More than simply a publishing house, Corraini Edizioni also proposes a range of carefully chosen books at selected bookstores and museum shops, and holds initiatives including workshops, literary events and small exhibitions.
Following the temporary opening of bookstore 121, 121+ is carrying on the experiment indefinitely.
The store in via Savona 17/5 in Milan’s Tortona quarter is open to enthusiasts and the simply curious. Besides a detailed catalogue of all Corraini books, there is a regularly updated choice of books on design, architecture, art, photography, fashion, illustration, graphics and cookery from the best of international publishing, including North and South America and the Far East; not forgetting a range of small design objects and a careful pick of the best in children’s books.
The tables and shelves are part of a temporary display kindly supplied by designer firms who have agreed to take part in the project: on sale are books, objects and small design pieces.
An intensive calendar of workshops for children and adults, literary events and readings also accompany the bookstore’s activities. In short, there are over 121 good reasons for coming to visit 121+

121+, Bookshop Corraini at the Fondazione Arnaldo Pomodoro and corrainiMAMbo are Corraini Box projects. Corraini Box holds something different every time and might be anywhere…bookstores, shops, maybe even in a factory or a kitchen…
The Corraini Box logo was designed by Paul Cox.
Until December 2007, Corraini Box was in Art Book in via Ventura, Milan, where it hosted exhibitions by Giancarlo Iliprandi, Gianluigi Toccafondo, Bruno Munari and Yoshiko Noda.
From 18 November 2009 to 18 March 2010, Corraini Box was at 121, the first temporary bookstore in Milan, in via Savona 17/5, where it was conceived and run alongside Fabio Castelli from Abook. Temporary because it is due to close on 18 March 2010. 121 is the number of days it is open to the public.
