international, independent producers, craftsmen and enlightened manufacturers, emerging as an autonomous force in contemporary design.
Welcome to EDIT, welcome to napoli
We are looking for designers, design studios, manufacturers, artisans and producers with practices rooted in making. The exhibition will be held in Palazzo Mondragone - Naples June 2019 - aiming to forge partnerships between the designers and the thought leaders of the design world with a strong focus on international buyers and retailers.
You are EDIT Napoli if you value quality over quantity.
The emphasis is on the process and the use and application of materials. The collection is produced on a small-scale but could be suitable for industrial production.
The pieces are not in limited editions and they are not prototypes.
We nurture authenticity and uniqueness.
DESIGN IN RESIDENCE
The Residency program of EDIT Napoli is fully committed to the territory and its heritage.
It recognizes and protects the importance of the local traditions. The program connects international designers with traditional Italian artisans for a full month of collaborative living and making.
Hand in hand they will produce a collection of unique pieces conceived by bridging different knowledge, local with global, past and present, ownership and authorship.
The Residency of EDIT Napoli is proposing a new land of possibilities for the future of historical craftsmanship.
Our first three designers have been selected for the launch of the program, starting September 2018.
The outcome of their creative journey will be produced under the label Made in EDIT and commercialized and presented at EDIT Napoli.

Napoli is a choice.
It generates creative energy from its extremes and contradictions.
It’s a place of undisciplined visionaries, navigating life with passion and individuality.
It’s a source of sensory inspiration and a Mediterranean capital in the international circuit of culture.
Napoli can create impossible links between people and stories where anything can happen.
Greetings from Naples.
