Fuorisalone during Milano Design Week, with almost three thousands events spread around more than six hundreds venues, attracts half a million visitors: what do they say and feel about those events? Twindex Fuorisalone is a mash-up that listens what all those visitors posted on Twitter and Instragram in that week. In this paper, we briefly report on how Twindex Fuorisalone works and on its ability to listen in real-time the pulse of Fuorisalone on social media.
