Uni Sonos - A celebration of female empowerment, inclusion, creativity and design from 15 to 21 April.

A project that stems from UniCredit's ongoing commitment to supporting women's empowerment and an important collaboration combining design and culture. Uni Sonos is formed in partnership with the Arena di Verona and Studiopepe, an international design studio led by two women. Featuring a never-before-seen collection of stunning costumes of Aida and female figures created for the 100th Arena di Verona Opera Festival 2023 by Stefano Poda, an installation that merges music and architecture, the worlds of finance, art and design bringing them together. This landmark collaboration is derived from the concept of "Uni Sono", where voices with different timbres and characters unite to resonate with the same frequency and pitch, reflecting UniCredit and Studiopepe's shared values of unity, support, and togetherness.


Uni Sonos is born of two institutions working together who are a natural fit with each other, as Studiopepe's extraordinary and innovative approach to design aligns perfectly with UniCredit's commitment to excellence, being forward-thinking, and acting for change.


The project also attests UniCredit's well-established partnership with Fondazione Arena di Verona, the only Italian opera foundation directed by a woman, Cecilia Gasdia (currently in her second term). Uni Sonos showcases the very peak of female creativity and culture in a unique setting that mirrors the iconic Arena di Verona, with contemporary amphitheater-shaped structures that serve as both a stage for performances and a communal gathering space. Its inviting, curved forms encourage exploration and the pleasure of discovery. The Auditorium will also host discussions, uniting thought leaders and innovators to delve into topics related to Italian culture, societal trends, and aspirational design.


Andrea Orcel, UniCredit Group CEO, said: "UniCredit is proud to make its debut at Milan Design Week 2024, a renowned and historic event, as well as a symbol of Italian and international creative capacity. Uni Sonos fully represents UniCredit's belief in women's empowerment, equity, and inclusion, thanks to installations and performances that represent the cutting edge of design by Italy's most innovative women designers. We are proud to collaborate with Studiopepe, celebrating a partnership that provides a platform to showcase the work of these young women designers. This event testifies that inclusive and sustainable growth, driving communities to progress, and unlocking the potential of our clients and people, are all at the heart of our daily commitment to all our stakeholders".


Throughout Milan Design Week, visitors will experience the power of voice and unity through a series of captivating performances and the installation at the UniCredit Building. These enchanting evening performances will create a unique and immersive experience that underscores the significance of integration and togetherness.


During the day, attendees are also invited to record audio clips of their own voices, to be woven into an evocative symphony. This interactive element of the project emphasizes the importance of creativity and interaction in shaping a more equitable and sustainable world.


Uni Sonos celebrates UniCredit's shared values and dedication to push the boundaries of creativity while supporting women's empowerment.

We look forward to welcoming you to the immersive Uni Sonos experience.


The event is open to the public.
