About us In the Tortona area, the historic Fuorisalone district where design began to present itself in innovative ways since 2001, Tortona Rocks, edition after edition, has established itself as an exhibition and communication concept dedicated to contemporary design.

Tortona Rocks is the independent project extended in the Tortona area that selects and promotes the contents of the extensive exhibition circuit and the Opificio 31 exhibition hub run by Milano Space Makers.
