Italian Design Day



Italian Design Day

Italian Design Day 2019 (16-22 March) is hosted in collaboration with G5A Foundation for Contemporary Culture.

Italian Design Day in the World is an integrated promotion project launched by the Italian Foreign Ministry together with the relevant Italian Institutions. It reaches this year its third edition with a view to highlighting the excellence and peculiarities of Italian design around the world.

The Italian Design Day 2019 is dedicated to the City of the future, with a focus on the relationship between design and architecture with space, intended as physical, economic, social and environmental. The event will be celebrated in 100 cities around the world thanks to the efforts of Embassies, Consulates and Italian Cultural Institutes, within the scope of the broader promotional strategy of the “Italian Way of Life” campaign. On 20 March 2019, 100 “Ambassadors” of Italian Design – architects, designers, academics, entrepreneurs, critics, communicators – will take part in conferences, promotional events, exhibitions and meetings to present Italian industrial design, one of the distinctive sectors of Brand Italy and a key component of our exports, to an audience of experts and professionals of the sector.

The Italian Design Day in the World is the fruit of the teamwork promoted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation with the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism, the Triennale di Milano, ICE Agency, the Salone del Mobile di Milano, the Association of Industrial Design, and the Compasso d’Oro Foundation, and involves the public and private actors that represent high-quality Italian design, including the world of business and of training.

The Ambassador for Italian Design 2019 for Mumbai is Architect Gennaro Cassiani.

IDD 2019 consists of a permanent exhibition of design and acrhitecture and a series or panels and presentations unfolding throughout the week.
