Agorà Design is a biennial event dedicated to the culture of architecture and design. Since 1996, the event has been held in Martano, in the heart of Grecìa Salentina. Thanks to the event, the village becomes a meeting place for a nomadic community of designers, creative talent, students, artisans and entrepreneurs from all over Italy, as well as a space for the free circulation of ideas on cultural and social issues relating to architecture. Dialogue and encounters between different generations and cultures are the soul of Agorà Design. A breeding ground for international talent, the days of the event give young people the opportunity to compare themselves with the big names in contemporary architecture present at each edition. In addition to cultural insights, the aim of Agorà Design is to bring creative people and companies together. It does so through a competition open to designers and craftsmen that offers cash prizes and rewards, giving professionals the chance to transform an idea into a prototype that will be distributed worldwide, thanks to the support of Sprech, the event's main partner. Agorà Design is a project sponsored by the cultural association of the same name, led by Lucia Rescio.
