Italian Design Day
Italian design was born in the workshops of Renaissance artists, whose diverse skills brought to life innovative products with a high aesthetic content. Ever since then research in the field of industrial design has grown and developed through a constant
interaction between design schools and art movements, combining Italy's remarkable craftsmanship tradition with technological innovation. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation has placed design at the very core of its promotional strategy known as "Vivere ALL’Italiana”, which seeks to promote Italy’s cultural and production system through an integrated action combining culture, economy, Italian language and scientific research.
