Throughout the duration of Milan Design Week a pink tram will plow through the city’s tracks during afternoon time slots within the Brera district. It will not be difficult for you to spot it thanks to its pale pink colour palette. We are talking about the historic 1928 tram, reinterpreted in a contemporary flair by the designer Cristina Celestino for this occasion.

Cristina Celestino’s design is inspired by the theme of travel, where precious materials and references to the past meet. The space inside the tram is divided into two parts, which reproduce two recurring moments in theatres and cinemas. A foyer, interpreted as a soft and padded waiting room, with composed and rigorous sofas, windows covered by Rubelli curtains visible from the outside, and Besana inlaid floor carpeting.

The rear, divided by a light curtain in trimmings, houses a small cinema where passengers can enjoy a view of the city, comfortably seated on the poufs designed by Cristina Celestino. The tram will stop in piazza Castello 2, via Cusani 4 and piazza Cairoli. How do you get a ticket? You can buy one online.
