The Glitch Camp is the first free urban camping powered by IED which we offer in cooperation with the Comune di Milano and Milanosport S.p.A. Our goal is to make the city more accessible to students from all over the world thanks to a free service that allows them to experience Milan Design Week and its many events first-hand.


Registration is open until 31/03. 


Upon receipt of your registration, we’ll confirm acceptance of your request and stay so that you can organise your trip. If all places are filled, we’ll put you on a waiting list.
