GINnasium

An exclusive exhibition within Packaging Première.

5 designers, 5 regions – Lazio, Abruzzo, Campania, Puglia, Sicily – 5 ways to interpret gin packaging.

A designer for each region has designed two gin bottles inspired by their land. The packaging of the bottles has been analyzed by a neuromarketing study involving the end consumer.

It’s not a contest; it’s a creative exercise to which, for the first time in the industry, a neuromarketing study is applied.

The projects and research, gathered in a book, will be presented in a dedicated talk on May 22, with the participation of Portofino Dry Gin, Sense Catch, UPM Raflatac, So.Ve.Mec.

A journey through olfactory art, pastry mastery and digital creativity: Packaging Première and PCD Milan have developed the Home Fragrance project that involves the senses in an extraordinary experience. A sweet-inspired room fragrance that the talented pastry chef Gianluca Fusto, founder of Fusto Milano, dedicates to the 2024 edition of Packaging Première and PCD Milan.

Like a symphony of senses, the students of the Italian Perfumery Institute, engaged in an educational program aimed at developing knowledge about perfume and olfactory culture, actively create the fragrance.
