After a careful analysis of the current global spread of Covid-19, the organizers of MIA Photo Fair
have decided to cancel the 2020 edition, initially scheduled in March and then postponed to September 2020.
The tenth edition of MIA Photo Fair will be held from the 25th to the 28th of March 2021, in the new location of SUPERSTUDIO MAXI in via Moncucco, in the Famagosta district, near to the Navigli area.
"In this climate of uncertainty due to the Covid-19 emergency - says Fabio Castelli, MIA Photo Fair founder and director - we have decided to suspend MIA Photo Fair 2020 to concentrate all our efforts on the 2021 edition. For its tenth edition, MIA Photo Fair will move to a new location, the SUPERSTUDIO MAXI, a futuristic industrial conversion project of 7.300 sqm, created by the Superstudio group.
The decision was also made to meet the will of the owner of The Mall to partially change the original use of the location".
It is a sort of homecoming - continues Fabio Castelli. The first editions of MIA Photo Fair were held at Superstudio Più in the Tortona area. Our relationship with the Superstudio Group has remained excellent since then. We started to deal with the Borioli family, owner of Superstudio, a few months ago, before the beginning of the renovation of SUPERSTUDIO MAXI, evaluating together which could be the possible synergy between MIA Photo Fair and Superstudio Events that manages all the exhibitions of Superstudio Group.
Furthermore, thinking about wider scenarios, we feel that this new location has a great potentiality and we are sure that the Famagosta district can quickly become one of the centers of photography in Milan, just like the Tortona area has become for design".
"Milan has launched major regeneration projects for its suburban districts which now play a leading role in the development of the city. The Famagosta district is the one hosting, among others, the futuristic IULM University building and the new location of the Politecnico School of Design, aiming at enhancing the high-level cultural purpose of the whole district"
